In many ways, adventure races and obstacle courses are like popular HBO shows. What do we mean by that? We’re talking about spoilers. Spoiler alert, guys: some people don’t like spoilers. It spoils their fun, and removes any sense of surprise from the thing they’ve been anticipating. On the flip-side, some people don’t mind spoilers. These people are the people you hear about who will read the final page of a book before buying it, just to make sure that the ending is to their liking.
Why are we talking about spoilers? We’re talking about them because we’re about to serve you up multiple bowls of spoiler-flavoured broth. So if you’ve got an obstacle course event on the horizon but just can’t stand the not-knowing any longer, here’s some of the obstacles you’ll probably be facing.
