Blackout is the 3rd race of the 2018 War-X Race Campaign. Haven’t you ever heard “There’s nothing out there at night that isn’t there in the day”? That may be true elsewhere, but not at War-X Blackout. We own the night! Will you cast fear aside and take on this challenging course as the sun dips below the trees. If you are ready to earn that campaign medal, you will.

Oh yea did we mention this obstacle course is in the middle of a war zone? Can you focus on the tasks at hand while explosions and gunfire are going off nearby? While a war rages all around you, you’ll battle unforgiving obstacles, heroic challenges, dense smoke screens, propaganda, air raid sirens, and explosions. There’s no doubt you’ll have an extraordinary, adrenaline-filled experience unlike any other race out there. Experience the intensity and adrenaline of War-X racing!

We are constantly developing, changing, and building new and unique obstacles to push your limits. The course is built across over 1100 acres of privately owned, undeveloped land, giving us the ability to operate all year round. There are no limits to the size and scope of the obstacles we build because we don’t have to move them! The War-X property has over 25 miles of trails, sheer rock cliffs, acres of swamps, mud, winding creeks, dense forests, and unlimited elevation gains to play with in southeastern Ohio!

Attack the course individually or as a team! If you love obstacle course racing and want an exhilarating experience unlike any other, be sure to register today for Blackout! First wave starts at 8pm.
