The ideal adventure

Every obstacle course is different, but try to book one with a range of challenges spread over a large site.


An obstacle course is a series of challenging physical hurdles, which test the participant’s speed and endurance. A good course should include some or all of the following components:

  • Running: trail, road and cross country.
  • Crawling: through tunnels and under wires.
  • Climbing: up cargo nets or over walls.
  • Balancing: on rope bridges or fallen logs across water.
  • Wading: through cold water and sloppy mud.

Other elements could include jumping, swimming and problem solving.

The course should be easy enough for the range of participants with different abilities, while remaining tough enough to prove a genuine trial, worthy of sponsorship.
