An epic 1-mile Ninja Warrior obstacle course is coming to Tampa


Does your kid have what it takes to be a ninja warrior? Odds are the answer is yes. The youth in the Tampa Bay area carry a near never ending supply of energy, and soon an obstacle course will provide them with a super fun physical challenge. Introducing Conquer Youth Young Lions Obstacle Course.

This epic mile long course features 10 obstacles for participants to get past. Ages 5-17 are welcome to give it their best shot on the course. It will be all set up on the University of Tampa campus at 401 West Kennedy Boulevard on April 13. Waves start in 20 minute increments beginning at 9am.

Obstacles suited for all ages and heights

Through March 10 it costs just $45 to register for the event. Registration costs jump to $55 after that point. Click here to learn more and to register.

This is an alcohol-free event. Food and drink vendors will be on site for spectators to enjoy.

Can all ages handle the obstacles ahead?

The minds behind the event have crafted obstacles for different heights and age.

Helping to build healthier, fitter families

“Our obstacles have separate lanes for the taller, older children and for the younger, smaller children,” said the organizers. “Adults are always welcome to run alongside their children to assist and take photos!”

Conquer Youth has partnered with Shape Up US, a company helping to fight childhood obesity by empowering kids and families to lead healthier lives, for the event.

The course itself is ten times more fun than a video game and we hope to see more health-centric events like this come to the city of Tampa.
