Past Participant Testimonials
Read what past participants have to say on Facebook about this thrilling event!

"Today I participated in the Biggest Loser Run Walk. It was a 5K at the Spartan Races. I climbed two mountains hiked down a cliff, jumped over fire. I wanted to quit but like so much in life quitting really wasn't an option. Chris wouldn't let me. Amanda in front kept cheering me on. At one point several [participants] not worried about their times helped me make the top of the hill. I am amazed and honored that I did this. I have forgiven Amanda Windes for getting me into this. And I am so proud that Courtney Warren did the full race. Like life can be it was not pretty. It was messy and hard. When we crested the mountain Chris showed me how far up we had climbed and said look at how beautiful it is, how hard you have come and feel what you have accomplished. No one can take that from you. You did it. You..."

What is an Off-Road Challenge?
Just a total blast, that's all! An Off-Road Challenge is a combination trail, mud and obstacle run. Obstacles are optional, but come on, that's where all the fun is! Off-Road Challenges are a team effort. We start and end as a team. It's inspirational; we help and motivate one another. It's muddy; you'll have a blast! You'll meet personal goals, perform obstacles you didn't know you were capable of, have unforgettable memories and make new friends. Did we mention there is a group photo! Remember: There Will Be Mud!

See what it's about for yourself.
