Race Information

Tackle the course at your own pace. Run, walk, or stampede. It’s up to you. This is a race for individuals; each obstacle is designed to be completed by individual runners. However, you are welcome to pace yourself so you can run with your friends or family. Each participant must be registered.

The marked course features a variety of terrain (gravel driveways, open fields, and wooded areas) and obstacles throughout Maple Ridge Center, a run up the tubing hill, rope swing, stump hop, inflatable hurdle, balance beam stream crossing, and much more. The course begins and ends at the end of the maple-lined driveway, near the Warming Barn.
