“The variety of people I see come to this challenge amazes me every year, every one was encouraging, making one another laugh anything to get us through the course.
Alisha McKinney, Fanci Fitness
“TWC has some great minds working behind the scenes to bring their vision of a world-class obstacle-race to life.  They’ve been there and raced that, and they’ve used that experience to create their ideal race.  They’ve combined running and fitness in a way that levels the playing field between the crazy runners and fitness freaks, but also made it accessible to someone looking to have fun while staying or getting active.”
“Although very fun, this event was not near as easy as I thought it would be.  It was more like a bootcamp class spread out across 5 kilometers.  Several of the stations were designed and manned by a local crossfit gym and another by the U.S. Army but we survived to do it again.  I highly recommend this event to everyone.  Next time, I will make sure to stay the night in Louisville and cool down at 4th Street Live afterwards.”
Kevin Jones, Crazy Mudder Mucker
“The organization that puts on The Waterfront Challenge really goes above and beyond to make the participants feel special no matter what level of fitness or runner your at.”
