One Day Only
May 29, 2022

Tough as Nails Urban Challenge offers athletes a chance to explore the hidden parts of downtown Wheeling. The 6 mile run course winds its way up, down and through the city streets of Wheeling, WV. This event will take place on Sunday, May 29, 2022.

Across more than six miles of body-breaking urban terrain you will traverse abandon cars, scale flood walls, climb your way over obstacles and claw your way up impossible inclines, all on your way to a triumphant finish! After working to destroy your body, stick around for the after party that includes food, drinks and live music.
