URBAN RAID OBSTACLE RACE TOUCHES DOWN IN THE EMPIRE STATE!
THE ONE OF A KIND 5K COURSE WILL TAKE RACERS PAST NUMEROUS DOWNTOWN ALBANY LANDMARKS INCLUDING THE CAPITOL BUILDING, THE TIMES UNION CENTER AND LINCOLN PARK!
The spectacular downtown course will take racers past some of Albany’s most iconic landmarks including Empire State Plaza, the Capital Building, the Governor’s Mansion and more.
By the time they reach the finish line, racers will have completed more than ten custom built obstacles constructed along the course, including one directly inside the Times Union Center.
Event organizers, Aura360 Ventures, have been working closely with Albany city officials to create a course route that showcases the best of the Capitol while having minimal impact on both traffic and pedestrians. Post Race the Urban RAID After Party will kick into high gear with music, refreshments and sampling from event sponsors.

Camp Sunshine provides respite, support, joy and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their immediate families throughout various stages of a child’s illness. The Family Reach Foundation provides financial relief and heartfelt support to families fighting cancer.
