The TreeRunner Ninja Relay Race is Grand Rapids Treetop Adventure Park‘s first ever competition designed to challenge teams of 4 climbers to see who can accomplish the fastest time through a specific course. The goal of the competition is to not only provide a means for climbers to test their physical ability, but to also raise money for charity – this year, we will be donating 25% of all proceeds to the West Michigan Environmental Action Coalition
Each team will have an opportunity to practice on the courses in the morning before getting a chance to compete in their respective time slots in the afternoon. Then, the teams will strategically pick which members will be timed while climbing through the select course. The combined time it takes your team to complete the four courses constitutes your race time! The top three teams will compete to secure their spot at TreeRunner Ninja Team Champion! Cash prizes are available for the winning teams!
- First place team will win $500.00 in cash, 4 TreeRunner T-Shirts, and 4 season passes for the 2018 season.
- Second place team will win $200.00 in cash, 4 TreeRunner T-Shirts, and 8 free adult tickets for the 2018 season.
- Third place will win 4 custom TreeRunner T-shirts and 4 free adult tickets for the 2018 season
The entry fee for each team is $200 per team. This includes the practice time at the beginning of the day, and your race time the day of! We are recommending this experience for ages 12 and up!
An Adventure Park is a combination of suspended obstacles above the forest floor like bridges, cargo nets, swinging logs, rings, skateboards and ziplines. Climbers stay securely clipped in with the self-guided, double-clip Clic-it climbing system on the course. The courses range in difficulty from ridiculously easy to very difficult, similar to ski resorts with green, blue, and black runs. For this event, we will be using two of our easier courses (Pink and Green) and two of our medium level courses (Blue and Purple). The finals round will be through our Double Black loop.
