Arrowhead Obstacle Trail Run returns Saturday, April 24th, 2021

Arrowhead Obstacle Trail Run is a 5k (3.1 mile) event on the scenic trails of Arrowhead Park near Neola, Iowa featuring 14+ obstacles.  There is also a 1 Mile Kid's Obstacle Trail Run with 7+ obstacles!   All proceeds will benefit the Pottawattamie County Trails Association.  The event will be held on Saturday April 24th, 2021 beginning at 10:00 AM.

There will be no Competitive Wave or timed event due to social distancing measures in Spring 2021.  Our primary goal is put on a fun event and get people out on the trails at Arrowhead Park.  Individual runners (or small groups who wish to run together) will be started with 30 second gaps, as ready.

This is not a "mud run" and there are no mud pits to crawl through (and therefore no cold April hose showers are necessary).  All obstacles (except the hills) are optional.  You may choose to run it as a 5k Trail Run, unimpeded by "fun".

The 1 Mile Kid's Run is recommended for ages 6-12 and adult chaperones, but is open to anyone.  (If you are an adult who wishes to run the 1 Mile as a parent/guardian AND the full 5k course, please sign up for the 5k and run the 1 Mile course at no additional charge.  If you wish to run ONLY the 1 Mile as a parent/guardian, please sign up for the 1 Mile Kid's Run.)  Chaperones are NOT required, there will be volunteers along the course.  Registration and signed waiver are required for anyone on the course, for insurance purposes.

Registration includes entrance to the park, free parking and free event photos available on Facebook and RunSignUp following the run.  Pricing is $30 for the 5k and $10 for the 1 Mile.  On site, day of event registration will be $35 for the 5K, $10 for 1 Mile CASH ONLY please.

An event T-shirt can be purchased for only $10 during registration!  If you would like a T-shirt to commemorate your conquest of the course, please pre-order during checkout.  Only a limited number will be available for sale the day of the run.  The deadline to order a T-shirt is Monday April 12th.

Thank you for your interest!
