The Altius Ninja Run follows all of the gym's normal safety protocols. Masks are strongly recommended for all unvaccinated participants and spectators.
There are two courses, the Points Course and the Skill Course. The Points Course (Course 1) has 12 Obstacles with a total of 50 points, while the Skill Course (Course 2) has 10 Obstacles that total 60. Participants have to go in a specific skill order and will have 4 minutes for each course.
Most elements remain the same for all age groups. Adjustments to heights and distances will be made depending on the age group.
This course is an “all or nothing” scoring set-up. Children will have one chance to try each element. If they accomplish the skill, they receive the points. If they do not accomplish the skill, they receive zero points and move on to the next element. Winners are determined by the most points scored. Time is used as a tie-breaker, with the fastest time winning.
This course is worth 60 points, with a 4:00 time limit and a speed tie-breaker. Most skills award partial points based on the degree of completion.
Awards will be presented at the end of the event on the front floor.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals are given for each age group on each course. Groups with 9 or more participants also give out medals to 4th place. Time is the tie-breaker for both courses.
Honorable mention ribbons are given to all other participants.
All students will receive a copy of their scorecard.
