Competition Format

Be part of history by competing in the first ever Iowa Games Ninja Warrior Competition! This event is hosted by Ninja U in Cedar Falls and sanctioned by UNAA. Athletes won’t know exactly what the course will be until the day of the event. The course is designed by Ninja U course designers and veteran athletes in line with the Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association (UNAA) for the best ninja experience possible.

Each contestant will get to run a course with 10-15 obstacles and you get one retry if you fail on a given obstacle. Each obstacle you complete gives you one point and the retry also counts as a point so if you don’t use it you get the bonus point. Whoever gets the most points in the fastest time wins!

The day will start with the youngest age group first, then on up from there.
Specific start times for each age group still to be determined based on number of contestants.

Open gym is available for anyone who wants to try the obstacles before the competition
