CHARGING Iowa - HARD CHARGE Des Moines Opens
DES MOINES, Iowa (Feb. 27, 2013) — HARD CHARGE will unleash its televised obstacle running series on Des Moines Aug. 24, 3013 at Living History Farms. Registration is open to everyone at HardCharge.com/des-moines. Several local sponsors and charities are teaming up with HARD CHARGE for the inaugural community event.
HARD CHARGE Des Moines features four and a half miles of unpredictable terrain and more than 20 challenging obstacles such as Abusement Park, Gritty Ridge, Scale the Skins and Will Hill. An intense, challenging and fun event for all fitness levels, the obstacle mission consists of two primary heats: CHARGE for Fun and CHARGE for Glory. CHARGE for Fun participants are out to achieve the ultimate sense of accomplishment. They may take on the course at their own pace and choose to eliminate tougher obstacles. CHARGE for Glory heats are timed and marshaled, with top individuals and teams qualifying for the final, Televised CHARGE held later in the day.
Beginning in June 2013, HARD CHARGE televised series will be syndicated on networks around the country. The show focuses on the world’s fastest-growing adventure sport and the everyday competitors who qualify for the televised heat. Each episode highlights their journeys and personal stories as they work towards competing in a race testing their courage, strength and stamina.
HARD CHARGE Des Moines kicks off at 9 a.m. with the CHARGE for Glory heats, followed by CHARGE for Fun heats at 11 a.m. The Televised CHARGE begins at 3 p.m. HARD CHARGE Des Moines also features a post-race party with music, food and beverages, located at CHARGER Village inside the park. Spectators are encouraged to watch the CHARGE and attend the post-race party; both events are open to non-participants, free of charge.
Registration is now open and runs through Aug. 21, 2013. Early registration pricing, valid through Apr. 24, is $56 for the CHARGE for Fun event and $76 for the CHARGE for Glory event.
