Get fired up Wichita…The HARD CHARGE is approaching and it not’s going to be easy. Mud, sweat and perhaps even blood are likely in store for anyone who decides to take part in one of Wichita’s most intense races ever.
The HARD CHARGE is a four-mile race on unpredictable terrain at the grounds of the Kansas Coliseum in Park City, just north of Wichita. Runners must overcome more than 20 challenging obstacles that will have them balancing, climbing, crawling, running, and of course… getting covered in mud, all while using every muscle in their body.

Don’t let the intensity of the course frighten you. HARD CHARGE is meant to be a fun event for people of all fitness levels. Although challenging, it will test you and push you to the max.
The event consists of two primary heats: CHARGE for Fun and CHARGE for Glory. CHARGE for Fun (Beginners), is the heat for those looking to just have fun, without worrying about overcoming tough obstacles or competing for best times. CHARGE for Glory (Experts), is the heat for those ‘in it, to win it’. This heat will be timed and marshaled, with top individuals and teams qualifying for the final race, which will be a televised CHARGE held later in the day.
