Rise Up Challenge has been hosting events in Alberta since 2015 and is a trail run that adds 20 fun and challenging obstacles into the mix to create a unique adventure in Alberta's great outdoors.
Our obstacles use elements found in nature to create hurdles that will add variety to your run and a physical and mental challenge for you to overcome. They may appear tough, but they are designed to be conquered by all who try. Some may be more demanding than others and we encourage you to ask for help if you need it.
Our courses are designed to flow along the trails and landscape of the Alberta backwoods and river valley. We then pepper the trails with creative obstacles that may have you swinging through the trees, jumping across creeks, climbing up hills, carrying, crawling and helping friends over barriers. Mash it all together and you have a fun, adventurous and memorable experience in the great outdoors!
At Rise Up Challenge, you can race solo or work together as a team to get through the course. Meet new friends along the way or use teamwork to get through the course and cross the finish line. Whether you're new to fitness looking for a fun day outdoors with friends and family, a seasoned athlete and weekend warrior looking to test your limits, or simply looking to experience something new — Rise Up Challenge is meant for you!
