The Backwoods Survivor Obstacle Course Challenge 5K

About This Activity

For all you runners and health fitness fans, you'll love the atmosphere at the Ranch of Lonesome Dove. Actually, it's not a ranch at all, but a manicured property bordering Lake Grapevine with a 14,400 sq. ft. spectacular structure for special events, a gazebo, softball (or soccer) field, fishing ponds, and a kids' playground.

Adjoining the Ranch is 52 wooded acres that have been transformed into an off-road 5K Run, plus an Army-approved obstacle course that features hurdles, ropes, barricades, nets, tires, baled hay, fences, walls, and logs for conditioning drills and guerilla exercises. It's the ideal setting for a 5K Run, Obstacle Course, Mud Run, or Triathlon--and a great way for youth and adults to stay fit, have fun, and support a worthy cause--all at the same time!


The 5K Run in the Backwoods Survivor Obstacle Course Challenge is not a timed run. It's designed to be a "Fun-Run," so take your time and enjoy the exercise and beautiful scenic woods!  

We've had some rain in the Southlake area, but the RACE is still ON! Come and enjoy the FUN!


 Your participation will be instrumental in providing a free educational tool with a Christian world-view that can enrich lives of every age, in every nation (see
