Mar. 28th-29th, 2020 – Epic Series: Fresno

EPIC Series is a heroic and endurance filled obstacle course race (OCR). It combines elements of cross-training, strongman, and traditional obstacle course racing, without the mud or long-distance running. By creating obstacles that have Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced options, EPIC Series opens up obstacle course racing to a wider audience of fitness enthusiasts. We’ve also incorporated a family-friendly event, a Kids Course, that mimics a kid-sized version of the obstacles and strength challenges seen in the adult courses.

COURSE OPTIONS & DETAILS:

Otherwise known as The Main Event! This course is approximately 1.5 miles long and packed tight with over 40 back-to-back obstacle challenges. Each station has Beginner (green), Intermediate (blue), and Advanced (black) options to pick from, so you can choose your challenge at every turn.
Ages 13+

This course has 2 wave types:

Age Group Waves – Men must do all Advanced obstacles; Women must do at least Intermediate obstacles. This course is timed.
Eligible for Podium Prizes.

OPEN Waves- Athletes of all ability levels may choose any level obstacle to complete at any time with no penalty. This course is timed.

THE ELITE COURSE
Not for the faint of heart, the ELITE Course is an intense gauntlet of 10 of the toughest challenges on earth. ELITE Athletes must first complete all the Advanced obstacles in the EPIC Course before moving on to this course, which starts off with a Truck Pull! From there, Athletes have 15 minutes to complete the ELITE Course individually with a judge by their side and knock out a number of strength challenges using Barbells, Atlas Stones, Kettlebells, Tires, Sandbags, and more.

THE KIDS COURSE
For Junior Athletes, the KIDS Course is a mini-sized hybrid of the EPIC Course and ELITE Course. Junior Athletes can run, jump, lift, and crawl their way through a short course that ends with a giant inflatable bounce course with a giant slide! Each Junior Athlete receives a high-quality, custom finisher medal at the end of their first run through the KIDS Course, but may complete the course as many times as they’d like.


Aid / Water Stations
During the race, there will be water stations.
