My wife, Duyen, took on the “X-run” obstacle course earlier this month. This event featured 12 obstacles and a 2.2 km run, and about 150 participants. Runners had to run about 1.5 km, then negotiate a bunch of physical obstacles by climbing over/under/through them, swinging across adult monkey bars, and finally trudging through a giant tub of ice water.

A final rinse off after crossing the finish line. Though she didn’t really train for this event, she was one of the only women to complete the course unassisted. This event was fun for our family and hopefully we’ll get it do another obstacle run again soon.
Here’s my video of the event – mostly shot with my headband camera:
