What type of athlete or runner do I need to be?
Finishing the Lion’s Chase is more about mental toughness than being in great shape. The course is 3.1 miles of pure fun. You can walk or run. You can be an avid runner, or just someone looking to have a fun day with friends. The obstacles will be challenging, but FUN and if you can’t complete any of them, there will be an alternate exercise which will take more time but be less demanding physically. Our goal is to have a great time and we believe folks of all sorts can tackle the Lion’s Chase!
How difficult are the trails and what about the obstacles? What if I can’t make it through one?
The Lion’s Chase will take place within the wooded and open trails. The terrain will be dirt, gravel, grass, and of course some mud. It is challenging, but all trails will be wide enough for walkers if you need to take a break.
As for the obstacles, there will be walls, crawling, jumping, and climbing. You might find yourself running through a creek or swimming in a pond. Each obstacle will have an alternate exercise, so if a participant doesn’t think they can pull it off, they can perform the alternate exercise which will take more time but be less demanding physically.
Lastly, there will be a number of course monitors and medical folks throughout the course. We want this to be a SAFE and FUN event and if anyone can’t continue, we will promptly get them back to the post-race area.
Will there be a gear check available?
No. Parking is within close proximity to the start and finish and participants will have easy access their vehicles. We will have a key check at registration for keys only.
Is Lion’s Chase Safe?
There's certainly risk involved in Lion’s Chase, but we take every precaution possible to get you to the finish line safely. You enter Lion’s Chase at your own risk.
