Shalya Woodson, Parent My 10-year-old daughter loves to run the course. My 15-year-old son always wants to bring his friends so they can race each other. My husband and I even run the course. It's such a fun way to spend time with our entire family together.
Wyatt T., age 13 It's awesome that my whole class can be out here competing like its American Ninja Warrior. I love this course!
Rachel Abelson, Minneapolis, MN I use the Challenge Course in our park as part of my training for obstacle course races. It's the most fun I have ever had training!
Petra R., age 13 I love this course! It's great for being active and to help me train. It's just like the ninja warrior course.

Professional-Grade Timing Systems

Make your mark on the leaderboard

When you add an optional timing system to your Challenge Course things get really interesting! We use the same systems used by FINRA, NCAA and other athletic organizations to provide accurate timing for your course. Users press and hold the button before they begin. The scoreboard signals when to start with a sequence of LED lights. When you complete the obstacle course, press the button at the finish line to display your time on the board.
