2x Olympian Nick Symmonds Launches the ‘Impossible Obstacle Course’ Competition with a Grand Prize of $25,000

February 6, 2023

What might be the toughest and most strategically designed obstacle course in the country comes with a big cash reward for the athlete that can complete it first.


Eugene, Oregon – February 6, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Nick Symmonds, 2x Olympian in Track & Field, is on a mission to find the strongest, most well-rounded athlete in the world – and reward them with $25,000. Symmonds is the mastermind behind the new Impossible Obstacle Course that’s designed to test athletes in seven unique ways. The first person to complete the course will win a grand prize of $25,000.

Whether you want to compete for yourself, or follow along to watch the action unfold, Symmonds will release episodes weekly to document the challenge via his YouTube channel @NickSymmonds800 starting March 3.

“I spent three months and over $100,000 building this obstacle course,” said Symmonds. “As a pro runner, I learned that when there is cash and glory on the line, it can motivate us to do incredible things. I want to give that same experience to my audience. We say our videos are all about having fun with fitness, and what’s more fun than an epic obstacle course?”

The Impossible Obstacle Course competition begins the first week of March at a secret location in Eugene, Oregon, and will run every weekend until a winner is announced. It’s free to sign up, and open to the public to compete and try for the title. Exact dates, time and location are available exclusively in the Nick Symmonds App. The app is free to download at NickSymmondsFitApp.com.
