Thousands Crash and Splash at WIPEOUT-Run

WIPEOUT-Run” left Wilmington’s Riverfront soaking wet on Saturday, as some 5,000 5K racers slogged and smashed their way through a giant obstacle course that was inspired by the hit TV show. Trying to prove they had what it takes, people teamed up with friends and had the time of their lives navigating the Wrecking Balls, Smash Wall, Tumble Tubes and The Drop obstacles — 10 obstacles in all. While many participants were from Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey, the first to finish was Delaware’s own Dusty Rhoads, of Bear. “The course was incredibly challenging but also a ton of fun,” he said. Rumor had it that a few top finishers would be given the opportunity to appear on the actual ABC television show.  A portion of the Wilmington WIPEOUT-Runregistration fees will be given to the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
