City Challenge Obstacle Race to take over Randall's Island this Sunday
Amny.com - 09/30/2014
Elvi Guzman was a big fan of outdoor obstacle races like Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash and the Spartan Race, but he didn't like throwing away his sneakers after every event.
So last year, he created the City Challenge Obstacle Race, a "clean" outdoor challenge that tests your endurance, strength and sense of adventure -- without leaving you a muddy mess afterward.
Those familiar with Tough Mudder and Spartan know the concept, but unlike the other guys the City Challenge Obstacle Race won't have you tossing your sneakers in the nearest dumpster after the race. The race will not have water, mud, electrocution, or fire - it's an urban obstacle course designed for the urban athlete.
