- 5 Miles
- Course Description:
- Crumland Farms has its share or rolling hills to really get those legs burning. The course is designed to truly challenge you and your team. You will face 25 of the most diverse and challenging obstacles in the industry as you make your way through mud, sweat, and tired burning muscles.
- The Tower - Is it harder to climb a vertical rope or one at a loose 45° angle? No matter, the manhole straight above your head will beat them both. Then to top it off, lowering yourself onto a cargo net from the second story will test any remaining stabilizers as well as your control of mental capacities.
- ¼ Pipe - We would never leave out the opportunity to face a quarter pipe, but why not toss in a few extra walls on the back side to make sure you are sufficiently tested?
- The Jungle - Nothing breaks the knuckles, makes the shoulders scream, and wakes up those lats like having to swing from across lines of free hanging rope and chain intermixed. Don't take our word for it; let's see what you've got.
- The Sobriety Test - As if it wasn't enough to carry a 7 foot pipe (one that is too big to grip and weighs…well, we'll let you find out) at shoulder height, this one is partially full of water! Your core will be begging for mercy as you try to walk this straight line!
- Gladiator - Who will you face on the pedestal? Late in the game, you are both tired, but the sooner you finish, the sooner your Siege Party begins. Whoever falls first must stay to battle again!
- The Barricade - Yes, anti-tank barriers are daunting, but a web of them is sheer madness. Climb, jump, crawl, and dodge your way through the barricade without being torched.
- The Walls - There is an unspoken requirement of any true Siege, to face a wall. We will make sure that need is sufficiently satisfied. High walls, mid-walls, and hole-in-the-walls will all be taunting you to find the quitter. A conqueror lets nothing stand in their way!
- Pyramids - Your eyes will argue that these pyramids don't stack up to the Egypt's pyramids, but your legs will beg to differ!
- Ain't no Monkey Bar - This is no playground. There are no bars. With every peg at a different height your eyes, hands, shoulders, arms, and especially mind must be working with synchronized precision in order to pass the test. Many will lose the coveted """"redpoint"""" when they realize that these """"Ain't no Monkey bars.""""
- The Sloth - You may start on top, but it won't last long. You will find soon that 30 feet of slippery pipes that won't stop spinning seems more like 100 feet and that you wish you would have paid more attention to the sloth at the zoo. There's not one muscle in your body that won't be begging for relief by the end of """"The Sloth.""""
- Balance beams - Your balance may be good, but once your major muscle groups have reached their volitional failure and your stabilizers must take over, it may be a different story. That would be if these were simple balance beams…This is not the case! Not many will walk off of the beams.
- Reamed! - It is all about the transition. """"Reamed"""" is one of the reasons why training events are so crucial. Moving from pole to log, while inverted, on an ascent is one for the emperors among us.
- Crawlers - What would an obstacle race be without getting down and dirty? You may have noticed how an ice bath doesn't seem to clean off the mud from crawling under barbed wire. Rather, it just tests your mental grit and will to continue… especially when you see another set coming!
- Caterpillar - We guarantee that you, from the day you Lay Siege, will never see a caterpillar moving without thinking about how you could have crossed that gap between hanging tubes. This obstacle is not for the weak of core.
- Heavy Hurdles - How will you pass the heavy hurdles when your legs are too tired to jump, your arms to weary to pull, and your resolve starting to weaken? Did we mention the reason they are heavy is not because of how tired you are; it is because you may not drop the baton (and this is no ordinary baton)!
- Climbs - Tires, ropes, chains, and cargo nets… The Siege Race may be a 5 mile race, but that doesn't include the distances you will be in a pure vertical ascent…and they will not be few! The climbs present a unique challenge to our competitors – your body may give up before your mind does. How deeply can you dig? We want to see the exhilaration on your face when you realize that you had so much more in you than you thought possible. The climbs will prove it.
- The Crevice - There are many techniques to cross The Crevice. Some try a chimney move, others the spider press, and others a crab walk, but only with strength, coordination, and stamina added to a successful technique will you come out dry!
- More - Every wave of attack will face these obstacles and so much more – to include tire runs, heavy drags, bag carries, mud holes, and more. LET NOTHING STAND IN YOUR WAY and you will come out conqueror.

What is the best way to prepare for The Siege Race? That is one of the greatest things about The Siege Race! We offer training events that you can come to several weeks before the actual race and test out obstacles, build your confidence up and get an awesome workout while doing it. That way when race day comes you are pumped up and ready to Let Nothing Stand in Your Way!
Wear something that you are comfortable in and won't mind getting dirty because there will be no shortage of mud to crawl, climb, and wade through on the course.
One of the things we pride ourselves here at The Siege Race is that we know anyone can overcome obstacles in their life. Whether they be physical, mental, or emotional we know with the right help and mindset you can ""Let Nothing Stand in Your Way.""
