Registration for the 2nd Annual Tupperpalooza Warrior Run opens Wednesday, May 1st at 12 p.m. Scheduled for Saturday, August 3rd at Big Tupper Ski Area, The Tupperpalooza Warrior Run is a challenging 3.5 mile race made up of a mix of intense obstacles, treacherous mountain terrain and lots of mud. Participants can compete individually or as a team of four.
With nearly 200 athletes participating in the very successful 2012 inaugural run, the 2013 Tupperpalooza Warrior Run is guaranteed not to disappoint. The race committee is already at work planning a longer and tougher course with new obstacles and most definitely more mud. There will also be a children’s course for children 13 and under.
“Obstacle races are really growing in popularity” states Tupper Lake Events Coordinator, Michelle Clement. “It’s exciting to be able to grow a race that is not only a great experience for the athletes, but is also an event that draws a strong visitor base to the Tupper Lake community.”
Also new this year, the race will feature ChronoTrack timing provided by FastFishes.net. ChronoTrack provides timing solutions for many of the largest races in the country. All Tupperpalooza Warrior Run participants will receive timing chips at registration. This will not only provide extremely accurate race results, but will also allow for less congestion on the race course as athletes start in race waves. “We can now keep track of just how tough our warriors really are” says Clement.
The Warrior Run is presented by the Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce and is the official kick off of “Tupperpalooza,” a week long festival in TupperLake celebrating the spirit of the Adirondack summer. Tupperpalooza runs August 3-10, 2013.
