Pole Position is a teamwork obstacle that requires a good amount of upper body strength to complete solo. It's like trying to pull yourself up and over the side of a swimming pool without a ladder. With Pole Position you'll first have to pull yourself up and onto a 5' tall platform. This is where the teamwork comes in. If you can't make it up on your own, ask a fellow runner to give you a boost. Once you make it to the top of the platform the fun part begins. Ever wanted to slide down a firefighter's pole? Now's your chance! Reach out and grab the pole and slide on down to continue with the race!
Mind The Gap is our newest inflatable obstacle and it'll test your upper-body strength, balance, and nerves. As you approach this mountain of awesome, you'll see two steep walls you'll have to conquer in order to reach the summit. Once you climb up the first 6' wall, you'll have to leap over a 4' deep trench and cling onto the handholds on the second wall! Don't fall in or you'll have to exit the side of the obstacle and continue the course. Once you reach the top, jump, roll, or slide down the backside to continue.
Off The Rails is our take on a zip line but with more of a challenge and a watery end. Zip lines are easy and go downhill. Off The Rails requires you to use momentum to slide uphill far enough to ring a bell at the far end. This will really test your running speed, grip strength, and coordination. Get a running start, grab the hanging rope, and try to make it over a pool of water all the way to the bell at the end. Slap the bell and fall into the water to complete this one.
Full Tilt could be our most challenging obstacle to date! It's a monkey bar crossing with a twist... or tilt. You'll first have to work your way up an 8' inclined ladder, which is pretty difficult by itself. But we've made it even more challenging by making the ladder pivot downward as you pass the mid-point. Although going downhill is easier, you'll first have to survive the jolt of the ladder moving into place. Hold on tight and don't start moving until the ladder is in place. Complete the second half by working your way down to the far side.
Sled Dog is a total body challenge that'll test your arms, shoulders, back, core, and legs! As you approach, you'll see a rope on the ground connected to a 50lb sled about 30' away. Grab it and pull the sled all the way to you, then jump over to the opposite side of it, grab the short rope on the back, and drag it all the way back to where it started. After completing Sled Dog, you'll have a new appreciation for our four-legged friend in the Great White North!
