How different is it from a fun run or marathon?

The TrueNorth Guerilla Race® Series is not just any “trail run” or “fun run” with a twist. It is, first and foremost, a race. It presents you with the opportunity to tackle on the obstacles and rank well, not only against your competitors, but against your own self. The TrueNorth Guerilla Race® Series is meant to unlock your true capacity for strength, endurance, resilience, and overall achievement.

While everyone is welcome to participate in each of the races, not everyone may have the heart to complete the Ultimate Guerilla Race®.
