Your Mission:

As a Hero, your goal will be to find a fortress and recover a coin. Along the way, cunning villains with water guns and large water cannons will try to prevent you from accomplishing your mission. Armed with courage and a water gun of your own, you will overcome great odds in an epic struggle to save the world!

Once your mission is accomplished and you get to the finish line, you will present your recovered coin to be awarded a finishing medal in the Hall of Justice.

Coming Prepared

Superheroes are always prepared! The following items are available during the registration process as additional purchases to insure our heroes can accomplish their mission.


Additional purchases will not be shipped. You can either claim them on the event day or pick them up at the Gear Up event prior to the race day. The Gear Up event is hosted by RoadRunner Sports and they have provided some great incentives for all heroes to attend:  RoadRunner Sports will be donating $1 to Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles for every hero that comes in to the Gear Up event to claim their additional purchases! They are also offering everyone $10 off any in-store purchase of $30 or more made during the Gear Up event!

Gear Up address: 25359 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, CA 90505

Gear Up Date/Time: August 12 (Fri) 3pm to 7pm

You must be registered to be admitted to the venue property. We are allowing spectators to also register online for only $10.

IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure to print out the registration confirmation emails and bring them with to to gain admittance on event day. This will insure that you and your Junior Hero(es) can embark on your adventure with no delays.

There will be three water gun refilling stations on the course plus one at the start line. There is no need to carry your own water, but you will need to utilize it wisely since the filling stations are located some distance apart.
