HERE IT IS… The Freak’n Map 2017!


Freak’n Farmers are tough… They’re tough from freak’n farm work… They’re tough from haul’n tomato buckets’n onion sacks… They’re tough from plow’n the fields… Throw’n hay bails… Trench’n through the mud…

All obstacles for The Freak’n Farmer will be “covert” until your race briefing. This year there will be 3 courses available, one covering 5K, one 12kms and a new distance of 20K. The 5K course will cover 10 obstacles, the 10K with 18 obstacles and the 20K with 23 obstacles.

Watch here for obstacle training tips from our CrossFit Trainer at Penticton CrossFit.

Expect the weather to be VERY HOT SUMMER CONDITIONS and we will keep you updated as the race draws nearer. It may be cool in the morning but the temperature will rise drastically! See the Oliver weather forecast.
Note: Due to weather conditions, local burn bans, and other restrictions, it is possible that the course may change and that some obstacles may be altered or removed completely.


The course is designed to be very difficult and the terrain is at times muddy, slippery, and potentially dangerous. You may be wet from the start line! If you do not feel comfortable completing any obstacle, DO NOT attempt it; simply continue on to the next obstacle.


At 2:30 PM, all participants who have not reached the ½ way mark will be escorted off the course by the First-Aid team.

There will be drinking water at four different locations throughout the course. Participants are encouraged to supplement this with personal hydration systems as well.

Heat sheets will be available throughout the course and at the Finish Area

The weather in the South Okanagan is currently VERY HOT. It may be cool in the morning but the temperature will rise drastically! See the Oliver weather forecast.

Normal running shoes. We DO NOT recommend you buying new shoes for this event; shoes get muddy, because you are running through the mud. We also DO NOT recommend barefoot shoes.
*Gloves and hat

*Warm/dry clothing to change into after the race.

*Hydration system. Note: Again, there will be 4 water stations throughout the course.

*Costumes and anything creative.

*BYO Lawn Chair for the after party!

What NOT to wear:

You CANNOT wear spikes or cleats during the event. There will be an inspection at the Start line!

We DO NOT recommend barefoot shoes!! (See course map and think Cactus Climb!)


If you registered under the competitive category, your time will be recorded and posted here on our website. It will also be available at the Finish line. If you entered in the recreational category you can check your own time at the finish line, however we will not be keeping track for you.
If you choose to skip an obstacle as a competitive participant, you will be given a 5 minute time penalty. If you are caught cheating you will be given a DNF (Did Not Finish,, aka,, Dam Naughty Farmer)

Awards will be given for top men, women and teams in the competitive category. There will also be awards given for best costume, best team name, “most spirited” team and more…

Freak’n Farmer branded apparel brought to you exclusively by ECM. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.


The Great food and Wine tastings brought to you by the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association at the Finish line are a key component of the Freak’n Farmer experience. We will have our band performing throughout the afternoon. Enjoy a glass of Okanagan’s finest and watch participants as they slide across the finish line! We will of course also have beer and food available!


Spectators are welcome! There are many areas around the course to watch the debauchery of the day!

We are asking a minimum donation of $5 to spectate the event. 50% of the proceeds go to the South Okanagan’s Children Hospital!
