Three Obstacle Challenges await you on the course!!

Ropes Challenge:  This challenge consists of a very easy challenge that almost anyone can do.  It’s fun exciting and unique.

Brain Teaser or Experiential Challenge:  This could be a riddle or a group exercise that requires team work and gets you involved with other participants.  This is always a surprise and anyone can complete it.

Strength Challenge:  There are multiple levels of strength challenges.  Most consist of carrying an object through a small obstacle course. Different levels of this challenge can be completed with lighter weights for kids or beginners, or with heavy weights for those that want an extra challenge.

Check the FAQ tab for more information.

Is there an age minimum to participate?

Yes, participants must be at least 12 years old to race the course. Ages 12 to 18 can participate only when running with an adult entered in the race, and will need to show proof of age. Ages 18 and beyond do not have any limitations to their entry; they will simply need to show an ID to confirm their entry.

Is the event a timed race?

No – however, there will be numbers given to each runner in order to determine prizes for top 3 finishers of each gender. NiteRun events are intended to be a fun way of building up physical strength and agility as well as mental creativity and stimulation. You are welcome to bring your own timers and time yourself. We will be starting our live music and other celebratory activities at a given time regardless of whether or not all the runners have completed the course.

What is included in my registration?

We give you your very own headlamp to guide you through the night. Upon checking in with your photo ID, you will receive your headlamp, a t-shirt, and a race number. We will send out a reminder email to all our registered participants as we get closer to the event. Be sure to Like Us on Facebook so you can keep up with the latest news on event preparation.

What exactly am I expected to do in this race?

Run (or walk) the 5K course and when you come upon one of our Challenges, complete it! Even if you cannot do the Challenge well, giving it your best effort is what will allow you to continue on through the course.

Can I bring my pet to the event?

No, I’m sorry we do not allow pets at our events.

What about Late Registration?

Registration will be available on the day of the event if you did not pre-register. Please see event details for times. Please note that the entry fee is lower for participants who register ahead of time, and t-shirts are not guaranteed for late registration. We recommend registering early to reserve your space and get the best deal! 

What do I need to wear to the event?

Closed-toed shoes that you can run in and an outfit that is easy to run and climb in. Because we are running at night, we also recommend bringing something to keep you warm like legwarmers, sweatpants, a beanie, or light sweater.

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

Yes, but this must be done in advance by filling out a transfer waiver. Contact info@niterun.com for waiver information.
