What are we doing? Timing ourselves over the length of an obstacle course of hurdles, a hill, weaving patterns, and side-stepping.
Where should we do it? At a local greenspace that has open area with safe footing and a moderate 10 metre hill.
What do we need? Stopwatch or timer app on your phone, two hurdle objects, a dozen pylon objects.
How should we set-up?
Set one “pylon” as your starting place.
Set your hurdle object 10m ahead of the pylon.
Set a “pylon” at the base of the hill, 10m ahead of the hurdle object and another “pylon” 10m up the hill.
Set a pylon 10m ahead of the pylon at the base of the hill.
Set five “pylons” in a 3x2 pace weaving pattern at the base of the hill.
Set a “pylon” 10m ahead of the last weaving pylon, and two more “pylons” each 5m ahead of each other from there.
Set a hurdle object 10m ahead of the last 5m “pylon.”
Set one “pylon” 10m past the hurdle object as your finish “pylon.”
How do we do it?
- Set your stopwatch as you leave your start pylon.
- Proceed over the hurdle, run up the hill, WALK down the hill, move through the weaving pattern, side-step 5m in each direction, go over the hurdle, and finish at the last pylon.
- Stop the watch.
- Submit the time it took to complete the obstacle course.
