What’s the Scoop?
On September 10, 2016, runners will arrive in the morning at Falling Springs Park (directions can be found here). 12 giant inflatable obstacles will be on display, greeting participants as they enter the course. The first obstacle, Game On, will give you an introductory warm-up into the second, The Cliffhanger, where you will climb 3 stories up and down. When you think you’ve had enough, wait until you move through the I’m Tired, this is what you’ll probably be feeling afterward. After all you’ve been through, why not do it all over again in the one giant obstacle called The Beast. Here, you’ll tumble, run, jump, and leap through and hopefully without falling! Before we spoil the rest for you, we’ll just let you wait and see when you get there! All of these exciting obstacles are waiting to be discovered and have a laugh or two with your friends!
