This will be a limited capacity, multi-stage event with cash prizes and half the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project. NOTE: This is not a competition for beginners!
Some details are still being worked out. But here are the highlights:
Saturday, January 16 (Multi-angle live stream on Facebook and Youtube)
two course stage 1 (speed and technical)... top 50% of men and women by combined score from both courses move on to
stage 2 (longer, more technical course), top 12 overall and top 3 women (if not in top 12) move on to
stage 3 (very challenging upper body and grip course)
Both Stage 1 courses will use NCL Rules
with points gained as you progress on the obstacles.
Stage 2 will have a point system and will allow 1 fail - second fail ends your run.
Stage 3 will be one fail and you're done... farthest, fastest
