The Big Obstacle Challenge is an opportunity for healthy fun for the entire family! Participants conquering the Challenge course will complete 10 obstacles before crossing the finish line. Fitness enthusiasts looking to test their strength can register for the Ultimate Challenge, where 18 obstacles stand between you and the bragging rights of a conqueror! Can’t complete the obstacle? Give us 10 jumping jacks on the Challenge course (make that 10 burpees for the Ultimate course) before proceeding to the next obstacle.
Spectators can enjoy our Fan Experience Zone with games, community resources and local vendors while watching our participants take on the challenge! Individual and team participation are both welcome. Participants that register by midnight on Friday, September 13 will receive a $5 discount and an event t-shirt. Race Packets can be picked up Friday, September 20 from 5-7 PM at The Corner House Café at Summers Corner. Start times for the Ultimate Course will run every 10 minutes from 8:00-9:00 AM and the Challenge Course will run from 9:10 - 11:00 AM. Participants typically complete the course within 15-30 minutes.
The event will raise funds for the Foundation’s Innovation Awards. In four years, we have awarded 36 grants for a total of $122,780 to fund learning opportunities across Dorchester District Two classrooms. Last year’s event sold out, so pledge your sponsorship by Friday, August 30 to be a part of the celebration of health and wellness that unites our entire school district & community!
