KC TIMBER CHALLENGE 5k

Kansas City's only locally produced obstacle challenge course. Test yourself and YOUR TEAM OF WARRIORS by getting FROSTY at the YETI Jan 25th.

The 2014 season of events has been so fun that we could not imagine waiting till Spring to host another one. It may be cold outside in January but the Yeti don’t care.

The Yeti course will be like nothing you have ever experienced including lots of fire and ice obstacles. We have a massive cold storage freezer at a frosty -18 F and will be using forms to build ice blocks to use in our construction. Yeah, freakin ice walls and fire!

This is a 2 mile 20+ obstacle course intended to get you up and out of the house preparing for an amazing 2015 events season. Join the Yeti and frosty with us.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit KVC.

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.
