WHAT IS THE JUMP CITY CHALLENGE?

Like we said, this is the greatest race in the city. We are going to be sending you on a course that does not just take you to the cities coolest features, but on a course that actually takes you through them, over them but never around them. Well, that's the simple definition of it all because we literally jam pack the route with action for you.

There is a difference between the 7km and 10km though. The 7km is just a fun run with no obstacles on the way, the 10km is littered with exciting challenges for all levels of athletes.

This race allows you to see the city in a way that no other race does. It is for fun loving adventure seekers, in fact it is for everybody because this is your city and it is your right to explore it.

CHALLENGES ON THE 6,5KM ROUTE

The route will play host to over 30 obstacles throughout. You will need to climb, crawl and even find your way through the dark at

one point as you make your way back to Mad Giant at the Sheds. All obstacles are achievable by all levels of athletes as we

don't set out to hurt you, just thrill you. We have some of our featured obstacles listed below, please scroll down for more

on featured obstacles.

 

See you out there tough stuff, it is going to be a blast!

                                                       

                                                                                             

 

                                                                                                        THE ROUTE

 

Kindly check back in January to see the route and features along the way.

 

Before we get started on this, let's just get something straight, there is no way that

we can visually illustrate all the twists and turns on route. No GPS or step counter

can do this either, believe us we have tried for 6 years.

The truth is that our race director gets very excited about finding interesting ways through the city.

So what you don't see here is all the adventure, all the turns through and into buildings, climbs

up the outside of buildings and sections inside the museums.

 

We have JMPD's fittest and finest supporting us on route and directing

traffic where need be. Your safety is our first priority, we have you covered

 

LIMITED ENTRIES

 

Due to the incredible complexity of the route and where we send you the team has to take precautions to avoid annoying bottle necks, in the interest of this this category of the race is limited to 900 athletes. Heads up, the race sells out, so be sure to register early.
