Want your very own custom obstacle course at your school, park, playground, camp or other facility? Pick from our menu of 26 Ninja Warrior/Mud Run style obstacles and customize your course based on the space available, age of participants, your budget, and your obstacle preferences (all obstacles are appropriate for participants ages 7+). The cost of the obstacle course depends on which obstacles you choose for your course, how many obstacles, and travel/lodging arrangements for our crew.
Obstacle course racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the US and beyond, largely due to the fact that people find it more fun, challenging, and rewarding than a typical trail run or road race. It combines high intensity running through diverse terrain with fun and challenging obstacles. Examples include Spartan Race, American Ninja Warrior, and Tough Mudder. In OCR, you run, climb, crawl, jump, and balance your way over, under, and through a wide variety of terrain and obstacles. Whether you’re a top competitor or a casual adventurer, you’ll leave with a feeling of accomplishment and self-improvement, along with the desire to improve and continue growing, not to mention the physical benefits of running through a high-intensity fitness course.
Obstacle Courses provide a fun, safe, and challenging place for participants of all ages and fitness levels to play, exercise and compete with one another. Here are a few great reasons to build an obstacle course at your camp, school, park, or organization!

What is the cost of delivery and construction of the obstacles?
Cost of delivery and installation of obstacles depends on exactly what obstacles you choose, how many you'd like to install, and where your facility/event is located. Obstacles can be found in our A La Carte Obstacle Menu. Keep in mind that we can customize any of these obstacles to meet your needs, and/or build obstacles that aren't on the list. Courses typically cost between $20,000-$100,000.
Does a representative from your company do the construction or are we responsible for that?
We offer consulting as well as installation services. An on-site consultation starts at $2,500 for a full assessment of your property and a detailed report on our professional recommendations for how to optimize your space for an obstacle course, which obstacles will best suit your participants, how to run your events/programming, and safety. We also provide installation services, bringing in the top builders in the industry to build your obstacle course with maximum durability and safety.
How long does installation take?
Installations generally take about 5-10 days, but could be longer for a course of more than 12 obstacles. For larger installations, we pre-fabricate obstacles off-site to minimize on-site build time.
How many obstacles do you recommend for a starter course?
We recommend 12 obstacles as the ideal number for a starter course, but you can still have a fun course with 7-8 obstacles, and add more obstacles year by year if you find the course is a success.
