Challengers Battle the Heat, Obstacles at the Medieval Rush

Posted: Updated:

Overcoming obstacles can certainly give you an adrenaline rush.

Some challengers at the fairgrounds in Bismarck definitely gave it their all at a 5K run, with around 20 obstacles to tackle.

Think this looks tough?

Well, these knights battling it out only serve as the entertainment at the Medieval Rush.

The real fight, will be for challengers hoping to make it to the finish line of the Medieval Rush race.

"It's crazy, all the people out here, there's life-sized beach balls over there so we don't know what's going to happen to us!" says Chelsea Munson and Jessica Gendreau/Bismarck.

As the first wave of runners gets ready, it's time to get pumped up.

Hundreds of people take on the course which includes running a 5K, and overcoming around 20 obstacles.

They include a mud pit that you have to climb out of, the 15 foot red wall, and did we mention the heat?

In around 45 minutes of running through the grueling gauntlet the leader of the pack of the first wave was nearing the finish line.

Announcers call him "Chad the one-shoe wonder" but anyone who finishes a course like this is a champion for a great cause.

"It's just something to get together, supporting a good cause, exercise is so great, so just something to train for, and have a good time with all your friends and family, who wouldn't want to do this, it's going to be so fun." says Munson.

Some of the proceeds from the event go to the Military Ovation.
