Route information
The Claw course provides longer distance with more trail running and obstacles challenges to push you to the next level. Improving the experience from the signature course of the past years, the Claw course goes through East Walker Ranch and Golden Valley Open Space where the course has been extended with a long single track section to eliminate the out and back and create a full loop to bring the course to just over 8.5-miles) featuring a variety of challenging trails, killer hills, and 20 unique obstacles peppered throughout to give you the ultimate Grit OCR challenge.
The Fang course is perfect for first-timers or those not ready for the more intense challenge of the Claw course, trimming the distance and obstacle challenges while doing the route in reverse to make more fun for those doing both days. The Fang course goes through East Walker Ranch and a little bit on Golden Valley Open Space to bring the course to 5.5-miles featuring a variety of challenging trails, killer hills, and 19 unique obstacles peppered throughout to give you a great Grit OCR challenge.
Obstacles
Both courses featuring a variety of challenging obstacles, including physical obstacle structures, carry obstacles, signature obstacles, and environmental challenges, each is designed to test the strength and endurance of your whole body.
Boo's Closet: Test your grip and core strength while traversing your way across a series of floating doors. You will need all the strength, wits and grit to pull through this one so you are not left hanging.
Hammer Time: A unique obstacle to test your strength, core, and focus as you hammer a weight box up and down the track with a sledgehammer.
Yolk'd: Train like an athlete by carrying a pole weighted with cinder blocks on both ends. Carry these for 200 meters, testing your strength and agility.
Out of Gas: Carry two military jerry cans full through 400 meters of tough trail terrain. At first, it feels easy, but the sand in cans make them heavy, so the longer you go it feels like your arms are ready to fall off!
Dennis the Menace
Participants must use a slingshot to hit the bullseye target.
HT Flip: Take a giant wooden cargo box, taller than you and heavy, now flip it forward four times and back four times. Pushing all your muscles to get this done your legs, core, and upper body.
Hell On Wheels: Take a HEAVY or HEAVIER modified 4-wheel wheelbarrow loaded with sand as you lift and push out and back in a straight line. Switching sides at the halfway point.
Potassium: Test your grip strength and agility on this banana rig using only your grip and arm strength as you grab banana shape grips to get across. Tap the critter at the end to get off.
Over It Hurdles: Back to back set of high hurdle challenges to climb over, testing your jumping, upper body strength to pull up and over.
Flaming Legs: Making use of the beautiful natural environment, run up and down a series of steep hill inclines while carrying a challenge pack that will build your strength and agility, oh and your legs will feel like they are on fire!
Mayhem Walls: A series of challenging wall climbs, straight up 6 and 8-foot walls. Jump up, grab the top, and pull yourself up. Get your team mates to help you get through it.
Rock'n Crawl: Thought that Cargo Creep from previous years was easy with the nice cargo net? Now you gotta stay extra low to avoid getting caught by the barbed wire as you crawl through to the other side.
Timber Tantrum: Pick up one of Rick's logs and carry out for approximately 800-feet and back for a total of 1600-feet. Awkward and challenging to grip and carry, each step gets harder and harder.
