The one-mile course held at Waldameer Park is primarily on paved road and features 16 obstacles that involve pulling, pushing, carrying and navigating ramps. All obstacles are optional and can be completed by participants who are ambulatory or using a wheelchair, walker, etc. The fully accessible Adapted Course coincides with the 10-mile obstacle course, as the two courses meet up to cross the finish line all together!
