Intro to Obstacle Course

Check out this new event custom designed for our group!   

WHEN: March 30th -Saturday 6pm-8pm: Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out waivers.

WHAT: Custom-designed just for the DC/MD/VA Aventurers Meetup!  Have you been training for one of the following events: American Ninja Warrior, MetroDash, Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, Deathrace 2000, The Long Walk, Jeopardy, Army Ranger School?  Always thought about signing up?   If you've always wanted to embark on the contest of a lifetime, and you need to get ready, because you're in it to win it or are just looking for a challenge... learn how to navigate obstacles with proper technique, experience flow of movement and find your inner ninja. You'll laugh at the mud, the tasers, the bee stings, the answers in the form of questions, because you *trained* and you suffered.  You will likely see some of the following type of activities:

1. Monkey Bars- Funky Monkey from tough mudder

2. Cargo net - Spiders web

3. Huge tires

4. High walls, slippery walls /Everest from tough mudder

5. Low obstacles to teach you to crawl more efficiently

6. Crash pads and 8 ft walls that allow you get a feel of jumping off heights- walk the plank from tough mudder

7. Swinging ropes (rope a dope from tough mudder)

8. Going up walls with or with out using ropes

9. Mud mounds from warrior dash

 

COST:  $40.00/per person.  Limited space so make sure to RSVP early via Amazon Payments!

    This is a specialty course unlike any other obstacle course you can find and shows you the tricks of how to beat and or complete the obstacles.

    Jason... having done some of the obstacles in the Ranger school... you might enjoy reminiscing... Danielle... It won't be easy but it won't be too hard. The instructors will show you how to complete the obstacles. Should be super fun!

    February 1, 2013

  • "Adventure G.

    :) It is a bit on purpose because the obstacles can change but to whet your appetite a bit... you will likely see something like....

    1. Monkey Bars- Funky Monkey from tough mudder
    2. Cargo net - Spiders web
    3. Huge tires
    4. High walls, we also try to emulate the slippery walls /Everest from tough mudder
    5. Low obstacles to teach you to crawl more efficiently
    6. Crash pads and 8 ft walls that allow you get a feel of jumping off heights- walk the plank from tough mudder
    7. Swinging ropes (rope a dope from tough mudder)
    8. Going up walls with or with out using ropes
    9. Mud mounds from warrior dash

  • Big W.

    The description is a little vague on what will actually happen. Is that on purpose?

    February 1, 2013

  • Jason

    So if we graduated Ranger school then we cant join? :( LOL

    February 1, 2013

  • Danielle

    Is this hard? I've never done anything like this before

    February 1, 2013

    • Danielle

      I guess I'll find out!

  • Neal

    Kind of steep price wise but I guess this is for people who never go through obstacle courses.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
