PORTLAND, Maine, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RAID Events LLC, owners of the RAID Series of Obstacle Races, announced today that Urban RAID, the city based race circuit of the Series, will become the first ever obstacle race to be staged on the streets of Boston.  The event will take place on Saturday, July 27 th in the heart of the vibrant and historic downtown area.

Urban RAID Boston will challenge participants with a unique course that weaves throughout downtown Boston. Starting in City Hall Plaza, racers will wind around Government Center before a circuit through the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Racers will find themselves back at City Hall for the signature finish in the middle of the Plaza. Post Race the RAID Series Festival kicks into high gear with music, refreshments and sampling from event sponsors. 

By the time they reach the finish line, racers will have completed more than ten custom built obstacles constructed along the 3.1 mile course.  Event organizers, Aura360, have been working closely with city officials to create a course route that showcases the best of Boston while having minimal impact on both traffic and pedestrians.

"Together, we've come a long way in making Boston a healthier more active city," Mayor Menino said. "Events like Urban RAID Boston promote health and fitness in a fun, positive way and allow participants to experience our city in a whole new way. I'm excited for them to join us this summer on City Hall Plaza."

Founded in 2011, The RAID Series is expanding to multiple new markets in 2013.  The RAID Series offers participants unprecedented access to unique Urban, Beach and Mountain environments.  Catering to cross training athletes, fitness enthusiasts and recreational runners, the RAID Series has focused on the racer experience and athletic performance, resulting in a groundswell of excitement in the racing community.
