Finish Line Festival immediately following as finishers cross the line.

We have the biggest ropes course in NY as our venue this year, so your family should prepare to have a blast while they wait for you with an array ranging from zip lining, pendulum tires, cargo nets, and rock climbing walls.

Where do I go once I've arrived at the venue? 

Shuttle buses will park at the entrance by the lower horseshoe parking. Upon entry into venue, please proceed uphill to the WAIVER Tents. Volunteers and spectators - please follow signs for the appropriate waiver tent. If you are lost, follow appropriate signage or look for a yellow EVENT STAFF shirt for assistance.

After signing waivers, all athletes will proceed to the Registration/Race Packets station located in the START corridor. 

What do I wear?

Non-restrictive, form-fitting clothing made of lightweight synthetic material that won’t weigh you down when wet. Head band, scrunchies, hair ties, XC sneakers, gloves, socks, etc.

Bring a change of clothes. There will be mud and water. Hope to not fall into either - however, you will most likely  get wet and sweaty.

Leave the sunglasses at home; they’re usually the first casualty on the obstacle course, with iPods, wallets, and car keys a close second.

Train in your race clothing to make sure it is comfortable.

Visit the PREPARE page for additional information.

Can my family and friends see me on the obstacle course?

We want your fans to get as close to the action as possible. Due to the nature of paintball, spectators are not permitted, but can watch from safe distances. Most obstacles allow spectators to move along the obstacle course by following designated paths so that they can cheer for their family and friends and get some great action photos.

Designated spectator paths are outlined for safe spectating.

To ensure the safety and unobstructed movement of spectators and participants of the HFC and HKR, spectators must remain within the designated paths.

What if it rains? 

The Hercules Fitness Challenge and the Hercules Kids Race are rain or shine events.
