What’s The Rush?
Everyone wanted to be a firefighter when they were a kid — here’s your chance to be a hero for the day!
Race through a 3-5 mile course of heroic (and unique!) obstacles — slide, climb, get wet, get lost, get WETTER, make some saves and a ton more. We’ll surround you with our Inferno Midway with even more themed challenges, a great adventure (and educational) course for kids, awesome “experience” components — and all the food, drink and entertainment you love!
Do you have what it takes to be a Hero?
Hero Rush gives you the chance to put your mettle to the test. You’ll run an intense 3-5 mile race with multiple fire-related obstacles. Climb ladders and slide down poles, crawl through windows and break down doors, scramble through HAZMAT slime and locate trapped victims — but be careful — you might get the fire hoses turned on you! Don’t just play in the mud — be a Hero!
Once you’ve done the Rush, spend the day on the Inferno Midway with your friends and family, where everyone can practice their firefighter skills on more obstacles and themed challenges! Cool music, a great kid’s course, food and drinks and lots to see and do — get the full Hero Experience!
Party on the Inferno Midway where you can try out extra obstacles and firefighter-themed challenges, plus get access to multiple race viewing areas with a Not-Just-A Spectator Pass!
