Course Description:

The Polar Rush course weaves through hilly terrain, with snow underfoot adding to the difficulty. Spreading you out on a 400m spiral of death helps minimize obstacle back-ups, while the 14 obstacles add fun and challenge to the course.

2. Web of lies (shock cord you have to navigate through the woods)
3. Tube slides
4. Wall climb (8 foot walls, rope or simple step options)
5. Rope Climb (pull yourself up a snow wall)
6. Crazy Carpet (slide away)
7. Polar Crawl (belly down!)
8. Snowy woods run (navigate the debris)
9. Polar-totters (teeter-totters!)
10. Tube Run (feature obstacle - carry your tube up the hill, fly down!)
11. Up n' down (4 foot walls, crawl)
12. Polar Plank (test your balance)
13. A-Frame (classic)
14. Monkey bars (made as easy as possible, harder with winter gloves!)
