Plenty of obstacles at tomorrow's Men's Health Urbanathlon


Didn’t make it to last week’s marathon?
Don't sweat it — you’ll get another chance to sweat at tomorrow’s Men’s Health Urbanathlon.
The 10.8-mile course is part endurance run and part obstacle course with police barricades, marine hurdles, and cargo nets draped over buses standing between you and the finish line.
Along the way, you’ll also pull your best Matt Forte as you race up the aisles at Soldier Field while closing the race with a 40-yard dash that would make Devin Hester proud.
The course winds along the lakefront north to Navy Pier and south to 31st Street. (Last year’s winner finished the race in just 59 minutes.)
And, since no trip to Soldier Field would be complete without a tailgate, the race concludes with an on-site festival of DJs, stadium food, and Miller beer.
Only 11 obstacles separating you from glory. Sounds a lot like a certain football team we know of...
