Although increasing in popularity, adventure runs — fraught with danger and staffed by emergency crews — are not for the faint of heart.
The first annual race, which takes place "rain or shine" on Oct. 27, will benefit the Houston Police Foundation, a nonprofit chaired by Fertitta and supported by other local business leaders. Funds from registration ($60 until Oct. 13 and $70 until race day) will go to purchase Tactical Medical Kits and training for the HPD.
The 12-heat race will feature nearly 20 "muddy, wet and explosive" obstacles including tire walls, cargo nets, hurdles and trenches. The course covers 3.1 miles along the bayou at Tony Marron Park — and those who survive the grueling race will be treated to cold Shock Top beer, authentic barbecue and live music at the finish line.
