March 4th, 2014 For Immediate Release: 3rd Ultimate Towner Obstacle Course Race celebrates overcoming personal obstacles and benefits Habitat for Humanity Sunday, May 11, 2014 – Mother’s Day – Jackson, WY Whether you’ve been through a difficult relationship, experienced that “not if but when” acl surgery or some other physical ailment, had a business or finance challenges or yes, lost someone close, we’ve all dealt with life’s curve-balls. Luckily, we live in one of the greatest communities on the planet where we rally around and support each other even in the most difficult of struggles.

We’re in this together! And the “why” behind the Ultimate Towner is about celebrating our personal tribulations, triumphs and our connections that keep us keeping on. Last year our Jackson event was dedicated to the late, great Jarad Spackman and his messages of Being Bold, Taking the Plunge and Loving Life are stronger than ever. In fact, our theme of not only Overcoming Your Obstacles, but CELEBRATING overcoming your obstacles is the driving force. When we move through difficulty, we have plenty of reason to celebrate,” says to Tim Walther, course director, about the purpose, or the “why” behind the Ultimate Towner Obstacle Course Race. The “what” of the event is a positive, fun and healthy community experience.

The “why” is what give us the inspiration to put these events on and it’s the reason Towners are invited to share in the experience.

The “Tough Tower,” now re-branded as the Ultimate Towner, began in Jackson Hole has traveled around the country through Ohio, Lake Placid, Syracuse and San Francisco delivering dun and inspiration. If you have been to a Towner, you know that celebrating overcoming obstacles comes in uniquely fun fashion. On Sunday, May 11th Towners will make their way through Jackson town parks and experience inspirational obstacles including the now “classic” Ultimate Elevation warm up, Karma Mud Crawl, Believe-Achieve Hurdles, Take The Plunge Rope Swing, Motivational Mist Spray and the culminating Love-Life Wall.

“Young or old, short or tall, this event creates an opportunity to participants to challenge themselves to overcome things that initially may be perceived as difficult or even impossible,” says Matt Campana, Streetsboro Ohio Course Director and collaborator in the Towner events across the country.

“Do as much as you can, and have a blast doing it!” says Will Leggett who is the lead course-builder and part of the team of Towners who work together to create and deliver each experience.

Some participants even ride bikes to the various obstacles on the course, making it easier for even more participants and teams.
