Below are some of the possible obstacles from the Stop, Drop & Run. Obstacles this year will be similar, but we are still in the planning stages to determine what new additions there will be this year.
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 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: 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: 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: Every second counts! Grab onto the hose and start to pull the entire length of it. Once you reach the end you will have to pull the entire length to you. Think you are done? Run the hose back to the starting position and pull the entire length back to you again.
How to do obstacle: It is like gym class all over again! Grab onto the 10 foot cargo net, get yourself up and over.
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: When ready, jump into the dumpster and then the more fun part… make your way out. You can use any technique to get out: scale the wall, help one another, whatever it takes. (Note: There will be no garbage in the dumpster for those concerned with that.)
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: If you are not familiar with a burpee, it is where you do a push up and then push yourself up into a jump….now just add a cinderblock into the mix. Repeat 10 times.
*Obstacles can change at the discretion of the race director.
