Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Montana Warrior Challenge being held August 26th in the east Helena, MT valley. This event is unlike any other in Montana with the testing of personal and team communication, physical, mental, and leadership skills. The team aspect allows for developing camaraderie between all participants and reflects some of the activities that the smallest units of military organizations participate in. It is encouraged that teams are built with peers; however, in the event an individual does not have a team, Impact Montana will work with individual registered participants to get them on a team that will allow them to participate.
The event itself will consist of a mock military-style training environment with 15-20 different types of obstacles. Examples of obstacles may include, but are not limited to: steep hill rope climbs; large tire obstacles/stations; haystack pyramid climbs; low-crawling station; paintball/airsoft target shooting; pull-up stations or monkey bars; mud hill climb; culvert crawls; rope walls; and heavy weight pull/carry. Along with the obstacles, there will be navigation and distance between stations.
The start times will be staggered for teams, with teams getting their “operation order “ 15-30 minutes prior to their specific start time. It will then be the teams’ objective to discuss the course map and information in the operation order to determine their course of action within the limitations of the event.
The Montana Warrior Challenge is meant to be a fun and team building event. It is not required for anyone to have military experience as there will not be anything too difficult to accomplish for those without military experience. It is highly advisable that all participants are in proper conditioning to be able to navigate the course. Although the intent of this event is to compete as a team, teams assisting other teams is not discouraged. The top ten finishing teams will be posted on the Montana Warrior Challenge Board for the entire year (on website after the event). The course will be approximately 4-5 miles in length and will consist of both cardiovascular and muscular fitness. This event is the flagship event for the Montana Warrior Run Circuit.
This year there will again be two categories: Warrior and Municipal. The Warrior category will be for the teams who are interested in competing for the rights to take home the Impact Montana guidon; an the Municipal category is for teams simply interested in building cohesion and having a fun time—while supporting a great cause.
