Xtreme Obstacle Challenge

Xtereme Obstacle Challenge is a new race series to hit the scene!  Are you looking for bragging rights without the mud?  Xtreme Obstacle Challenge is a 5K with over 20 obstacles sure to be an endurance run to remember!


Do I have your interest peaked yet?  That’s right a no mud obstacle course race.  For blind as a bat people like me this is a small blessing.  I obviously can’t wear my glasses during an obstacle run.  Mud gets all in my contacts and just hurts.  I guess I could always sport my goggles, but honestly vanity gets in the way of that.  I am also a girly girl at heart and do not like to get dirty Finding mud in places two days after a mud run (even though you know you scrubbed every inch of your body at least 10 times) really sucks!

Some Xtreme Obstacles include the Dizzy Lizzy (A fast moving treadmill followed by a quickly rotating spiral turntable a runner must cross to make it to the elevated finish line), Dazed & Confused (A maze with no apparent end) and The Logger (Suspended logs that will challenge your balance and fear of heights).  All will test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit. Xtreme Obstacle Challenge is guaranteed to push you out of your comfort zone.



Are you wondering what kind of race bling you get?  I know I love some race bling!  I wear my T’s proudly and hang my metals in the gym to remind me of why I am doing the 1-10-1 pyramid burpee session.
