Welcome to GO BRO.
The Race you go to DIE. The Race you go to SUFFER.
This isn't easy and it's not meant to be.
The 5k has SIX Challenge Stations and the Half-Marathon has THIRTEEN, the last of these stations takes place so close to the finish-line you can smell the steaks.
Contrary to many events these days, you must complete each Challenge Station to move on to the next, if you do not complete each Challenge Station, you do not receive your Steak, Medal, or Finishers Shirt.
