Course Description:

The 3-mile course will take you through terrain and obstacles for adventurers of all skill levels, testing the beast in all of us. We designed the course to be run at your pace and each obstacle to be conquered by anyone willing to take it on. Fast, Slow, Easy, Hard…Decide for yourself or with your teammates.
Mud Crawl - Get low and get muddy. Did you really think you woudn't have to do this?
Cargo Nets - Up and over these nets suspended between trees. It is both beautiful and daunting.
Tire Run - It's a classic and yet somehow it still trips you up. Must be the heavy legs from running up and down hills for three miles...
Spider Web - Criss crossing between a clump of trees, this parachord web may not seem like much. But don't underestimate the toll of simple frustrastion on mental and physical fatigue.
Wall Climb - Simple doesn't always mean easy. Get over these walls with little or no foot holds. Get there first before they're covered in mud.
Tire Flip - Use every major muscle group to flip these giant tires. It's okay to borrow a friend's major muscle groups as well...
Hill Climb - This should put the final touches on the lactic acid build up in your legs. Okay fine. We'll give you a rope for assistance.
Tight Rope - Two options exist here. Walk across one rope, using your hands on a second for balance. Or, make the traverse using only one thick rope.
Tire Wall - This wall of tires, suspended between trees is easy enough to climb, but getting over the top can be a bit of a head trp.
Monkey Bars - Another play ground classic, except covered in mud by all the other kids.
Sandbag Carry - It might be a sand bag, it might be a car batery, we don't know yet. But it will be heavy and you won't like carrying it.
Tube Crawl - Have a fear of small, dark places? Yeah, us too. That's why this tube is one-part hard and nine-parts ""Get me the heck out of here!""
Beach Run - The finish line is in sight, all that stands between you and ice cold, high quality H2O is seventy yards of 6-inch deep sand. Sorry, not sorry.
