Event Description

Test out both your brains and your brawn at Grit 'N Wit - an outdoor obstacle course designed to challenge you both physically and intellectually. Accommodations are available if desired. So, grab some friends and register a team of 2-6 people and race your way around campus, starting and ending at Dillon Gym! 

What is Grit N Wit?

The average race has 16 obstacles and ranges in length. Grit obstacles test your strength, balance, agility, and coordination, and include Rise Over Run, Over Under Through, and Traverse. Wit puzzles challenge your memory, problem-solving, spatial awareness, and even math skills.
