A Challenge From the Master Himself...

Ok...calling all my Warriors, Wild Animals, and battle tested Killers. Get ready for the competition of your life!. The first annual Philadelphia Metrodash. Here's the deal...

The Race:
Competitors will receive a list of challenge points in their race bags at packet pick-up. While it varies by city, Metro Dash competitors are typically confronted with 5-7 challenge points during the course of the race. All but one challenge point will be listed; the last is revealed seconds before the start of the race. We do this to keep you honest! There is no pre-set course, which means you determine the order in which you'll run to, and conquer, each challenge - just be sure to hit each one!

There are three competition categories...

■Tabata Challenge – Tabata is an interval training cycle of 20 seconds of maximum effort followed by 10 seconds of rest. You repeat this 8 times for a total of 4 minutes. You will do as many reps possible of the stated exercise during the 20 seconds, anything less and you've failed yourself.

■Stair Climb – You'll run up and down the equivalent of a 15-story office building. Depending on the city you may have to carry a 10lb weight with you.

■The Gauntlet - This is our extreme urban obstacle course where you'll flip tractor tires, low crawl, and launch yourself over an 8 foot wall.

There are only 200 slots and they are going fast.

Who among you shall attend?
