Presumably, you mean something very different from the many existing "test your skills" challenges such as the QOTW, Project Euler or even You walk in not knowing what the course will look like though you have a general idea based on previous episodes. Each stage is comprised of sub-tasks that must be completed before you can move on. You have a time limit. In other words, a true Ninja Warrior course.

I think this would work best at conferences - there is a YAPC::NA coming right up. You would be able to control access to external resources such as the internet. Unlike Ninja Warrior, everyone could participate simultaneously - at least at each stage. Complete an obstacle by submitting the result via some protocol and, if correct you get the next through the same protocol.

It seems like a lot of work but I would definitely sign up if someone else put forth the effort to design such a course.
