about cahoots
extreme duo challenge

The Cahoots Duo Challenge is a race series where you and a friend combine wits, strength, strategy and stamina to negotiate a barrage of nearly two dozen unique obstacles and challenges.

All Cahoots courses have been specifically and creatively designed to prove the resolve and test the limits of even the toughest of twosomes. You'll carry, push, pull and roll one another over and through a variety of perils and hazards. You'll swing over energy sapping bogs on the Siamese Trapese, build precarious bridges, and scale 10' walls.

You'll have to rely on each other, trust each other, and work together. If you can't hack it, don't worry about it. We'll have EMTs, mediation and divorce attorneys standing by.

Registration FAQ

The Cahoots Duo Challenge is a race series where you and a friend combine wits, strength, strategy and stamina to negotiate a barrage of nearly two dozen unique obstacles and challenges. Most of the obstacles require two people working together to make it through, so all participants will participate in teams of two.

The Prison Break Event is our nighttime version of the Cahoots Classic with a prison theme. With our venue literally yards away from an actual working prison, we thought this would enhance the experience.

We'll have real cops "processing" the "prisoners," bonfires, new obstacles inspired after actual prison breaks from history, and an awesome after party. You won't want to miss this one.

Early registration starts at $80 per TEAM and increases as the event date approaches, so you will want to register early to get the best deal! You can also take advantage of discounts and special offers by liking us on Facebook.

NOTE: Register as a larger team (multiple duos under the same team name) and get an automatic 15% discount. (May register one individual at a time and add team members anytime during the registration window- however, you MUST have an even number of runners on race day, or you will not be able to complete most of the obstacles.)
