In the two miles of the firefighter-themed course, participants will overcome 20 plus obstacles that show what it’s really like to be a firefighter. Those who accept the challenge will battle smoke, fire, water, foam, mud, and more to be able to proudly call themselves a hero.

The obstacle course will begin at 11 a.m. with pre-registration starting at 9:30 a.m.

To register stop at the fire hall on Madison Avenue, the YMCA, or contact Katie Zents at [email protected]

Registration is $20 and includes a t-shirt. Due to physical demands, participants must be 13 or older to take part in the obstacle course.
