Ruckus Sports is an obstacle race series, encouraging participants to get down in the dirt and up over walls to challenge themselves, all in the name of fun. Ruckus has named Farm Aid as their official charity partner in Kansas City for their August 6, 2011 race. Ruckus Kansas City will be held at the Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Missouri.
Registrants are encouraged to consider raising funds for Farm Aid with their Ruckus team. The top three fundraising teams will win a pair of VIP tickets to the Farm Aid concert on August 13 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park!
After completing the challenge, participants are invited to stay and “Raise a Ruckus” – celebrating their success and sharing stories about the obstacles amongst fellow participants or cheering on the top athletes in the Champions Heat while enjoying food, beverages and music. Kids can also compete in the mini-Ruckus, an obstacle course designed for the next generation of Ruckus athletes.
As Farm Aid’s official team captain, I am on the hunt for teammates! I encourage you to submit your ideas on Farm Aid’s Facebook page for who you think would make a great team member for us in Kansas City. We are limited to 20 participants for the official ‘Farm Aid team’, but I hope to see many more of you crawling through the mud with me.
Registration is now open. For a complete breakout of pricing, to see the obstacles and to register for Ruckus Kansas City, click here.
