Dark Ages

This was my first highlander assault dark ages, and it was awesome! I was able to do two laps. The obstacles were clearly marked, no lines, volunteers were very nice and helpful and it was really cool to do an OCR at night! I can't wait to do it again next year!

Great event

Great event, well marked trails, volunteers throughout the race, nice bonfire and food truck aftwards. this is my 4th event with Highlander every one keeps getting better! Can't wait for the Highlander Assault !


Great OCR

Great local obstacle course race. Well put together. Organized. Top notch obstacles by Race Ready Obstacles. Challenging obstacles, mixed with easy, mixed with not so challenging.

I ran the elite wave at the end of the night. The only issue at that time was with the timing system.The race was kept track of for podium spot (prize) winners.


Great fun

Very well put together, no waiting on the obstacles, great idea of racing in the dark. I had a concern that I was going to go of course at times, but everything was marked well, had no issues. Obstacles were a little on the easy side. Great looking finishers medal!


Haven't missed a Dark Ages race and don't plan to. Always enjoy the "Night Life" put on my the Highlander Assault family. Looking forward to the "daytime" one come October. Come on out, you won't be dissappointed!

OCR in the dark!! One of a kind! Love this event! Amazing community of people that come together. The terrain is just the right amount of challenge and surprise. The placement of obstacles is very well thought-out. Looking forward to running this race again and again. Don’t think twice, try it and I guarantee you’ll be hooked!


Fantastic OCR Event!

3rd Dark Ages race I've done and each year has been a great and well organized event! Super fun. A super well laid out course with excellent and numerous obstacles. A total blast start to finish. Challenging and enjoyable! These guys know how to put together a fantastic race event!


Oustanding!

Such an outstanding event! Taking place at night gives a whole new spin on an OCR race. Drove in from Kansas City to experience this. Great obstacles, great atmosphere and bagpipes! Do it!


Top Class

What a great event! From the servicemen that organise it to the sponsors that sponsor it. The obstacles are challenging. There are several heats for all ages and levels. It has a great atmosphere and I look forward to the Highlander Assault in October. I wouldnt miss these events for anything.
