It would be fun for sure though.
Yes! I completely agree. These types of events are great for the running community as a whole since it gets people active. You are also correct in that not each obstacle is easy. The quarter pipe is pretty challenging.

Just dont tell me it was intese and that your hardcore because you climbed monkey bars and rope. Like I said I get the feeling the next story is going to be "I had to strap into this harness and risked my life falling down a ZIPLINE!"
There you go again about how much more fit you are than everyone else. How do you know you will finish ahead of most people? You only run a couple miles at a time. The course is much longer than a couple miles......
