Dalton-based StrongHouse Productions presents the 2013 Junkyard Dog CrossFit Discernment Urban Challenge on Saturday, January 26, featuring a 5K-Plus race and eight challenging, yet fun urban obstacles, with a distinctly southern flare. For those who register by 1/1/13, the cost will be $65 for individuals; $240 for four-person groups and $60 for members of the military, fire and police departments. All participants will receive a T-shirt and medal. The challenging, yet fun-for-all race will begin at 8 a.m. Waves of runners will be scheduled to start every 15 minutes. The last racers will depart at 3:45 p.m.
Created for individuals and four-person teams, the race will take participants of all skill levels through a concrete jungle featuring eight challenges incorporating kettle bells, tires and sandbags all with a unique southern-flare. (Look for the occasional old clunker on concrete blocks!)
The Junkyard Dog event starts at the Super Body Fitness Center at 701 South Hamilton Street in downtown Dalton, located off I-75 at the Walnut Street Exit. From I-75, follow the signs to Downtown Dalton, located just one hour from north Atlanta and 30 minutes from Chattanooga.
