Well this might be one of the coolest things to happen in Hartford since we still had Whalers games to go to.

The world’s craziest 5k is coming to Hartford this summer. Saturday August 9th, 2014 at Rentschler Field and they have just opened registration!

If you are not familiar with what the ROC Race 5K, it is about bringing fun to life and is the original game show-inspired obstacle run which you may or may not have seen before.

There will be 12 larger-than-life obstacles including the infamous Wrecking Ball, World’s Largest Inflatable Water Slide, Jump Balls and Cool Runnings, and the biggest obstacle ever done, the Sweeper. It is an un-timed event open to everyone, from couch potatoes to track stars, ages 13 and up!
