KC TIMBER CHALLENGE 5k OCR

Kansas City's only locally produced obstacle challenge course. Test yourself and YOUR TEAM OF WARRIORS by getting WILD with the SQUATCH.

Spring Family Timber Challenge! (FTC) – Your Family will LOVE it!

Welcome to the Spring Family fun run event at the KC Timber Challenge course or FTC for short. Over the last year we have seen hundreds of families out watching and we figured it was only fair to let the little Squatch’s in on the fun!

The Spring Family Timber Challenge (FTC) has been expanded to 2+ miles and is packed with fun and challenging obstacles for the whole family. We do recommend this course is for children 5 and up who have the ability to grip and climb obstacles for maximum fun and safety.

This one of a kind muddy obstacle course featuring 10 more obstacles than last season and new segments of the course. The newly expanded FTC now features over 20 obstacles and all the must haves of an adult course.

What's with the Sasquatch

Our property is located in the rolling back wood bluffs of the Kansas River. We get asked all the time if this is where Sasquatch, Yeti or Bigfoot live. Of course the answer is yes. We have had quite a few sightings and enlisted him as our Mascot.

Beware the “Squatch” for we are letting him loose on the street of Kansas City to motivate you to, “Unleash Your Inner Beast”!

Volunteer Opportunities

Join the Timber Challenge Team! Volunteers are a vital part of the team from check-in to coaching individual obstacles. Ideal volunteer candidates are energetic motivators who love the outdoors and fitness as much as we do.

WHY? All volunteers get to come out the course and play/test our obstacles in advance of the event. We will also have a post event team run and or BBQ for staff and volunteers with an after party.
