What is Race Street?

Race Street Athletics was founded as a way to enhance community and utilize physical fitness as a way to empower people. We believe that there is an athlete in everybody. The Race Street Open is built to push people to their limits and put their fitness to the test. Created by former professional athletes and operated by a full-scale creative agency, the Open is the perfect combination of competition and creativity.

We believe that this, sprinkled with a good challenge and topped with community, is the recipe for a premium fitness event.

Designed to be a full experience for both participants and spectators alike, the Race Street Open showcases the unique terrain of each event location.

Participants will face a number of circuit-based cardiovascular and strength exercises. From sandpit bear crawls to lakeside dam climbs and beyond, the possibilities are as endless as the competition is challenging. A champion will be crowned in both the men's and women's divisions.

Better Together

The individual competition is the same as always. Finish the circuit as fast as you can. And for the second time, Race Street Athletics is bringing back team relays taking place after the individual competition. Team Relays will all go as part of one event level.

In similar fashion to a track relay, each team member will be required to complete each part of the course, one at a time, until all four members have crossed the finish line. All teams are co-ed and require two men and two women.
