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

The course is typically 1.55 miles long and features 30 obstacles that challenge the agility and strength of our participants.

A portion of the funds raised will benefit every elementary student who attends the Appleton Area School District. Each school will be eligible for a grant to enhance its physical education programs.

Our goal is to spotlight being physically active as well as raise money to advance healthy initiatives.
