The Origins of UrbanWarrior
Kris and Jonah have been friends for over 30 years. Kris enjoyed obstacle course training at a young age from his experience in the military. Jonah has always been an adrenaline junky and developed his own form of training he called Rambo running - bobbing and weaving through trees at the park, climbing up and over jungle gyms, doing push-ups and pull-ups at different stations... because it was fun!
Flash forward (about ten years ago), they began hosting adventure runs on the waterfront of downtown Portland Oregon that they later called "Urban Warrior" runs. They enhanced a 3 mile run by creating obstacles off of their surroundings. To their surprise, their small group of three grew to twenty + people for these adventure runs. They saw the community that they were building and knew they were on to something special. Now, Kris and Jonah are dedicated to improving the lives of others through FUN functional fitness!
