Kansas City Hosts Its Own Adventure Race - KC Timber Challenge

In that era of adventure and fun runs, Kansas City has an epic event of its own that’s never been seen. The KC Timber Challenge combines running, zip lines, and obstacles into on dynamic event. Make no mistake this is a challenge not a race. Prepare to test yourself May 18, 2014

The challenge is the brain child of the operators of Adventure Zip KC (www.AdventureZipKC.com) in conjunction with sponsors such as Ink Magazine, Nightlife KC, KC Sport & Social, Taxi Channel, Complete Nutrition, and Social WRX Public & Social Relations. Unlike many of the other adventure concepts that have hit the Kansas City, the challenge is very affordable. Right now participants can register for just $50. Other races such as Tough Mudder charge participants as much as $180 dollars to participate.

The KC Timber Challenge course is located on over 130 wooded acres along the banks of the Kansas River. The creators thought it would be amazing to create a one of a kind natural obstacle course using the unique terrain and landscape of the facility. The 5k course includes obstacles that incorporate Mud, Fire, Ice, Bluff Climbs, a 7 story tower climb, hand held ZIP LINES stretching over mud pits and other exciting objects to be announced soon.

The challenge will test participants physically, but it is also meant to be fun. All challengers are encouraged to dress in the wildest costumes while pushing their individual limits. After seeing the initial phases of the course, it is sure to test your stamina and will to succeed. Participants will be rewarded with a celebration including music, food and drinks at the end of the challenge. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the KC Pet Project. This organization does the great things in Kansas City to end the killing of healthy and treatable pets in Kansas City!
