The Wolfpack Ninjas
The Wolfpack Ninja Tour, a partnership between the Wolfpack Ninjas and GF Capital Events, will kick off April 29th-30th, 2017 in Denver University’s Magness Arena. The event will be the Wolfpack Ninja Tour’s first ever large-scale competition in which competitors from across the country will compete on a professional obstacle course for over $30,000 in cash prizes. A portion of profits will go to charity and all comers are welcome to try their hand at the course and the multitude of Ninja obstacles present at the event. This event will be the first family-fun showcase operated by the Wolfpack Ninjas, who had their media debut on NBC’s hit TV show series American Ninja Warrior.
President of the Wolfpack Ninjas & Wolfpack Ninja Tour, Dr. Noah Kaufman states: “This is a chance for the sport to legitimize, and for all Ninjas out there to have a shot at the course and a Ninja Sport profession. It’s also a chance for us to make a real impact, get kids active and put them on the right path towards living a healthy lifestyle.” Spectators are welcome to come and watch as ninjas from all over the country compete in the Finals Competition which is a head-to-head style racing format. One male and one female will be crowned champion of the event, with scaled payouts to the Top 10 finalists. The “First American Ninja Warrior”, Geoff Britten & Stuntwoman Superstar Jessie Graff are captains and representatives of the Wolfpack Ninja Tour. The Pro-Team is joined by team-mates Flip Rodriquez, Weatherman Joe Moravsky, Parkour Master Jesse La Flair, Nicholas Coolridge, Travis Brewer, Jennifer Tavernier, JJ Woods, Veteran hero Ryan Stratis, She Wolf Meagan Martin, Brian Arnold, Wolf Pup Ian Dory and the Ninjadoc Noah Kaufman, MD—the rest of the Wolfpack Ninjas. Watch the pros race for glory and cash prizes with your family.
Athletes of all levels, as well as avid TV fans, will be able to enjoy the weekend as both athletes competing and as spectators watching the Finals Competition. Although the Finals Competition will take place on Sunday afternoon, the remainder of the event is open for registration wherein competitors can qualify for the Finals Competition. Additionally, the event offers group and personal training opportunities with your favorite professional Ninjas. There will also be an opportunity to buy a Total Weekend VIP experience which includes photos and autographs with Top Ninja Pros as well as behind-the-scenes hangout time and racing instruction from all the Pros. According to Pro-Team captain Geoff Britten, “This is going to be really, really big and is exactly what was needed for our sport.”
The Wolfpack Ninja Tour welcomes athletes from ages 4 and up to train, get active, and gain confidence through completing the Ninja obstacles and numerous activity stations. Amateur Ninjas with backgrounds in climbing, parkour, endurance sports, as well as athletes from more traditional sports, will have the chance to test themselves and qualify throughout the weekend for a spot in the Finals Competition where they will compete head-to-head for over $30,000 in cash prizes. The event will also include two “college-night” sessions, on Saturday April 29th from 8pm-10pm and 10pm-12am, where the Wolfpack Ninja Tour invites students from across Colorado to come take their best shot at qualifying for the Finals Competition.
Located in downtown Denver, Magness Arena is easily accessible via light rail, bus, bike, or car. “We are extremely excited to announce a partnership between the Wolfpack Ninja Tour and the University of Denver to host all of the Top Pro Ninjas on our University of Denver campus and within our Ritchie Center facilities leading up to the April event” says Stuart Halsall, Associate Vice Chancellor of Athletics and Recreation, “This event has the potential to make a real impact within the University of Denver community in a highly entertaining way. It falls in line with the Ritchie Center’s vision to offer championship caliber experiences through events such as the Wolfpack Ninja Tour that reach DU students, Alumni, and Community friends and fans of all ages.” The Wolfpack Ninjas will be offering exclusive training opportunities both privately and at the Ritchie Center in the months prior to the event in April.
Participants and spectators should register for competition waves and buy tickets for kid’s classes and the Finals Competition online at www.wolfpackninjatour.com. Pre-Event registrants will be given a first look into the challenges the obstacle course presents and will be offered unique insight and training tips from the Wolfpack Ninjas on how to best prepare for the event.
ABOUT THE WOLFPACK NINJA TOUR
The Wolfpack Ninja Tour was created to get our kids healthy and inspire them. With a portion of profits going to charities that seek to impact childhood obesity, the Wolfpack Ninja Tour is seeking to make a difference. The Ninja community and top Ninja professionals are deeply involved in the project and will be present at the event to teach children life-skills, confidence and to educate them about the importance of proper nutrition and academics. The Top Ninjas are signed up, and the Pro Team will be leading the charge against the childhood obesity epidemic. With over $30,000 in cash prizes per event, Wolfpack Ninja Tour also seeks to legitimize the sport of Ninja Obstacle Racing and provide professional opportunities for its talented athletes.
