Let the Wild Rumpus start! Not your ordinary race—come out and challenge yourself to an obstacle-filled course set in the wooded trails of the JCC’s Family Park. Jump through tires and over them, scale a wall, cross a creek, shoot a bow and arrow and more. Includes an adult 5K distance course and a kid’s 1K course. Bring the entire family! All participants receive a shirt and a crown for finishing. (Pre-registration by August 31 ensures a shirt the day of the race).
