None of the obstacles are meant to be dangerous or purposefully painful. A good exercise program in preparation for the race is encouraged. The entire event has been coordinated and built by Gaylord Hospital volunteers and profits will support Gaylord's Sports Association for disabled athletes, some of whom will also participate.
