On the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and heroism that followed, RISE Challenge Events, Strength Warehouse, and Central Oregon Shooting Association (COSA) are proud to present the second annual Battle of the High Desert, also known as Battle HD, on September 11, 2021.

This year’s theme for the event is “Never Forget” as the theme includes special challenges and obstacles to honor this solemn day.

The event is a combination of Strength and Skills followed by an Obstacle Course. This year we are excited to have Liberation Firearms Training joining us for a second shooting event. You can compete by individually to test yourself or team up with a buddy and work together and navigate some special obstacles honoring this day.

The Strength and Skills portion of the event will include deadlifts, overhead keg press, breaching a door with a shotgun and then shooting a target with a rifle, and a special “classified” challenge. After completing the first part of the event it is on to the Obstacle Course. Obstacles you may encounter are a 12-foot rope wall, an atlas stone carry, a teeter-totter, a drag and carry, and special 9/11 challenges. Your score will be an equal combination of both parts. All equipment including the guns and ammo are provided.

Help us honor this special day. Sign Up, Show Up, Rise Up!
