Fargo's premier mud run & obstacle course 2014

Saturday, June 14, 2014

HARD CHARGE is coming back to the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in Fargo! A new course and obstacles await to challenge every fitness level. The event is again benefitting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at Sanford Children's Hospital.


Race for a personal best and the chance to be on TV in the CHARGE for Glory heats, starting at 8:30 a.m. Space is limited so sign up early to secure your spot. Or take 'er easy in the CHARGE for Fun heats, kicking off at 10 a.m. New this year, kids ages 5 and up can CHARGE for Fun too! Don't want all the mud but still want to help out? Volunteer and be on our CHARGE Crew.


HARD CHARGE events are 4-5 miles of obstacles, mud and mayhem. Each course is designed to challenge every fitness level and get you pumped up for the awesome post-race party at CHARGER Village - complete with food, fun and one free beer for CHARGERS 21+. When the dust has settled and the mud has dried, you'll already be looking forward to taking on your next HARD CHARGE mission!

Charge for Fun!

It's time to put it all out there. Give it everything you've got and compete on TV on a timed and marshaled HARD CHARGE course. Awards will be given to the top 5 male and female finishers in each age division. Best of all, CHARGE for Glory heats are smaller for minimal congestion and wait times at obstacles.


Charge for Fun!

Fire up for a fun and intense HARD CHARGE course. Tackle it on your own or build a team of your best buds and have a blast helping each other complete the mission together. These heats aren't timed and no worries if you can't make it through an obstacle - there are plenty more waiting to be conquered!
