“To the Max” 2K Obstacle Challenge

The "To the Max" Obstacle Challenge is a youth and family 2K course (approximately 1.25 miles), highlighted by approximately 15 obstacles! This event is for ages 5+ and is hosted in the fall. We provide a large spectator area (approximately 80% of course visible from this area) for this chip-timed event. During the inaugural race in 2018, we had 154 registered participants.

All race participants will receive a t-shirt and participation medal. All racers will be timed. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 competitors in each of the competitive age groups. Race fees are staggered based on registration date.
