Texomans Tackle THOR Obstacle Run

Texomans Tackle THOR Obstacle Run

WICHITA FALLS, TX - Lucy Park in Wichita Falls was full of Texomans trying to prove their toughness for the THOR Obstacle Run.

"The event itself benefits Leadership Wichita Falls as well as Streams and Valleys here in Wichita Falls," Michael Boyle, Chairman of THOR said.

The nearly 5K race began in Lucy Park and took participants along the Wichita River, to the falls and through Camp Fillers before crossing the finish line back at Lucy Park. 

"I'm here today because I did it last year and it was such a great time I wanted to do it again," Lidia Garcia said.


Some braved the course in groups while others made it a race against themselves.    
"Running in boots and coveralls was not my best move,"  Dustin Smith said.

While many had a rough time with the part of the course that included a jump into an ice bath, they enjoyed the time they spent tackling the race with loved ones.

"My favorite part is just having a good time with my friends, having a group of them coming out and doing this," Garcia said.

One thing they can all say, they are tough enough.
