The EPD SWAT Challenge is a fun, challenging 5K run with obstacles like walls, tires and climbing up a parking structure with a sandbag anywhere from 15-20 fun obstacles.
This event takes place on Saturday August 15, 2020, in Downtown Evansville.

 Packet Pick is on Friday, August 14 from 12-5pm at the lobby of Old National Bank downtown on Main St. 

There are 17 waves starting at 8am to the last wave at 12 noon, to spread out the participants over the 15 or more obstacles.
