Adult contestants are competing for bragging rights, as well as a $1500.00 cash prize, all other age groups compete for medals, personal achievement and the adoration of the fans.
Patrick Hall; American Ninja Warrior contestant and owner of Hybrid Ninja Academy has designed a course that will test the limits of top competitors from all obstacle course disciplines. This multi-discipline obstacle course is an effort to unify all three major disciplines of the sport for at least one weekend each year. There is no other course in the world that combines all three iconic walls from their respective disciplines:
- The Ninja Warrior Warped Wall
- The Tough Mudder Everest wall
- The Spartan wall.
