Day 3 at Top Truck Challenge 2014 began bright and early with competitors lining up at the bottom near the Challenger Camp to face off with the dreaded Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is a nasty 600-foot-long steep hill with an average angle of 60 degrees that features nasty holes and off-camber climbs near the top of the hill. This is one of the events that take’s major guts to attempt. Did we also mention that it’s covered in lots of loose dirt to really get the competitor’s blood pumping while attempting the seemingly impossible climb? To make things even more interesting, we give competitors five minutes to complete the entire course.

If that’s not enough of an adrenaline rush, we also make competitors square off against the Coal Chute before their nerves have fully settled down after hitting the hill climb. This year's Coal Chute used a section of the newly developed Upper Obstacle Course. We ran the Coal Chute for the first time at last year’s TTC and we’re not going to lie, it’s one of the toughest obstacles in TTC history. This new section is 525 miserable feet in length and features rock walls over seven feet high plus a collection of rocks and cement tubes. The Coal Chute is divided into three distinct sections and culminates in a cement water fall at the finish which was also dry this year. As with most of our events, fastest time through the course would take the bragging rights so we gave our Competitors 20 minutes to make it to the finish line.

Check out all the full throttle and rock bouncing action from Day 3 at Top Truck Challenge 2014!
