Course Description:

The full course is a 5K race in which you will two rounds of the course. The course itself has 12 obstacles that you will need to cross, then a final obstacle at the finish which makes 25 total obstacles! If you meet an obstacle you either can’t or do not wish to cross there will be a “skip penalty” defined at each location in the form of burpees, push-ups, etc. So one way or the other you are going to get dirty and be tired when you finish this race.
The Fun Run will be a single trip through the course with some additional aids at the obstacles to make the course less physically challenging.
We will also have a “Kiddie Course” for children 10 and under. This is free and your children must be supervised at all times. We will run the Kiddie race about every 30 minutes

Aid Stations:

There will be two first aid stations on the property. We will also have two water stations on the course. Food and music will be available at the finish.


No awards here, you are competing against yourself.


Spectators are free and we do have a spectator trail that spans the entire course.


Parking will be at Catawba Valley Community College and we will be running shuttle buses every 10 minutes. No charge for parking or the shuttle.


We will have semi-private changing tents available to get out of those wet muddy clothes. Plastic trash bags come in handy to toss your dirty clothes in.
We will have some nice COLD water from a garden hose on site for rinsing.
We will provide a bag check tag in your race packet. We will have a secure location at the race site to keep your belongings while you race. We will not store bags for spectators.
Some of our obstacles require a relatively high level of strength or agility to complete. If you feel you may not be able to navigate through an obstacle you will need to enter either the Fun Run or Beginner heats where you may simply go around the obstacle.
We are sorry, but we do not give refunds. Participants unable to participate may pick up their runner packet. Or they may have someone else pick up their packet for them. Under some circumstances, registration may be transferable.
Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Otherwise, we expect the parents to use their discretion as to whether their children can participate or not.
The time limit for all heats is two hours. Walkers are welcome.
We will not provide any child care. We will have a play area for kids 10 and under where parents may supervise their children
