What is a Run and Gun Race?
The Run and Gun Race®, is a mission inspired obstacle course race requiring shooters and athletes to overcome physical obstacles as well as shooting obstacles… and in some cases both at the same time.
It’s a Biathlon for the Badass, and a thrilling new way to experience obstacle course racing.
Race participants are issued an M4 Professional Training Rifle, a military simulation airsoft rifle built to mimic the real thing in weight, handling, and firing characteristics, while providing a safe experience for shooters of all skill levels (or no skill at all). Athletes are familiarized with their weapon, taught basic safety, movement and firing techniques, and then set loose into an intense obstacle course environment.
As racers move through the 5 kilometer course they will be confronted with exciting firing problems, reactive targets, challenging military style obstacles, and rugged terrain. Athletes will be timed and their scores based on both speed and accuracy.
That means the athletes final time is based on the time it takes to maneuver through the course with time-penalties added based upon the number of rounds expended to hit every target.
If you’ve never shot before – don’t worry! We have will have experts on site to teach you the basics, and a staff of range safeties to make sure you have a thrilling race and a safe shooting experience.
Created by members of the military elite, this “short” 5K course will challenge obstacle course racers, airsofters and shooters alike. Space is limited… register early to ensure you get to earn your tags and enjoy the post-race festivities!
