Texoma adventure seekers test their might in T.H.O.R.

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Texomans tested their might Saturday afternoon in a fun and grueling obstacle course in the hopes of VicTHORy in Lucy Park and it was all for a good cause.

Texoma's Hellacious Obstacle Run (T.H.O.R.) is all about having fun with friends and exercising to benefit North Texas organizations. It’s about a 5 km course with obstacles that started in Lucy Park and flowed along Wichita River, past the Falls, through Camp Fillers and finally back towards Lucy Park.

The adventure seekers went to Lucy Park to test their might in the obstacle course.

Some went in search of glory, others went for challenge themselves but some just wanted to have fun.

“Friends don’t let friends do stupid things on their own so here we are,” Kim Miller a T.H.O.R. expert said. “We’re here to run, get in the mud and play around.”

Miller did it before but her friends haven’t experienced the fun yet until today.

“She stupidly talked me into doing it this year with her whole team so here we are," Becky Lunsford a T.H.O.R. said.

But she wasn’t the only rookie on the course trying to finish many took heavy breaths as the crossed the finish line.

15-year-old Malick Dean championed through and finished the course in under 40 minutes thanks to cheerleading by his mom.

She said she was proud of me,” Dean said. “She said she's ‘happy I finished.’

Dean was all smiles when he held his medal and said he’s ready to do it again next year.

It's easy also to make friends with other people here,” Dean said. “When you run you into them, you just find a random group and you just make new friends."

T.H.OR. is not only one of Texoma's toughest courses but the money raised in the run benefits organizations like Wichita Falls Streams and Valleys as well as Leadership Wichita Falls (LWF).
