The first place overall male and female Champions will be awarded the champion “Gauntlet” trophy and $300 cash. The second place male and female overall will receive $200 cash, and the third place male and female overall will receive $100 cash.

To receive the distinction of the overall 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place champion you must run in the first wave/start time of the day and complete every obstacle. If you fail an obstacle, you must begin that obstacle again. You may attempt the obstacle as many times as you’d like. Those competing for overall in the elite/competitive wave must wear a cloth belt which will be provided by Conquer The Gauntlet™ at the start line. If one chooses to move on from an obstacle, having never completed it successfully, they will turn their ‘belt’ into the obstacle attendant. All Podium Finishers are subject to a potential random drug test.


The Elite wave is always the first wave of the day and is set aside for those looking to run the race individually and complete all obstacles successfully and under the Elite Rules.  The Elite Wave is the only wave with finish times posted.  Those who complete all obstacles successfully will turn in their cloth belt at the Finish Line and be given the coveted CTG Elite Wrist Band.

The Elite Wave will have specific rules and regulations. You should not enter this wave if you are just looking to run early in the day. If you want to run early, simply sign up for the second wave, or another early morning wave time. However, if you would like to see your time posted online you will need to be in this wave.
