Intro to Obstacle Course

Check out this new event custom designed for our group!   

WHEN: May 18th -Saturday 6pm-8pm: Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out waivers.

WHAT: Back by special request!  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!

 

CARPOOL: Don’t forget if you want a ride or are willing to offer a ride – be a friend to the environment, save money, and make friends by just posting a message!! There is also ample parking.

- Have a ride: Please post where you are coming from, what time, and how many spots you have.

- Need a ride: Post that you need a ride and contact any offers via e-mail for those that are offering rides.

      UE does the intro level courses on Saturdays at 1PM in both manassas and Alexandria. The obstacle course tng is every sunday at 3PM in Alexandria. drop-in classes are $20. But Anita is right -we are trying to get together once a month. Next outing 2 June at 3 in Alexandria. I'm at the manassas loc at 1PM every sunday otherwise.

    Hi peeps

    I started a parkour/obstl crs Meetup page so if your interested in Spartans, Tough Mudders, Runamuks, Mud runs, Muddie Buddies, and other like minded obstacle or adv races and want to train together at UE. I'll post events and train ups there. (Ask me about running with the bulls for example LOL...)

    anywho - Im going to ask UE to sponsor the meet up page and offer perks. Will follow up on the guest pass thing that will useful to get non-members in and an opportunity to try a class.

    please consider joining the site at:

    Im also trying to get them to arrange an outdoor excursion for parkour and get in a hike or bike at rock creek or another park later this summer.

    ok jun 2 - will keep you posted on guest pass but for those considering regular visits - a punch card is better than drop in rates which I believe are $20 not 10...

    Hi all - I just created a meet up site for parkour and obstacle course training. it will take a day or so to approve - but I'll post schedules- weekly for parkour at UE -Alexandria and Manassas. Eventually we can alternate bi-weekly for parkour and obstacle course training. but hope to see you guys again - next time lets grab a bite to eat after :)
    cheers - noelle

    Is this inside or outside? It looks like Urban Evolution is inside but the description mentions mud mounds.

    What kind of challenge are we talking here? Or will this mainly be training and trying things out?
