Teams of two or more will dash around the city, racing against other Challengers for immortal glory (and cash prizes!) as they solve tricky clues, strategize the best route, and explore undiscovered corners of the city.Think of it like a 5K that tests your brains as much as your legs, with bigger prizes and a whole lot more fun–we guarantee you’ll have a blast! Visit Facebook page here.

  • An amazing, active way to get outdoors on a Sunday and explore your city with friends and family in San Jose!
  • Don’t worry—fitness is a plus, but you’ll need a blend of smarts AND speed to win this race!
  • At the finish line, we’ll welcome you back with cash prizes for our winners, cold water for all, food and drink specials from our venue, finishing with our our crazy costume contest and awards ceremony!
  • Take it to the next level: the top 50 teams from this race will qualify for our Challenge Championship event at the end of the season in Las Vegas–with a grand prize of $5,000 at stake!

ROCKIN’ JUMP, San Jose CA

ROCKIN’ JUMP

Ashlie S. from Watsonville on yelp said “Went here for the first time today and brought 5 kids ages 2 1/2-16 and everyone had a blast!! Amber the manager, roped off a special space for the little ones so they wouldn’t get trampled, which as a mom, I totally appreciated! The other Staff members were friendly and on top of all safety issues. You can tell it is a well run
gym. My 7 year old loved the foam pits, which he got to flip into. It was even fun for the adults. Highly recommend this place for an afternoon of fun. Amber told us that on Fridays after 9 PM they have disco lights and a DJ and are open until midnight! We will definitely be doing future birthday parties here. Reasonably priced and so fun. :)”
