Brave Your Adventure with Kids Obstacle Challenge
Teaching and modeling to our kids the value of fitness is something that families should strive to do, but getting them to WANT to do it can be even harder when the average attention span is eight seconds! Technology provides humans with that instant gratification. Even though we know there is life beyond the screen, pulling ourselves and our kids away from the temptation of a device can be so hard. Even though we KNOW we need that physical fitness in our lives to keep our bodies healthy, how do we get our kids to buy in? How do we get our kids to WANT to run? WANT to walk? WANT to get physically fit?
As a teacher, I know when I make my lessons fun, they are more likely to engage! As role models, we have to show them that it is fun! If we make it look like some laborious activity that we dread doing, we are not going to win them over. They need to see us live in the moment and enjoy it. They have to see that it brings true happiness!
Here are some easy ways to make it fitness fun at home.
Set up an obstacle course in your backyard or at a playground
Plan a Scavenger Hunt Run
Plan a nighttime run in PJs or a flashlight run.
Play some simple games Red Light, Green Light, Simon Says, Capture the Flag, Sharks & Minnows
Three ticket options are available for the Kids Obstacle Challenge.
The Razor Competitive Wave is for kids ages 10-16 only (sorry, parents, you’ll have to sit out of the competitive wave, but you may join your kids if they decide to re-run in an open non-competitive wave after their race).

Competitors will be chip timed, receive a custom Razor Competitive Wave race medal, and the top three finishers in each age division will receive an award from Razor! PLUS run in unlimited open non-competitive waves with (or without) your parents for only $5!

One of the goals of Kids Obstacle Challenge (KOC) is to help create family bonds and give families a chance to overcome obstacles together. As a mother, I love it when a companies goal aligns with my very own. Life is full of challenges, and how we go about handling those is watched by our children whether we realize it or not. Our kids are only with a short time. We need to seize the opportunity we have to create memories that will last a lifetime. I can’t think of a better gift to give my children than the gift of fitness. If we help our children fall in love with fitness with they are young, we are helping them to place value on something that will benefit them in the long run.
