PUSH YOURSELF BEYOND THE EXPECTED
5 KILOMETERS • 18 OBSTACLES • 1 KICKASS EXPERIENCE
When it comes to extreme terrain, we wrote the book on it. From professional off-road truck racing, to Snocross, and so much more, extreme is not only in our name, it’s who we are. With more than 500 acres of rolling terrain and thick woods at our disposal, our course experts have developed an obstacle circuit that’s monstrous in scope, extreme in design and infused with a family fun atmosphere that our events are known for.
The ERX Extreme 5K will challenge and reward participants of all ages and skill levels. Featuring 18 obstacles, professional timing, a dedicated kidz zone and an after-party.
Army crawl your way under barbed wire into the deep cold and murky water!
Hope you don’t have a fear of heights! This giant 14 ft wall of stacked logs is skyhigh and requires self-confidence and focus.
Standing over 7 feet tall, these mighty vertical walls make for a challenging task to get over, only to be faced with oversized slippery tires.
This leapfrogging obstacle will test your agility and balance. One wrong step will leave you waist deep with the swamp creatures.
Over or under a lineup of logs… that is the question?
This cringeworthy clay hill climb is rough…. you’re lucky we provide a rope.
Start your Extreme 5k experience with some steep, slippery, slopes of mud and dirt! Be prepared to get dirty on this one! These whoops will be sure to whoop your butt.
Cold showers are good for you, right? Our snow guns are ready to blast you with an (ice cold) refreshing rain
The Final Hurdle
The last obstacle standing between you and the finish line is a mountain of slippery mud with a row of mega tires on top. Find the strength to pull yourself up and over to wrap up your race.
