Tried out for Ninja Warrior but didn’t make the cut? Well, this month’s Ninja Parc Championships are giving you the chance to finally hit the buzzer.
Ninja Parc Newcastle is hosting the first national Ninja Parc Championships this month, giving locals the chance to compete against wannabe ninjas from across Australia.
Former Ninja Warrior, and Newcastle local, Jason ‘Saxy Ninja’ Mitchell, season six grand finalist Saxon Johnstone, season five semi-finalist Cam Mclintock and Townsville ninja Keziah Furnell will all join wannabe ninjas from as young as seven who are travelling from around Australia to compete at the Cooks Hill obstacle course as part of the event.
The Ninja Parc Championships’ course will feature many of the obstacles from the TV show including rope climbs, bouldering challenges, vertical and horizontal doors, a sea of poles and everyone’s favourite, the Warped Wall.
“It’s easy to see why ninja-style obstacle courses are so loved – they are a great individual challenge and you can also work together as a group to tackle the course,” Ninja Parc National Program Manager and Newcastle local Mitch Bird said.
“We look forward to welcoming challengers from around Australia for this inaugural event! We’re so excited that Newcastle gets to host the first Championship.
“The Ninja Parc concept was conceived in Newcastle 6 years ago by local John Pirlo, so it’s fitting that the first competition happens right here where it all started.”
The first national Ninja Parc Championships will be held at Ninja Parc on the corner of Darby and Tooke Streets on 26 November from 10 am. Spectators are welcome, visit ninjaparc.com.au to find out more.
