Course Description:

This is a CO-ED TEAM EVENT and you are required to have a total of 3 members (2 ladies/1 man or 2 men/1 lady). However, you can register as a ""single"" and we will do our best to put you with others looking to create a team :-).

Each member of the team will run 1 of 3 legs on the course, but prior to your start, ""we"" will decide which leg of the course you will run (1st, 2nd or 3rd). Each leg is approximately 2.2 miles in length. You will be required to carry a ""baton"" that you will hand off to the next team member. The last team member must cross the finish line with the baton in hand.

Shale Hill is famous for it's 10K military inspired obstacles and carry challenges. You will encounter nearly 70 obstacle efforts throughout the entire course. This is approximately *20-25 obstacles/challenges in 2.2 miles.* We have teeter totters, tire flips, hurdles, logs, walls, rope climbs, pond traverse, balances, sand bag/log/stone carries, barbwire crawls, monkey bars, tarzan swings, wall traverses, hills, SHALE, dirt and grass trails, etc.

EVERY obstacle is mandatory!!! You cannot come up to an obstacle and ""decide"" to skip it and do the penalty instead (this is a big NO NO in OCR!). You ""MUST"" attempt to complete the obstacle. If you fail while trying to complete the obstacle (i.e., fall off/trip/lose balance, let go of rope, slip, forget to do part of the obstacle, etc.), then you must perform ""ALL"" spiderman pushups assigned for that particular obstacle. Some of our obstacles you ""must"" do, no exceptions (wire crawls, ankle biters, hill climbs, all carries, tire flips), BUT, some of our climbing/wall obstacles are very challenging and the spiderman pushups range from 25 - 50 depending on which one you fail. All spiderman pushups must be done correctly and counted OUT-LOUD. You will be instructed on how to do a proper spiderman pushup at the briefing before your heat time.


TOP 3 WINNING TEAMS will be awarded great prizes from Sinergy Obstacle Race Equipment, Shale Hill & Icebug Footwear Merchandise Coupons, and gifts from our local sponsors IN THE OPEN, MASTERS & YOUTH DIVISIONS
