HERCULES FITNESS CHALLENGE
The Hercules Fitness Challenge is a run through the Not-So-Enchanted Forest and across diverse terrain, with 28 challenging obstacles, including PAINT BALL!
The Hercules Fitness Challenge offers three categories of difficulty: beginner, intermediate and advanced, so this race appeals to obstacle course racing beginners as well as the seasoned athlete.
The overall course comprises a 5K Run and 28 obstacles of varying difficulty within “12 Labors” or sections. The entry corridor for each obstacle is color-coded to the category of difficulty. orange for beginners, red for intermediates, black for advanced.
For those superheroes who want more after they cross the finish line, feel free to run it again, no extra fee for additional fun and exhaustion!
Our intention for the beginner category of difficulty is to encourage people to try something they may not have envisioned themselves doing, to safely challenge these newcomers to obstacle course racing and to design a race course that promotes a sense of accomplishment. Encouragement, safety, achievement and fun is the formula for this category!
Racers in the intermediate category may have experienced an obstacle course race before, or are avid fitness enthusiasts who have endured various tests of strength and endurance in their sport or personal exercise world. Our intention is to not only challenge you to dig a little deeper then you may have before, but to see you complete the obstacles that once eluded you and finish the course with a bigger goal then when you started.
Crossing the finish line by way of the advanced category demands these racers to reach for something inside of themselves that requires more then raw strength and more then a great deal of physical endurance. This category of racer will keep digging inward, no matter the elements, no matter the pain. Suffering to these racers is not the challenge, it's the little voice that repeatedly tells them to quit, for they know that is not an option.
Register your 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12 year old for our first Hercules Kids Race. This venue is sure to be the hit of the day for the young Herculeans and their cheering parents!
Learning from our last Hercules Kids Race, this race will feature different heats for each age group. They will climb, crawl, wiggle, jump, slide and go over, under, across and through a battlefield of super fun and exciting obstacles. Who wins at the end? Everyone! They’ll be showing off their finisher medal at the first day of school.
The HKR course will present a variety of challenges. Some obstacles will accommodate both age groups, while others will be modified and have separately marked entrance corridors dividing the two groups to ensure appropriate difficulty for that age group.
4-6 years old - 1/2 mile
