This 5 mile adventure will take you cross country through several Florida habitats and introduce you to the challenges of the "Real Florida". As you try to conquer the 25+ obstacles, some manmade and some natural, you will be challenged to survive the terrain. You will see mud like never before as you live like the wild animals of the Florida forests. Experience what it is like in a tortoise borough, crawl like a crawfish through thick mud, leap like a frog through the half acre pool, run through the woods like a panther and jump the fire line like a Wildland firefighter. This run will test your fears, push your abilities and give you a true sense of accomplishment as you cross the finish line with your friends.
