This will be a limited capacity, multi-stage event with cash prizes and half the proceeds going to Safe Families for Children. NOTE: This is not a competition for beginners!
Some details are still being worked out. But here are the highlights:
Saturday, February 13 (Live stream on Facebook and Youtube)
- two course stage 1 (speed and technical)... top 50% of male and female by combined score from both courses move on to
- stage 2 (longer, more technical course), top 8 overall and top 2 female (if not in top 8) 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
Sunday, February 14 afternoon (optional team comp, starting at 2 PM):
NOTE: Monday, February 15 is President's Day which may give people more options to consider for those traveling
two part team competition (teams will be assembled from all participants in a manner to-be-determined...)
tag team competition on hybrid course from all three stages
(and possibly some other wrinkles)
skills competition - one team member per skill
meet-and-greet for spectators throughout the afternoon
