Grit N Wit is New England’s First Ever Mental and Physical Obstacle Course. Other obstacle course races test you physically, but that’s only half the challenge of Grit ‘N Wit. Grit ‘N Wit is not your typical obstacle course. Here, tough isn’t enough. Mental challenges and mind puzzles are spaced throughout the course. Quick wit is rewarded with shorter walls to climb and fewer obstacles to overcome. But don’t be fooled. With three plus miles of obstacles, you’ll still need your Wheaties. Brains and brawn. Bring it on!
In addition to providing individual competitors and teams with a uniquely challenging experience, Grit ‘N Wit aims to highlight regional assets and local vendors. The inaugural event will be held in Keney Park, one of New England’s largest parks, and entertainment will be provided by Ms. Kim and B.Davis of 89.9 WQTQ FM.
A portion of proceeds benefits the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation (FOJ), committed to improving the lives of children and families battling pediatric brain tumors. FOJ pairs children and families with local college and high school athletic teams to provide love, support, and friendship. Area teams include Connecticut College Men’s lacrosse, Trinity College Football, and University of Connecticut Field Hockey and Women’s Soccer.
