Uff Da Challenge

Saturday 18th of May
Hartz Park Thief River Falls

The Uff Da Challenge is a Scandinavian-themed obstacle course race sure to have Thor himself saying, "Uff Da!"

Winding through the heart of Thief River Falls, you'll climb high walls and ropes, crawl under and over obstacles, swing, wade/swim (water level permitting!), and run your way to the finish line!

The course will be 3-4 miles and you can expect to see these types of obstacles:

-Climbing Walls, Ropes, and Cargo Nets
-Cold Water Tanks and Uncomfortable Crawls
-Monkey Bars and Rope Bridges
-Balance Beams, Log Vaults, and Jumping Targets
-Sandbag Carries and Boulder Rolls
-River Crossing (Depending on water level!)

Some obstacles will require assistance/teamwork to complete. If you cannot complete an obstacle or you touch the "hot lava", you may bypass the obstacle after a small burpee penalty. The challenge is for everyone, so don't let the fear of not being able to do something stop you! This is an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and see what you can do!

There are Recreational, Team, Elite, and Youth heats (Youth Course is a separate ~1 mile course) and finishers receive a post-race snack, adult beverage (+21 only), and sweet swag. Check out the Group registration option and build your team with a custom team page and link!

Challenge other teams for Uff Da bragging rights and prizes for Best Costume! Fire vs. Police? Football vs. Wrestling? Teachers vs. Students? Unite your clan and charge to victory!

Elite Heat racers vy for Thor's Uff Da Trophy!

Register soon to take advantage of Early Bird discounts!
***Prices increase April 1st and May 1st!

Businesses and other organizations inquire about advertising/sponsorship opportunities and block discounts.

It all goes down May 18th, so grab your friends and hang on for a wild ride!
