5k Obstacle Course Race

The Pineapple Classic 5k obstacle course race is a fun and challenging Hawaiian-themed event! Participants will be crawling, climbing, bouncing and bending to raise funds for blood cancer research and patient services. Each team is responsible for carrying a pineapple through the course without letting it touch the ground. Upon crossing the finish line, participants and sponsors are invited to join us for a luau complete with Hawaiian food, drinks and steel drums!

We invite your you and your entire family. Children 2-12 years old can join us at the Children's Obstacle Course which includes an inflatable bounce unit. We are working to expand the children's course in 2013.

If you've ever considered competing in an obstacle course race, this is the perfect opportunity! We have nearly 20 obstacles for partipatns to conquer throughout the 3.2 mile course.  You will get WET, you will get DIRTY, but most imporantly, you will have FUN! Visit www.pineappleclassic5k.org/wpa today.


The 2nd Annual Pineapple Classic 5k was a huge success.  On Saturday, September 15, 2012, nearly 500 participants joined us for this sold out event. Decked in Hawaiian apparel, individuals and teams raced through 14 obstacles over the 5k course at Hartwood Acres. The spirit and enthusiasm for the race and fundraising was inspiring; supporters and participants raised over $50,200 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We look forward to making the 2013 event even bigger and better!
