So......What exactly is the Urban Raid? Here's what their website has to say:
"Introducing a new, cutting-edge race series designed for a new breed of cross training athlete – The RAID. Come experience the next generation of obstacle racing; one that features varied terrain, large-scale customized infrastructure, and extraordinary venues that range from picturesque beaches, to energized downtown metros, to breath-taking mountain sides. The RAID offers you the chance to choose one or conquer all three races in distinct environments – a unique challenge that no other series can provide. For just under five miles in distance at each race course, you’ll be challenged to run, crawl, jump, climb, and scramble on sand, city streets and steep slopes. Our immense constructed obstacles are designed to test your strength, agility and fortitude, while keeping you safe and injury free. We want you to cross that finish line exhausted and ecstatic, with your friends and family cheering you on. And we want you to celebrate your accomplishment by joining your fellow athletes and fans at the post-race party, complete with recovery stations, sponsor booths, music, food, and beer!
RAID Events are open to men and women of all fitness levels over the age of 16 who desire a new challenge. Whether you’re a seasoned triathlete or runner seeking the next big thing, a weekend warrior bored with the gym, or a first time racer you are encouraged to toe the starting line. We think that you’ll be amazed by what you discover in your journey to the finish."
