Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge


Due to the challenges with COVID 19, we will not be able to safely run the TKC event this year. We will look forward to seeing you again in 2021. Keep challenging yourself this year and stay healthy!

The Fox Valley Tough Kid Challenge is an obstacle course event and fundraiser for Appleton Area School District's physical education departments.

The event is open to kids age 6 to 13 years of age.

Cost of the event is $10 per participant. Parents can go with their child for free by signing a waiver the day of the event. After September 12th, the cost will increase to $12 per participant.

The event will be held at Highlands Elementary School, 2037 N. Elinor St. Appleton, WI 54914.

The TKC course will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 1:00 p.m. Participants will  travel through the course in spaced intervals to allow for flexibility in family schedules and maximum participation throughout the entire event.

The total participation for this event will be capped at 2,000 youth participants plus the adults going with them. Due to the success of last year's event, we are anticipating this year's event to fill up fast. Early sign up is encouraged.

Last year the course was 1.55 miles and featured 30 obstacles that challenged the agility and strength of our participants. This year the course will be of similar distance with new twists and turns.
