Course Description:

That can do attitude? Bring it. You'll need it on this course. This race is meant to test you - that's a promise and a guarantee. Be prepared for a race beyond your wildest dreams. If it were easy, it wouldn't be a Barbarian Challenge.
This race isn't just for anyone. It's for the brave, the strong, the fierce. For those who train harder than they play. No, this isn't your grandmother's 5k. It requires dedication to get through some pretty insane obstacles that stand between you and greatness.
Many show up with winning on their minds, and that's just the way we like it. Run your toughest trails, jump over your highest obstacles, and don't be afraid to get a little dirty. The course is made for true Barbarians, remember?

Aid Stations:

If you’re actually a namby pamby that needs water, there will be three tables with water along the course. However, you will lose style points if you have to stop and take a drink. We’re just saying….


The top finishers in each age division will win an awesome custom medal, as well as second and third places will receive a different, but equally awesome custom medal. The overall female and male winner (from the 8:00 horde only) will receive the coveted “Conan The Barbarian” Sword engraved with authentic runes protecting the bearer from evil. Second place overall female and male will receive a custom made metal Barbarian helmet. Third place overall female and male will receive a custom made Barbarian shield. The top male, female and co-ed teams will win 8 identical custom awards for their top 8 members. Everyone else gets a badass medal to prove they’re a true barbarian!
Only the 8:00, 8:20, and 8:40am hordes qualify for awards


There will be parking at the event and carpooling is highly encouraged! You can park at Noccalula Falls Park main entry or by the Wedding Chapel. You may also park across the road at the church or school and we will shuttle you to the battle field.

Post Party:

We’ll have food and beer beginning 30 minutes after the first horde runs and ending at approximately 2 hour after the last horde storms the course. Awards will be given out approximately 12:00 noon to 1pm.


You must be 12 years old on or before the day of the Challenge is the cutoff. Anyone under 18 must have their parent or guardian present to sign the form in person.
No wheeled conveyances or pets of any kind are allowed on the course, including (but not limited to) dogs, cats, mice, parrots, ferrets, gerbils, snakes or lizards. You can bring your stroller into the spectator area, but no pets please!
We provide chip timing
IF there is water that is deeper than 5 feet, we provide an alternate route for non-swimmers, or a rope to hold onto to pull yourself across.
While there are risks involved in every sporting event, we take your safety seriously and do everything we can to make this a relatively safe event. But, remember this isn’t your grandmother’s 5K and if it was easy, it wouldn’t be a Barbarian Challenge. We’ll have an ambulance with Emergency Medical Technicians on site just in case.
