What Is The Wild Boar Challenge?

The Wild Boar Challenge is an off road obstacle course designed to push participants through a series of challenges that will test both their speed and agility as they navigate through the course. This is THE LOCAL RACE, that is run by a local organization that will not only raise funds that stay in central Iowa, but will also let the participants contribute to design of multiple obstacles. Contributors Breakfast Club is excited to host a fun and challenging event that will attract a wide range of participants from all over Iowa.

Full Course

The course covers just over 5 miles at the Wildwood Hills Ranch and features a number of difficult and exciting obstacles that participants will have to navigate (hay bales, mud, barbed wire, etc.) in some of the most beautiful and hilly terrain in central Iowa. Past obstacles have included the "Pig Prod," "Big Bad Wolf," "Saucy Sow and the "Drill Sergeant".

Will I get wet / dirty / muddy?

Probably, yes and yes. The WBC course is designed by the folks at Farrell’s Extreme Body Shaping so you can imagine it might present a bit of a challenge.


Who Does The Wild Boar Benefit?

The charities that the CBC Foundation choose to support are smaller, central Iowa charities that are devoted to making the lives of children and young people better. This year’s race will continue our support for a charity we’ve had a long-term relationship with, the Wildwood Hills Ranch. This organization has a mission to provide life-changing opportunities and camp programs for at-risk and disadvantaged children, right here in Central Iowa.

Presented By The Contributors Breakfast Club

The Contributors’ Breakfast Club was founded in 1987. It is an organization focused on charitable work, reciprocity and social activities. In 2003, the CBC Foundation was created to formalize the charitable aspect. Over its 21-year history, the Contributors’ Breakfast Club has raised nearly $1,000,000 for central Iowa charities. This charitable endowment is a donor-advised fund of the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation.
