Event date: 5/25/2019 10:00 AM Export event Justin Janke / Wednesday, April 17, 2019 / Categories: Top Events, Community Events Rise Up Challenge Rise Up Challenge has been hosting events in Alberta since 2015 and combines the freedom of trail running, with the adventure that 20 fun and challenging obstacles can bring into the experience. The two mixed together creates a unique and memorable day in Alberta's great outdoors, full of smiles, laughs and high-fives. Our obstacles take their inspiration from elements found in nature to create obstacles that will add variety to your run and a physical and mental challenge for your mind, body and soul. They may appear tough once encountered, but they are designed to be conquered by all who try. Some obstacles may be more demanding than others and we encourage you to ask for help from others to overcome them. This year's course flows along the trails and landscape of the Alberta wilderness and river valley. We then pepper the trails with obstacles; that may have you swinging through trees, jumping across creeks, climbing up hills, carrying logs, crawling through brush and helping friends over barriers. Mash it all together and you have a fun, adventurous and memorable experience in the great outdoors! At Rise Up Challenge, you can race solo or work together as a team to get through the course. Meet new friends along the way or use teamwork to get through the many hurdles along the course and cross the finish line a winner. Whether you're new to fitness looking for a fun day outdoors with friends and family, or a seasoned athlete and weekend warrior looking to test their strength and conditioning or prepare for their next endurance race, or simply looking to experience something new - the Rise Up Challenge is for you!
