A Chance to Celebrate Resilience

As a collective, we’ve built our resilience muscles up quite a bit over the last few years – and we’re taking the time to celebrate it with some fun. We can do hard things, and what better way to celebrate Fall in Minnesota, than with an outdoor adventure race!

18 Fun & Challenging Obstacles

Never scary, the obstacles are fun and will challenge your teamwork. Featured are balance and strength tests, bear crawls, climb-overs, games, puzzles, riddles, and a resilience test to find your matching race number required to proceed to the finish. 

1 Buddy Pair Starts at a Time

We start a new pair every 20 seconds to spread hundreds of pairs over several hours of racing. This approach allows us to have a big race without the crowding of a big event. Spreading out the racers creates a nice and easy flow from check-in to start, through the course/obstacles, to the finish line, and medals. You'll choose a start session at registration, and we’ll guide it from there. 

Connection + Community

We are proud to welcome Chance York, our Integrative Health & Wellness team from George Wellbeing, and 9 Mile Brewing Company as our partners in Connection + Community! Chance York, a certified mindfulness instructor, yogi, rapper, and TV Host of Outside Chance, will guide each pair through a slow-down-to-speed-up challenge.  Our George Wellbeing practitioners will be on site with a few wellbeing services and surprises.

After Party

Connection will continue after the race with our beverage sponsor, 9 Mile Brewing, at their taproom with $1 off all beverages, there will be food trucks and giveaways! 

So whether you’re having a Camp reunion, work outing, challenging workout, or date night, they’ve got you covered.

Everyone's times will vary - we encourage you to experience it at a pace that will uplift and challenge you! The average time to complete the course is as follows:

  • Runners: 30 to 40 Minutes
  • Hikers: 40 to 60 Minutes
