What is the GAC?

Gladiator Assault Challenge is the Midwest’s premier test of endurance, speed, agility, strength, mental stamina and your ability to withstand a crazy party afterward. The Gladiator Assault Challenge obstacle course is a series of challenging physical obstacles an individual or team must navigate. The 5 - 7 mile course will challenge you with running, climbing, jumping, crawling and balancing elements with the aim of testing overall endurance. All registered participants will receive a free Gladiator tee shirt, leather cuff, a free beer and admission into the pre and post parties where there will be live rockin’ music, DJ, grilled food, and lots of beer!
