Rookie is all about fun and comradery. It is the shortest distance with the easiest obstacles. You will be crawling, climbing and jumping your way through the course – running is not even required! The Rookie race is a great opportunity to challenge your friends and colleagues to try something out of the ordinary – and a little bit muddy. Although the main focus is on obstacles that are fun, we have thrown in one or two that will challenge you mentally and physically.

You can participate in the Standard Rookie race as a solo participant or in a team of up to 8 people. The “standard” Rookie category, whether you are in a team or a solo participant, allows you to skip an obstacle if you cannot/don’t want to do it (there is a burpee penalty if you do this).
For those with a competitive side, the Elite category requires individuals to race against one another to win prizes from our sponsors. All obstacles have to be completed in order to not be disqualified. No teams or assistance with other participants is allowed.
