The 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum is hosting what will become an annual feature of its family-focused programming – the Junior Obstacle Race Challenge.

The track, which varies from half a mile to 2 miles depending on the age of the participants, features a dozen child-friendly obstacles, coming to a delightfully muddy finish with the Mud Run.

Starting things off on the Low Wall, participants will flex their upper body strength to get to the other side and practice their balance on the Steppingstone station.

Crawling through Tunnels is next to develop gross motor skills, improve spatial awareness, and engage in imaginative play. Balance is back in focus on Balance Beams of varied height. The Net Crawl will then challenge participants’ strength and coordination as they drop to the ground and crawl quickly under the net to reach the other side. Quick footwork will be in demand to master the two following stations of accurately speeding through Speed Tire Hurdles and climbing up and down A-Frames. Getting high off the ground on the Apex Ladder and Climbing Obstacles will get participants through to the best part of the course – the Mud Run. Dodging Panels might help shake off some of the cakey goodness, but it’s best to have towels at the ready when the course comes to an end.

The event will take place in Aspire Park near Burgeri Restaurant.
