Ditch the pressure and run open wave! You can still push yourself if you want, you don’t have to walk, but there’s not a constant battle! Hildervat Open is perfect for all ages and fitness levels.

Hildervat Elite is for advanced athletes looking to take their experience to the next level.
Elite participants compete for age group awards and cash prizes. The Elite wave is always the first race heat of the day, starting with a fresh course, at 8:00 am. (Men: 8am, Women: 8:15am)


Pure Obstacle Challenge….do you ever wish you could just push yourself on the obstacles without all the running? Here’s your chance! Relay teams will get the chance to take on 4 of Hildervat’s toughest obstacles back to back to compete for the Relay Team prize money and all the glory! Here’s how it works…much like a swimming relay, the team will consist of 4 participants. Each participant will run 1 leg of the 4 obstacle relay course.  He/she will then swap the timing chip with their teammate waiting at the end of the leg.  Teammate #2 will then run the relay course in reverse, back toward the startline where teammate # 3 is waiting.  Swap the timing chip again, and he/she is off to run the 3rd leg of the race. Swap once more with the team anchor and he/she will take it home to the finish/start line. Each team member is required to complete all obstacles. Failure on any obstacle would require the athlete to repeat the obstacle as many times as necessary to successfully complete the obstacle. Each team member must complete all obstacles to receive prize money. The team with the fastest time, will receive $600, 2nd place will receive $400, and 3rd place will receive $200 in prize money. This is in addition to any prize money an individual participant in the Elite Heat may have already won. Heats for this event will begin at 10:00. 

Participants who participate in the full Hildervat individual race, will receive a 20% discount on the relay race registration.

Podium opportunity and awards paid to the top 3 men and women overall (Elite Wave only):
1st place – $500
2nd place – $250
3rd place – $150
Masters (age 40 and up)- $150  to the first place masters male and female

Relay Race

1st place team – $600
2nd place team – $400
3rd place team – $200

The winner of each Elite category heat will be determined by “gun time” or whoever crosses the finish line first, regardless of when they crossed the starting line. Taking into consideration any time penalties.

Team Awards – The Top 3 Teams in the Hildervat Elite heat are awarded medals. Each team’s score is calculated by adding up the three fastest finish times by that team’s members. All team members will be awarded a medal. Athletes MUST be present at the awards ceremony to receive their medals. We will not mail prizes/awards out after the race.

Awards will also be presented to the top three finishers (male and female) from the ELITE HEAT ONLY in the following age groups: 13-17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+

Based on participants age at the end of the calendar year. All age group and open heats will be determined by “chip time”.

HILDERVAT values our volunteers! We absolutely couldn’t have an event like this without you! To show our appreciation for your help and dedication, you will be able to race the HILDERVAT OCR course for FREE!

Volunteers help in every aspect of the race. Not only do we need you, but so do the racers! Volunteers encourage and support the athletes while making sure they stay safe and have as much fun as possible. We consider you part of the HILDERVAT team which is why in exchange for your volunteer time, you will be able to enjoy a free registration on race day.

What we need:

  • Build Day before: volunteers are needed to help with the build of the course. Because we are a beach race, we are on an extremely tight timeline to set up and break down. You all are invaluable to this process.  Volunteers would need to come to the venue the day before  the race and help build obstacles, set up the course and festival area.
  • Race Day: volunteers are needed to marshal obstacles, help direct the racers through the  course, encourage and add to the overall spirit of the race.  Logistically, sign up for the first or   last heat of the day and volunteer the rest of the time on obstacles.
  • Breakdown after the race: volunteers are needed to help break down the obstacles and load  the trailer.


Look for the volunteer tab on the registration sign-up page to indicate which role you would like to take on.
