Black Cat Road Race

Event Details


The 2013 Xtreme Urban 5k has been CANCELLED. We apologize and hope to have the event back for next year.


The Xtreme Urban 5k is a city run like NO other. You will hop, dodge, and crawl through the streets/parks of Salem going over fences, under obstacles, through tires, with one heck of a slanted wall to climb just before the finish line! If you are a "SERIOUS" Runner - leave your Garmin at home and enjoy the change!

This race is designed for the XTrEmE Adventurist looking for a challenge and one hell of a race course. This 5k is like no other city run you will ever do! Take on the challenge by yourself or on a four person team. More on Obstacles: Some of the obstacles will include fence climbs, a barb wire crawl, 12 ft slanted wall, beach run, rock climbs, low crawls, tires, through buses, water war zone, Junk Yard Alley, tire dive, color slide, and much more....
