What to bring

  • Leggings or long shorts - If you are wearing shorts, wear long underwear and keep in mind that you will go over obstacles and need to cover up.

  • Hand gloves.

  • Water packs – Not required but recommended. It would be best if you kept the water pack with you as you go over/under the obstacles.

  • Life Jacket – Bring your own life jacket as the race will take you to the pond where you need to cross using the ropes.

Elite Racers

Race Information

The race is based on modern endurance races where Master Guides will need to overcome obstacles and challenges along the way. You need to be fit in order to participate. The race will be 3-5 miles long and have 15+ obstacles that you will need to go over, under, or through. Go to the camporee page to download the race information 

 

Participants

All Master Guides and friends can participate but must be fit and sign a waiver before the race. We highly recommend you exercise regularly and consult your doctor before the race.

 

Training

  • Build an Aerobic Base: The Ultimate Master Race is a running event. Start running at an easy, manageable intensity three days per week, ideally on trails, until your body asks for more. Then, run harder on one day, add sprints to another, and keep the third easy – but add time.

  • The Race requires overall fitness. Add Burpees, Bear Crawls, and Jumping Pull-Ups. After two or three weeks, it is time to develop your obstacle immunity! Burpees, bear crawls and jumping pull-ups will help you with the athleticism and strength needed to conquer this Race. Practice these exercises for 10-15 minutes each, 2-3 days per week.

  • Obstacle-Specific Practice: Carrying a 5-gallon bucket upstairs, practicing the monkey bars at a neighborhood playground, climbing out of the deep end of a swimming pool, and practicing rope climbing techniques. Complete the 30 Burpees each day for a 30-day Challenge.
