Do It Like a Dude

It’s a man’s world, right? So why not man up and take the opportunity to prove how rugged and brawny you are? No, we don’t mean letting out a few jarring belches and giving your undercarriage a scratch. We mean a full on test of toughness – sweat, muscles, and determination included.

Men and women alike have a chance to let out some testosterone during The Man-Test: an obstacle-filled 5K designed to challenge even the buffest of beefcakes. Participants will dare to traverse Tempe Town Lake, climb a variety of obstacles, adventure through a maze, and outsmart a memory quiz. Female participants will be encouraged to steal “man cards” from their male rivals, and prizes will be given for the most collected at the close of the race. The event doesn’t end there. After proving their strength, participants will celebrate at the after-party with drinks, music, and more prizes. Proceeds will benefit the National Breast Cancer Coalition and the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center.
