Have you guys heard of the BattleFrog Series? I just recently have myself, so if you haven’t, you’re not alone. It’s an obstacle type race that is designed so that there is something for the whole family to get involved in.
I did a Rugged Maniac last month and it was actually my 1st “obstacle” type race and I will admit, I was very nervous. I have ran 5ks and half marathons but I have never attempted crawling in the mud or climbing walls. Would I be strong enough? Would I like it? And much to my surprise, I actually really enjoyed it! I got dirty, real dirty, I fell in various water holes, jumped over fire, ran UP a wall, and I even got a hole in my running shorts, I did things that I never thought I could. It was a real awesome accomplishment!
Since then I have been paying a bit more attention to obstacle races that are coming to the area and I just heard about the BattleFrog Series. What I really like about this one, is that there are various options, so there is even something for little kids to do!
Here are the courses available:
The TadPole dash is for 4-8 year olds. The course has 8+ obstacles, through 400 meters, and is guaranteed to deliver a new experience of self-discovery. Children will learn they can take on these new and exciting challenges, while becoming “Fit for the Future”, getting totally muddy and having the time of their lives. Navy SEALs run the race with the kids, motivating them, entertaining them, and helping them over the tough spots and inspire them with the spirit of never quitting, teamwork and always trying your best. Start a lifetime love of fitness and competition at the Tadpole Dash.
For your slightly older kids there is the BullFrog Mile. Your children can test themselves on at least ten of the full-size obstacles the top competitors tackle, but with a more manageable distance of one mile. Designed for kids ages 8 to 13, your kids can sample the mud crawls, climbing walls, slip and slides and our “boot camp” military fitness exercise. All with Navy SEAL motivation throughout the course as your kids work with other racers as an individual or on a team. The BullFrog Mile combines the right amount of challenge with the right amount of fun.
The BattleFrog course is a total test for people of all fitness levels from ages 13 and up. Each step is inspired by the training that forges SEAL operators and prepares them to do anything, anytime, anywhere. The approximate 8K course will take you through 22+ SEAL-inspired obstacles that use air, land and water to test your body, mind and spirit.
