Monster Hydro Stadium Blitz — the gamified obstacle course race presented by NFL star Rob Gronkowski, Gronk Nation and Monster Energy — today announced the tour will return to Sun Devil Stadium at Arizona State University on Feb. 20, 2021.  

When we launched Stadium Blitz in October 2019 in Buffalo and Tampa, we quickly knew it was an unrivaled competitive experience for fitness enthusiasts of all levels,” said Chris Gronkowski. The opportunity to chart your own course allows competitive racers, aspiring athletes and even families with children to all compete side-by-side in some of Americas favorite stadiums.” 

Monster Hydro Stadium Blitz is designed to make the fun and empowering experience of obstacle course racing available to athletes of any level and children as young as 7 years old. One of the only obstacle course races that allows participants to determine how hard they want to be tested, Monster Hydro Stadium Blitz allows racers to challenge themselves without intimidation or the threat of punishment through a gamified, choose-your-own-adventure race course. 

“ASU continues to host the most exciting events, and we are delighted to welcome back Stadium Blitz in 2021,” said Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, ASU vice president for cultural affairs. “The event earlier this year was an amazing experience for everyone involved, and we are so excited to be planning for another incredible race day on the field at Sun Devil Stadium.” 

Designed to test different areas of fitness from strength to agility, Monster Hydro Stadium Blitz features three levels of obstacles, each increasing in difficulty but intermixed throughout the course. A racer who completes an obstacle is rewarded with points — the harder the obstacle, the bigger the point potential. Racers can decide to skip an obstacle and forfeit the reward. Points are earned and tracked via special RFID-connected wristbands. Participants can compete as an individual or as a team. 

Race organizers are committed to a safe, clean and socially distant experience for participants and spectators, and they will work with local officials to ensure that Stadium Blitz meets local and state health regulations. 

Early-bird registration for a Stadium Blitz obstacle course race starts at just $40 for adults. Special pricing is offered for children, students and members of the military. Fans and supporters are also invited to join in the fun by cheering participants on from special seating areas inside the stands. 

This race will give individual racers and teams the chance to qualify for the 2021 National Championship Race at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, where registrants will compete to win a cash prize.
