I work for a framing contractor who does residential framing. Yesterday a crew got subbed out to help a general contractor build an obstacle course for a fun run. Some we built new and others we put back together from last year. It is a 6.8 mile run spread out over 420 acres of farmland. Of course I didn't have a camera, but I found a few pics from last years run. 

 

There will be a few muddy spots to add to the thrill.

Here is a wall that we get to do on Monday. 12' high with a 2x at 4' and 8' to climb onto to get up and over.

This is the rat trap from last year that we put back together. Made it bigger and tougher to get crawl thru.

yep, that's what I call fun run - when I'm sitting beside the course, drinking a beer...

I might have to try them out next week. I don't think I will try to run the whole course. Maybe drive to each obstacle. :D  Just looking at some of these that were built already, makes me feel fat and out of shape. I don't think I could do the whole course.

Uh, f r a m i n g. Just a switch of the R..... We put up the frame of a house. And don't touch any finish components inside or out.

Got worried for a minute and had to go back and check my spelling. :D

It does benefit a children's charity, I forget what it is called now. Mostly it is an endurance run, both mentally and physically.
