A group of young men have put together a unique fundraising idea – a Ninja Challenge Obstacle Course featuring a 5k run with a plethora of challenges confronting you along the way.

Unique fundraising idea - Ninja Challenge Obstacle Course

The Ninja Challenge is a 5k run filled with challenges to bring out your inner ninja. The course includes a 12-foot wall to climb over, a water-filled pit where you swing across Tarzan-style using a series of dangling pipes on ropes, a vertical chimney climb between two 12-foot walls, another obstacle where you leap from rooftop to rooftop, and many more obstacles along the way.

Volunteers are stationed at each obstacle to coach and encourage competitors. You can opt out of any obstacle that is beyond your capabilities by doing pushups or situps.

Its all in good fun to raise funds for the Red Cross and honor a late friend of the organizing group.

The entry fee is $55 and contestants will compete in waves, with staggered starts every 30 minutes and prizes for top performances.

Each wave of contestants will contain a “Super Ninja” to test your ninja chops against.  If you beat the Super Ninja in your wave, then you earn a spot in the Super Ninja Hall of Fame and a free entry in a future fundraising challenge.
