Looking for a new goal or challenge to encourage you to get that last rep or do that last burpee? Then you should think about joining the bodhi community for an outdoor obstacle race this summer, June 3rd to be specific… When we are going to be participating in the Goliathon Race… what is the goliathon? Introducing the goliathon obstacle training, at bodhi.
They do a great job of describing it on their web-site:
” While many obstacle runs support non-profit organizations, Goliathon’s sole purpose is to raise money for those in need. (And to have some fun while doing it.) We want to invite everyone to join us in this venture, regardless of age or ability. – http://www.goliathon.com/
Goliathon Obstacle training for all fitness levels
With that in mind, we’ve developed a course to attract a wide range of participants – from the most skilled athlete to the fitness novice. Once underway, you will encounter two types of obstacles – regular obstacles and Goliathon obstacles. The regular obstacles are the same for all participants and are designed to be both fun and challenging for you and your team. The Goliathon obstacles consist of multiple tracks so that you can choose the path that’s right for you. These obstacles are intended to be a max test for your strength, agility, speed and athleticism, and will be tiered as either:
G1 – easy obstacles for the young or inexperienced participant
G2 – difficult obstacles to challenge the average mudder and obstacle enthusiast
G3 – extreme obstacles to test the most elite athletes “
It is not a timed event so we will be helping and cheering everyone through every obstacle to make sure we finish as one bodhi community like in everything else we do. You may still have a question about the Goliath obstacles – I think the “Sky Climb” best demonstrates the levels. This obstacle is basically a rope climb G3 is a straight rope like you’d see at a spartan or tough mudder race, G2 is a rope with many knots placed within the rope to help climb and G1 is a rope ladder with rungs to help you up. As you can see its for every level. And you can change levels at each level if you want to challenge or take it down a notch ;).
The website for a ton of more information is Goliathon.com. They have videos of past races some of the obstacles, and much more. Also as you may note in their description this is a non-profit organization and 100% of the proceedings to to charity “charity:water” more information on that also on the website.
