About the Challenge

fitathlete – A fit person who participates in fitathlon events that test their strength, endurance, athleticism and mental toughness.

You’ve heard of a triathlon – Run, Bike and Swim. You’ve heard of a decathlon – 10 track and field events. Welcome to a new sport called Fitathlon.A Fitathlon is a fitness challenge that tests your strength, endurance, athleticism and mental toughness. Fitahlon’s challenges have 15-20 obstacles that take place over a 5k or 10k distance. The obstacles include but are not limited to:
fitathlon challenge fitathlon challenge fitathlon challenge fitathlon challenge

Speed and agility



Balance & core strength

Fitathlons are for everyone – Beginners, who are looking to have fun and enjoy the obstacles and serious athletes, looking to capture the purse. We divide the participants up so you participate with other fitathletes who share similar goals. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie, beginner, challenger, or competitor you’re bound to have a great experience and be challenged like never before.A fitathlon is not a Tough Mudder or Spartan Race or any other event that includes mud, fire, water or electrocution!!!! None of that stuff. While we do have obstacles the comparison ends there. Your heart rate will get up and stay up the entire race. Your legs will feel like jello and you will be exhausted when you finish but you’ll be thrilled with your accomplishment. There are limited lines and minimal waiting.Our events are local and community based. We donate a portion of the proceeds from each event to a local charity and attempt to use local business for support services whenever possible. We are a green company that is socially responsible.

I’ve never really done anything like this. I’m doing this for entertainment and really don’t care about my finish time. I just want to challenge myself and have a good time with my friends and the other competitors.


I’m not serious about competing but enjoy a challenge. Obstacle races are new to me but seem like something I’d enjoy. I work out on a regular basis but I’m not as serious as some of the people in the gym. I’ve taken boot camp classes.


I’m in good shape. I like a challenge. I exercise on a regular basis and I consider myself fit. I can run a 5k and I lift weights regularly. I enjoy boot camp classes.


I’m in great shape and I believe I can complete the course without walking. I have completed other obstacle type events (Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, Rugged Maniac) and have done well. Bring it on. I’m up for the challenge. Show me the money!
