King of the Mountain, a 5k Obstacle Run, returns Sat., Sept. 19 at Mt. Holiday in Traverse City. The course was designed and built by the U.S. Army 182nd Transportation Group in TC to be "challenging but not impossible."
According to organizers, the event is appropriate for both men and women of average physical capabilities all the way up to elite athletes, with the "sights and sounds of a real military-style obstacle course."
New this year is the Young Warriors obstacle course with all proceeds benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan.
