DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - It's a way the entire family can get up, get moving, and have fun.
The Dorchester Two Educational Foundation is sponsoring the Big Obstacle Challenge. Adults and children, kindergarten through high school, are encouraged to get physical at this event on Oct. 2.
The event will raise funds to support learning activities at schools across Dorchester District Two.
There are obstacle courses designed for different ages and fitness levels. Participants kindergarten through adult who conquer the Challenge course will complete 10 obstacles before crossing the finish line.
Fitness enthusiasts sixth grade and older looking to test their strength can register for the Advanced Challenge.
It consists of 16 obstacles that stand between them and the bragging rights of a conqueror! Don't think you can complete the challenge? Well, 10 jumping jacks on the Challenge course and 10 burpees on the Advanced course allow participants to proceed to the next obstacle.
Organizers say there's plenty for spectators to do as well. There will be a fan experience zone with local vendors (including the Ashley Ridge High School Agriculture program), live music and games while watching participants take on the challenge!
