These are the obstacles from the 2017 Stop, Drop & Run 5k. We will be releasing the 2018 Obstacle list at a later date.
How to do obstacle: Get those legs pumping right off the bat at the start of the race as you make your way through a tire pit.
How to do obstacle: Working with a partner, the two of you will climb through the window and rescue the victim on the backboard. Lifting with your knees, lift the victim and carry to the window ledge. Have the first runner climb through the window and slide the backboard along the ledge to allow the second runner climb through. Once both runners are through, lift the victim and carry to safety.
How to do obstacle: Jump up onto the balance beam and then it is just a matter of one foot in front of the other. Fall off the log and back to the start you go.
How to do obstacle: Jump into the swim tank and make your way from one end to another. Make sure to dodge the obstacles. Once you make it to the other side, safely climb out and proceed to the next obstacle.
How to do obstacle: A series of walls will be in your way, you need to either go over them or under them to complete the obstacle.
How to do obstacle: Did you know that firefighters can squeeze through the smallest of spaces with an airpack on? Now it is your turn to make it through closed spaces. Get on your hands and knees and climb your way through the confined spaces simulator.
How to do obstacle: When ready, lift the tire with your knees, and throw it around your shoulder. You will now follow the obstacle route, doing lounges during the entirety of it.
How to do obstacle: This is a group effort! When all runners are ready, lift the pole together. Once everyone is comfortable, carry the pole the length of the obstacle.
How to do obstacle: Select which bag you want to carry depending on the weight you can comfortably carry. Lift the bag with your knees, not your back. Carry the length of the obstacle.

How to do obstacle: Climb onto the first lilypad and hang onto the rope as your try to step from one lilypad to the next.
How to do obstacle: Just like the typical rope crawl, make your way from one end to the other by staying low and crawling on your elbows and knees.
How to do obstacle: When instructed, pick up the ax. Make sure you are clear of any other runners or volunteers. Swing the ax over your shoulder and make cuts down the marked areas on the roof simulator.
How to do obstacle: When told, enter the enclosed smoke maze. Using your hands to feel where you are, find your way out of the enclosure.
How to do obstacle: We advise getting a running start on this one. If you feel you can jump over the 4 foot and 6 foot wall by yourself, by all means go for it. If you see someone needs help or if you need help, work with the other runners to clear the wall. You can lift each other, use your legs as step stools or use any other way that works. Once you clear the 4 foot wall, move onto the 6 foot wall. Same rules apply by helping out others.
How to do obstacle: You can either do arm over arm or drag the weight sleigh, the choice is yours.
How to do obstacle: It is like gym class all over again! Get up onto the top of the cargo box and climb your way across it.
How to do obstacle: Be prepared to grab a hose and help put out vehicle fire. Don’t worry, you will have trained firefighters there to assist you.
How to do obstacle: Locate the victim. You can extricate and carry/drag the victim any way that works for you. Typically grabbing the victim under the shoulders and dragging is the easiest way. Drag the victim to the designated rescue location.
How to do obstacle: Don’t want to get too wet….run…run very fast!
How to do obstacle: Grab onto the rope and climb your way up this slippery mountain, then enjoy your slide back down.
How to do obstacle: Imagine being on the edge of a building with only a few inches to go from window to window. Well imagine no more. Approach the wall and step onto the first ledge and get from one side to the other with only a few inches of footing.
How to do obstacle: You are going to need to jump from the ground up onto the box and then back down again on the other side. Repeat this 10 times and then you are off to the next obstacle.
