2019 OBSTACLES-Scroll DOWN to see photos-some variation may apply
The 250 yard dash will include the "I'm at a PayFoam booth", Tube Crawl, the tire hop, Stairway to Heaven Straw Climb, the Moon Walk & the SA Moreland Muddy Madness Mud Pit, of course!
The 1 mile course will have all of the above, plus 3-4 additional safe, sturdy & well-constructed obstacles, with several adult assistants at each obstacle and along the trail. All will end in the giant mud pit, built just for kids!
NEW FOR 2019!!! A NEW OBSTACLE THANKS TO A GENEROUS GRANT FROM THE MORTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION!!
#1: Foam Booth - run through the mounds of foam soap!
# 1A: We have the "Moon Walk" inflatable obstacle- sure to defy gravity!
#2: The Tire Hop - kids will have to use their jumping skills to hop in and out of several tires!
#3: The Worm & Snake Crawl - a series of VERY large pipes that kids will have to crawl through.
#4: Mt. Everest Wall Climb - Try out our Morton-style K2 - a wall with hand holds (& adults to help out) to climb up & over
#5: Stairway to Heaven Pyramid - Several bales of straw stacked in a stair step; kids will have to step all the way up & all the way down;
#6: King Tut's Pyramid Climb - scale a small angled wood structure using ropes to get up and over and on to the mud pit!
#7: The Giant Mud Pit - the biggest mud hole you've ever seen, using sifted dirt (no rocks); the little kids will have to run from one end to the other; the older kids will have to crawl under the flags/tape then off to the finish line!
FYI- Our younger (2-6) runners will have their very own "Mini" mud pit!
#8: The 40ac Woods - Run .5 of a mile into the woods and loop around, up, and down before heading out to the field of obstacles. While in the woods, kids will conquer the Knotty Hill Climb (with ropes to assist), as well as the Gorilla Hill Climb (ropes to assist). (Note: There will be volunteers stationed along the wooded route area every few hundred feet and at least 2 volunteers at the obstacle. There will be approximately an 8' wide running path that will go in one direction only. There will be what we like to call a "gumdrop path" for any child that does not want to run all the way or part-way into the woods).
#9 Finally we have the "Kid Wash" spraying water to get everyone clean clean clean!
