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.

The KC Timber Challenge is a permanent obstacle course located along the bluffs of the Kansas River. Our course is cut through the woods, bluffs, rock walls and challenging terrain that we have to work with. Our unique events offer different course layouts that range from 2 miles to 5k to nearly 10k. The entire KC Timber Challenge obstacle course has over 50 obstacles over the whole course including 300 ft handheld zip lines, several mud pits, wrecked busses and much more.

We will be making some pretty major announcement regarding our obstacle course building projects starting this SPRING!

The Original KC Timber Challenge 5k Obstacle Course – Get WILD!

The Original KC Timber Challenge course is located on over 140 wooded acres along the banks of the Kansas River. We thought it would be WILD to create a one of a kind natural obstacle course using our unique terrain and landscape! Welcome back to the event that kicked it all off in 2014.
Be prepared for a 5k obstacle course with 30 unique challenges including: Mud, Fire, Ice, Bluff Climbs, a 7 story tower climb, the Vertigo Bus, hand held ZIP LINES stretching over mud pits and more.

NEW FOR 2016

We are building out several bad ass new obstacles in 2016. The first two obstacles will be ready by the KC Timber Challenge!
1. The first is a combination incline and decline monkey bars over mud pits similar to the image below*.
2. The second is a hand over rope crawl over our pond. This is going to be legit!
These new obstacle will be unleashed for this event! But we need your help to build this course up to be the most ridiculous badass course in the United States. With your help we need to SELL OUT the KC Timber Challenge! Please share, write about and spread the word about this awesome event. In return we will build out 4-5 more giant structures and build more awesome stuff for you!

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.
