Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay to be a spectator?
No spectators are encouraged! Come out and cheer on the runners as they take off to challenge the course then return to the finish line in victory.
Where do I pick up Packet/How long is packet pick up?
Packet pickup before the race will be announced. Packets may also be picked up on race day
How old must I be to participate?
14 years old is our minimum. Unfortunately, anyone under 14 will not be able to run the race for insurance/liability reasons.
How early should I arrive?
We encourage arriving one hour before your start time. You choose your start time when you register.
What should I bring to the race?
Whatever you need! You will be wet and muddy so carrying iPhone, MP3, iPads is not recommended. You will be crawling around, so carrying car keys also may not be a good idea! 5Khaos will have a bag check area so you do not have to worry about personal items.
What do I do if I cannot complete an obstacle?
20 Burpees. No one is going to be there counting your burpees so we are trusting that you will do them, or as many as you can. Think of it as a motivator to complete all the obstacles because no one likes burpees. However, if you are in the competitive heat you must complete all of the obstacles.
Do I have to be an elite athlete to complete 5Khaos?
No! You just have to possess a desire to have FUN and get DIRTY!
How will you time me?
Race bibs have a disposable timing chip on them. No need to worry about losing the chip or forgetting to turn it in. Times will be compiled throughout the day.
How do I clean up post-race?
There is an area with hoses and water for clean-up. Port-a-Pottys available.
