5K & 10K Featuring Obstacles and 5 Shooting Stages
The Gunfighter Run and Gun 5K is back in 2023. We listened to the input and AAR’s from the attendees from last year’s race and have made some changes based on that feedback. We’re working closely with some members of the Run n’ Gun community to make sure this race is score correctly and fairly.
That being said, this is Battle Springs… we like things to be tough.
So, this year you can expect the game to be upped. There will be a special “Hero” class that will not only include the new scoring rules – you will HAVE to complete all of the obstacles to finish. The normal racers can take a time penalty for obstacles that aren’t completed, the Hero class is all or none. Also, there will be a 10k for the guys that want a second lap.
There will be more details coming about the obstacles and the details of our scoring system (know that both time AND accuracy will matter).
Our goal is for the Gunfighter Run n Gun to be one of the “can’t miss” races of the year – so get in while there are still spots available.
Oh Yeah, almost forgot: there WILL be a rope climb :)
Target engagements will be between the ranges of 7 to 400 yards. Competitors may use any small arms rifle/pistol combination. Red dots, LPVOs, 5×25 optics, whatever..we dont care and you shouldn’t either. What matters is how you employ your weapons systems, getting your hits and moving under stress.

- 50 x pistol rounds
- 120 x rifle rounds
- Shoes/boots (No tactical crocks)
- Hearing protection
- Eye protection
- Water (carried on person)
