The Arc & the Field of Doom
Obstacle Course Race

Saturday, August 21, 2021

“We’re surrounded; the entire place is crawling with living things.” – Willie

“That’s why they call it the jungle, Sweetheart.” – Indiana Jones

Now while we don’t have the location crawling with living things (thank goodness!), we have still set out to make this like a jungle. This obstacle course race is family friendly, but don’t let it fool you! We’re here for a fun yet difficult course that encompasses the natural terrain at the venue, Nolichuckey River, man made obstacles plus much more that we will keep a secret until closer to time for the race. Some parts of the course however, will remain a mystery.
Where – Fender’s Farm (254 TN-107, Jonesborough)
When – August 21, 2021
Kids race 6 p.m. start time
2 mile OCR 6:30 p.m. start time

“Jock, start the engine!’ is Indy language for “Runners, go get registered!”

Volunteers Needed!

Obstacle course races are challenging to participate in but what happens behind the scenes is the real challenge. It takes hours and hours of man power to put these races together and race day requires several helpful individuals. If you aren’t able to participate and would like to help with this event or know someone who could use some volunteer or community service hours, please click the button and get signed up. The Arc Washington County puts in constant hours of work to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Let’s show them some support and give back to them!
