Water, fire, mud, heights and tunnels, this event has it all! This 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 30+ obstacles, some man-made and some natural, you will be challenged to survive the terrain. 
You and your firends will crawl like a crawfish through thick mud, train like a lifeguard in 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 and receive your free beer.  Stick around for the afterparty or make a weekend out of it and camp in the campgrounds.

Additional Information:

We are encouraging you to please car pool due to limited parking.  Camping reservations must be made online no later than the day before you wish to camp (if you wish to camp Friday night, reservations need to made on Thursday). All sites have electric and water.

For camping reservations, please visit Reserve America.

All runners will receive a race shirt, bib and a finishers medal.

This is a rain or shine event. No rain checks or refunds.

In partnership with the Marion County Animal Services, Silver Springs State Park presents an opportunity to make a difference in the life of a shelter dog. Every 4th Sunday, join volunteers and park staff as we walk a pack of well-behaved dogs through the park's gardens and trails. This program gives the animals exercise as well as a chance to socialize with other dogs and other people. All of the dogs are available for long-term adoption but you can also "adopt" a dog for the morning and take it for a walk with the group. For only a small amount of time you can make a huge difference in the life of a shelter animal. Hikers and walkers are welcome to join the group even if they do not want to hold a leash. Please note, only visitors 16 years or older may walk a shelter dog.

Additional Information:

Enter the park through the main entrance located at 5656 East Silver Springs Boulevard (State Road 40).
