In advance of Saturday's event, the Ford Center is giving participants of the inaugural Arena Challenge a sneak peek at what to expect during the unique fitness challenge.

As seen in the video below, the course will take runners through every nook and corner of the Ford Center including areas not normally accessible to the general public during events such as concerts and Evansville Icemen home games. Runners will have to navigate over 1,000 steps, as well as obstacles such as tires and rope nets spread out along the three mile course.

Those not interested in participating can watch the event free of charge from the spectator seats inside the arena. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Check-in and late registration will begin at 9:00 AM at the Ford Center this Saturday, with the first wave beginning at 11:00 AM.  Registration and more information is available at
