Kids Obstacle Challenge is the #1 obstacle course race series for kids ages 5-16 in the country and the best kids event to hit the Minneapolis area. We believe in building brave kids, and brave kids are forged in fire. Kids need to be challenged so that they can discover the power that lies within them. When kids push themselves towards a goal, it shows them what they are capable of, instilling confidence and perseverance.

​At Kids Obstacle Challenge, we encourage parents and caregivers to get out and active alongside their kids, so we allow two parents/legal guardians to run for FREE with their child(ren)! Show your kids the importance of an active lifestyle by participating with them, all while having a blast and spending quality time as a family. Kids Obstacle Challenge offers a fun and challenging 1.5-2 mile course, specially made for our Minneapolis kids event hosted in Hastings, MN. The course includes 13-15 distinctive obstacles that range in difficulty, so KOC is just as fun for a 5-year-old as it is for a 16-year-old, and, of course, for parents! Families will enjoy traversing rock walls, army crawling through mud pits, rope swinging over water, scaling up rugged cargo nets, and more!
