OBSTACLE LIST

  • CAT TAILS
    (obstacle 1) You'll have to grab our snowcats by the tail to get up this slope. Don't slip or you will end up back at the Foggy Goggle before you have worked up a thirst.
  • ON THE ROCKS
    (obstacle 2) Have you heard about being stuck between a rock and a hard place? You're in luck, this has both!
  • BOND
    (obstacle 3) Ready for some bonding time? You're in luck! YOu are on the 007 trail, like Bond, James Bond. No secret agents here. Just keep running.
  • PIPE DREAM
    (obstacle 4)Our construction crew forgot to put their giant pipes in the ground. Not to worry, just give it a big leap and slide over.
  • MT. EVEREST
    (obstacle 5) We had a lot of snow this year so we have added some foothills to our giant scale model of the giant peak.
  • LOG HURTLES
    (obstacle 6) Leaping Logs! Watch your step or you'll end up knocking your noggin.
  • ROLLER DERBY
    (obstacle 7) Make it over this rollers, and if you can hold on you'll go under, and over, and under, and over...
  • Trout Line
    (obstacle 8) Getting across the pond doesn’t mean you will necessarily get wet, but you probably will because it is hard to balance a tired and aching body on a teeny little line. If you feel a nibble, don’t worry. The trout that swim the pond are trained to not eat people.
  • The Belly Flop
    (obstacle 9)Good luck making it up this muddy hill without any assistance. When you slip, you'll be doing a belly flop and find yourself sliding back down the hill.
  • Nail Biter
    (obstacle 10) We figured everything but your fingertips hurt at this point. After this obstacle, the pain will be total.
  • GIANT BOULDER
    (obstacle 11) Isn't "giant boulder" redundant? Not this one. Climb, baby, climb!
  • Boulder Dash
    (obstacle 12) That’s right - more rocks to climb over! These are bigger and slicker than the last ones, plus they cut about 50 feet off the route.
  • Tahoe Trot
    (obstacle 13) Nothing like a nice jog through ice water to get you blood going. The cold water will help stop the bleeding.
  • FALLING WALLERS
    (obstacle 14) Do you still have the strength to make it over these angled walls or will you be falling?
  • TEETER
    (obstacle 15) Life is about balance, so is this obstacle. Find your balance or find the mud.
  • Wormhole
    (obstacle 16 Slithering through a dark wet tunnel might make you feel like a night crawler, but don’t worry the end is near! Just remember to crawl towards the light.
  • SPEED BUMP
    (obstacle 17) Just when the going gets easy, the going gets verticle. Have a nice climb!
  • Swamp Swaggle
    (obstacle 18) We call it Mud on the Mountain for a reason. It’s such a lovely spot for a mud bath, we should have charged extra for it. Travel through the mud and along one of the prettiest ponds at the resort.
  • The Hangover
    (obstacle 19) Your whole body will hurt after you dangle from your arms above a mighty mass of mud. This monster of an obstacle is definitely no playground.
  • GRANITE SCAMPER
    (obstacle 20) We always have asked “Why run down a lovely country lane when you can make your way over giant boulders and through briars?” This obstacle took millions of years to make and is brought to you by Mother Nature.
  • POLE-LAND
    (obstacle 21) You are back on dry land. Now you just have to go over and under a few giant, and slick, poles we have placed in your way. Watch your head! We don’t want you to get a boo-boo.
  • DUNK, DUNK, GOOSE
    (obstacle 22) You will feel like a waterfowl as you make your way across a pond and under barrels that we have placed in your path. The pond is not all that deep, and we guarantee the water temperature is at least 33 degrees.
  • THE HEAD BANGER
    (obstacle 23) Keep your head and other big body parts down as you crawl under a web of barbwire. Please don't bleed on your muddy friends and family.
  • Three Stooges
    (obstacle 24) You'll be screaming for Larry, Curly and no Moe after you tackle these three walls.
  • THE CHEESE GRATER
    (obstacle 25) It may look like a giant waterslide to you, but once you've been down the slide of doom, you will understand why we named it what we did. Look out for the rock under lane one, or is it lane two?
  • Log Out
    (obstacle 26) We wanted to “branch” out a little with this obstacle that will “leave” you wondering what you have gotten into.
  • Clint's Hurdles
    (obstacle 27) What a way to finish! Friends and family will cheer you on as you try to make it over this giant hurdle. Hopefully you have some stilts to make it over!

Marathon on the Mountain | Saturday, November 1, 2014

Marathon on the Mountain will both challenge and inspire you while you run through the beautiful mountain terrain at Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Saturday, November 1, 2014.

Choose the marathon or half marathon to get the distance that is right for you. Both races will take you past multiple ponds, along charming country lanes and through some of the most scenic woods in Pennsylvania. The courses utilize both ski trails and wooded hiking and biking paths that will take you deep into the forest. Minimal hard surfaces and very few road crossings are on the course, and multiple aid stations with water, Gatorade, and fruit will be featured.
