❍ REQUIRED PAPERWORK: Two forms (Participant Agreement & Health Form) are required for participation and should be submitted prior to the day of your event. If a participant is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian signature is required. You can download them HERE.


❍ CLOSED-TOED SHOES ARE REQUIRED. Preferably tennis shoes. Keens are acceptable, but NO Crocs, no Chaco’s, no soccer sandals, no ballet flats, no flip flops. There is too high of a risk to trip, losing a shoe while climbing, or puncturing an exposed foot with a stick while walking.


❍ FILLED WATER BOTTLE (x2 or 3 on particularly warm days). Participants are often surprised at how thirsty they become while on the course. It is important to arrive hydrated and stay hydrated.


❍ PERSONAL MEDICATIONS: Inhalers, EpiPens, allergy, or other meds are always helpful to have on hand and acknowledge on your waiver. If you are under 18 coming with a group, this should be addressed with the responsible adult chaperone/leader of your group. Stowe Heights supplies a first aid kit, however, does not supply inhalers & EpiPens.


❍ COMFORTABLE LAYERED CLOTHING for a variety of temperatures and conditions. Modest shorts (inseam to mid-thigh or knee) if not long breathable pants or leggings that work better under a harness.

❍ HATS OR VISORS optional – While the trees do provide a reprieve from the sun, you’re still exposed to it. Wearing a hat or visor can be helpful and it fits well underneath a helmet.

PRO TIPS: Avoid long, dangling accessories that could get stuck somewhere along the obstacle course. This includes items such as hoop earrings, long necklaces, scarves, and bracelets. 


If you have long hair, be sure to tie it back and tie it low so that it can fit under a helmet. Hair is notorious for getting stuck in the ropes and along the cables, hence the importance of tying it back. A high bun or ponytail will not fit under helmets.


❍ LUNCH and/or SNACKS should be discussed with your group leader in situations where it is included.
