ABOUT THE COURSE
All of the obstacle stations on the EPIC Course have Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced options, so every Athlete can challenge themselves at their own ability level. There is NO MUD, NO ELECTRIC SHOCKS, and NO LONG-DISTANCE RUNNING (we hear you cheering on the inside)!
There is also NO PENALTY for choosing to modify or skip an obstacle.
The obstacles are a combination of FUNctional fitness challenges and traditional obstacles, plus a couple extra EPIC things thrown in for good measure. You’ll notice most of the obstacles are color coded:
GREEN = BEGINNER
BLUE = INTERMEDIATE
BLACK = ADVANCED
Here’s a small sample of just some of the EPIC obstacles you’ll experience out on the course! The EPIC Glow in the Dark Party fun run course will not be timed, so feel free to conquer at your own pace!
Grab a light-up rally baton start out with a quick lap around the perimeter of the course to get warmed up and preview the obstacles you’re about to conquer!
Work those balance skills and get across stepping only on the vertical pegs. Falling off requires a dramatic enactment of falling into hot lava before you start over and try again.
Put your archery skills to the test with foam-tipped arrows (so you don’t shoot your eye out) and actual marksman bows! Hit the target and you’re on your way to the next challenge!
Let your inner kid come out to play with these nostalgic and incredibly fun, inflatable hopping balls! We know you’ll want to stay at this obstacle station because it’s so awesome, but hop to the cone and back and then let the next kid have their turn!
It’s just like a rope ladder!
Bounce your way across at 65-foot obstacle course that finishes with a giant slide!
Pull a keg up approximately 12 feet using a rope and pulley. Kegs will be empty for this course, so no need to worry about kegs being too heavy!
Don’t let the gargantuan size of this obstacle scare you! Climb up the 10ft wall using the rock climbing holds, with more holds available for the Beginners and less holds available for the Advanced. Do your best victorious Rocky pose at the top and then make your way down the giant stairs to move on.
And more! Plus some other fun, exclusive surprises!
