BOSTON--()--As the obstacle racing frenzy continues to take the nation by storm, industry pioneer Ruckus Sports returns to the Marshfield Fairgrounds for the second time this year with a brand new obstacle race: The Fearless Fall 5k. After a season of wildly successful signature races throughout the country, Ruckus is shaking things up in Boston to meet area demand for another chance to compete on what’s been coined as the “ultimate playground.” Boston participants of all ages will be the first to experience the all-new 5k obstacle course designed for all levels of fitness featuring premier obstacle innovation, unprecedented spectating, and the inclusion of the Mini Ruckus - a unique course created just for the little ones.
“The people of New England have spoken and we have delivered”
“The people of New England have spoken and we have delivered,” said Ruckus co-founder Liam Brenner. “We are excited to reveal an all new course that is sure to exceed the expectations of Ruckus race experts and novices alike.”
Not only is Ruckus revolutionizing its Boston race this fall, it’s also breaking new ground in the industry as a whole. While the world of obstacle racing can be a muddy one, Ruckus is quickly finding its niche as the choice event for refreshing family fun - a far cry from the typical obstacle racing atmosphere. The Ruckus appeals to more than just groups of adults; it encourages families of all sizes and ages to come out to participate in the event at every level.
“While we have created a challenging but achievable course for all, we’ve also created an atmosphere that welcomes all,” said Brenner. “Whether you’re powering through the 5k course, getting muddy on the Mini, or simply watching a loved one compete, the sense of pride and accomplishment is sky-high across the board and people want to share in that experience with their friends and family. We have seen moms and dads competing alongside their siblings, while preschoolers are giving it all they have at the Mini-Ruckus and teens and even grandparents are competing in the 5k. That’s what the Ruckus is all about.”
The novel Ruckus event also includes newly designed medals and t-shirts for all participants, a Champions Heat and prizes for elite challengers, plenty of food, cold beverages and music for a lively family friendly atmosphere that is sure to please. Registration is now open at $65 per participant for the 5k course and $20 for the Mini. Early registration is strongly recommended as walk-ups may or may not be available on race day.
