Obstacle Racing Workshop

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 6 Sep ’15, 12:00pm – 2:00pm


Mt Victoria, at the top of Marjoribanks st, Marjoribanks st, Wellington


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Obstacle Racing Workshop: $27.50
  • Workshop Series: $57.50

“Obstacle course racing” or “mud running” is described as one of the fastest growing sports of all time. Participants overcome various physical challenges designed to result in mental and physical collapse! And improve their resilience and self-confidence in the process. But best of all, it's just plain fun to run through mud, climb walls, and crawl under wire as if you were a kid again! Participation in these challenges has now matched, or by some reports surpassed, that of half-marathons and marathons combined.

Learn how to overcome the obstacles without fear with some of the secrets shared in this workshop.

The workshop will cover:
-Skills to help you get through your next race: how to scale a wall, and how to crawl under barbed wire
-A workout using the surrounding environment as obstacles, and how you can structure similar workouts on your own

Max has recently transitioned to obstacle course racing, after practicing parkour for years. He’s a MovNat Level 2 Certified Trainer and owner of Movement Unleashed which teaches parkour and ancestral fitness in Wellington. He writes about obstacle racing, parkour, and ancestral fitness at his blog – www.obstaclemethod.movementunleashed.com

Further workshops:
This workshop is part of a series. In the same day, we'll also be holding an ‘Ancestral Fitness Workshop’ and a ‘Parkour Workshop’. Attend all 3 workshops for a discounted price of $55. Learn to master your environment. More information at http://www.movementunleashed.com/obstacle-workshop-series/
