WALLS, OVER AND UNDERS, SLIPPERY SLOPES, AND THE ROPE CLIMB HAVE BECOME STAPLE OBSTACLES ON COURSES AROUND THE WORLD. THESE MILITARY STYLE OBSTACLES WERE THE ORIGINAL INSPIRATION BEHIND OBSTACLE COURSE RACING. IT IS EXPECTED TO SEE THESE FAMILIAR OBSTACLES ON ANY COURSE. TRAIN ACCORDINGLY. THESE OBSTACLES WERE DESIGNED TO TEST AND INCREASE AGILITY AND BALANCE. YOU WILL NEED UPPER BODY STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION TO CLEAR THESE.



THESE OBSTACLES ARE DESIGNED TO SLOW YOU DOWN. BARB WIRE CRAWLS FORCE RACERS TO GET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO NAVIGATE UNDER THE WIRES. UPPER BODY STRENGTH IS KEY. TUBE CRAWLS LIMIT ARM AND BODY MOVEMENT AND REQUIRE LOWER BODY STRENGTH. BE CAUTIOUS AND AVOID TIRING YOURSELF OUT.




VERTICAL WALLS, BALANCE BEAMS, TIRES AND ROPES AND SAND BAG CARRIES. THESE OBSTACLES CHALLENGE RACERS TO MOVE FAST WHILE MAINTAINING GOOD BALANCE. THESE OBSTACLES WILL OFTEN SLOW DOWN EVEN THE MOST EXPERIENCED OBSTACLE RACER. A WELL DEVELOPED GROUP OF CORE MUSCLES HELPS AID IN BOTH BALANCE AND IN STAMINA. THINK AHEAD AND FOCUS ON SURE FOOTING.




NATURAL OBSTACLES ARE TERRAIN BASED. HILL RUNNING, MUD BOGS, SLIPPERS SWITCHBACKS AND WATER CROSSINGS. ATLAS RACE IS KNOWN FOR ITS CREATIVE AND PUNISHING USE OF NATURAL OBSTACLES. EXPECT ELEVATION GAINS AND DROPS, SLIPPERY SURFACES, AND MUDDY HILLS DESIGNED TO SAP YOUR STRENGTH AND STAMINA. THESE OBSTACLES REQUIRE EVERY MUSCLE GROUP.


TRAIN FOR THE EXPECTED - BUT EXPECT TO BE SURPRISED

WE ARE ALWAYS HARD AT WORK DEVELOPING NEW AND NASTY OBSTACLES. ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT REVEAL ALL OF OUR OBSTACLES UNTIL RACE DAY, WE CAN RECOMMEND A GREAT WAY TO PREPARE FOR THE UNEXPECTED:
