Ryan and I wanted to go on a date that was a little out of the ordinary. The typical dinner date or movie night just wasn’t cutting it! We’re a very adventurous, outdoorsy couple so what better than TreeRunner Adventure Parks? It was time to experience the outdoors like never before from up in the trees!
With varying difficulty levels, courses and elements, TreeRunner Raleigh provide an experience that coworkers, families, and friends can enjoy together. No prior climbing experience is necessary. Obstacles at TreeRunner are designed to challenge climbers both mentally and physically.
TreeRunner Adventure Parks do not feature just one single aerial treetop trail but a variety of color-coded aerial trails of differing challenge levels, beginner through expert. Climbers choose their trail depending on their age and/or climbing experience. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees which are connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form crossings of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the park's "always locked on" system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails, climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session. TreeRunner Raleigh Adventure Park is located on the campus of the Jewish Community Center of Raleigh at 12804 Norwood Rd. The Park is now open for the climbing season and reservations are available for climbing and group appointments. TreeRunner Parks was founded in 2015 by a team of Michigan entrepreneurs. Their current holdings include two locations in Michigan and one in North Carolina. The fourth location is currently under construction on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. This site is expected to open in the Summer of 2019.
