R.O.M.E. is a cultural experience that incorporates modern day Mud Running Obstacle Adventures.
R.O.M.E . is for the whole family! Whether you're running or watching, R.O.M.E. has everything for the first timer or the most advanced athlete. Remember, this event experience is like no other!
At this event we will be introducing the world's first Tethered Team Run Obstacle Event.
Besides our 5K Adult Course (more equals better in this case), we have designed a course for children 8 years old and under (separate equals safer). This course is free to run and will entertain children while providing them their own R.O.M.E. adventures.
R.O.M.E. will take you back in time, watch as Gladiators compete in the arena against Barbarians and immerse yourself in the Roman history. See all R.O.M.E. has to offer from the vantage point of a 60 foot boom that can lift you over the track, what memories R.O.M.E. will create for you, your family, and friends!
We will be serving food and drinks and holding a costume contest, so don't forget to come dressed as a Roman, Barbarian, Mongol or any other culture existing during the 1000 year reign of the Roman empire.
