Blue One Challenge
Horseneck Beach Race Experience:
Slightly shorter than a combined 10k, this multi-dimensional fitness challenge will offer a variety of terrain experiences.
You'll have the benefit of pavement for the first 1.75 miles. During this eastbound leg of the race from the Beach and through the Campgrounds you will be faced with two barriers to get over and one to get under. (15 second penalty, per barrier, for failure or omission).
The 2nd leg of the race takes you off of the pavement and onto the trails and soft sand as you round picturesque Gooseberry Island.
You'll rejoin the pavement exiting the Island and make your way on E. Beach Rd. heading back into the Campground. We wouldn't want you to think we'd send you back the way you came, so at this point we will divert you towards the sea! Here you will enter the 'Rockpile' approx. 500 yards of Hurricane deposited loose gravel that will rattle your teeth and test your will to continue!
If you make it off the rockpile we'll let you stretch your legs as we lead you back down W. Beach Rd.
This flat level paved stretch will be the last you experience before you hit the soft sand.
Once on the sand you will have between 800-1200yds of intense soft sand work, there will be calisthenics and YES, You'll be Getting Wet!
We won't have you swimming - But, we weren't going to bring you all the way to the Beach and not let you experience the legendary surf of Horseneck Beach!
A soft sand sprint to the finish will afford you the opportunity to run up and 'Ring The Bell' and join the ranks of those who can proudly call themselves -
You'll receive your finishers prize and be welcomed by support staff into our Post Race Pavilion where you will be treated like the Champions You Are!
