Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
This will be the first event created by Fearless Events, it will proudly be held at beautiful Amelia Earhart Park in Miami, Florida. “We’re proud to hold our first event in the rugged but beautiful setting at Amelia Earhart Park. Miami is a world class, vibrant city that is known for living a healthy lifestyle and outdoor recreation. As a local company we believe it’s a natural fit that ‘The Challenge’ begins in Miami,” said Garfield Griffiths CEO of Fearless Events Fla, Inc., The Challenge’s parent company. Amelia Earhart Park features a large freshwater (alligator free) lake, acres of lush open space and offers various recreational attractions such as mountain bike trails and fishing.
This is not your typical mud run, yes The Challenge, is a five mile flat / trail run that includes the usual staples, such as, mud (of course), military grade obstacles, a lake swim, hidden underground mud tunnels, knife throwing and other intense but fun, physical challenges. However, the five-mile course that will surely test seasoned mud run veterans and amaze first timers alike will also include logic puzzles, brainteasers and a very special “electrifying” challenge named The Zapper.
This is all to ensure that brains, as well as brawn, get a work out, and that is not all, as the team behind the Challenge have created a one of a kind “super obstacle” which is a combination of about 7 major obstacles (rope climb, monkey bars, Tarzan swing and leap of faith, all into once 150ft long elimination obstacle. If participants conquer this monster they get to face the final challenge, and it is time to see who is truly fearless. The final “challenge” is a secret though and will remain so until race day. After completing the race competitors can reward themselves with a welcome free beer, those of drinking age of course!
“The Challenge is an opportunity for people to push themselves physically and mentally by facing different challenges; this is truly like no other mud run on earth. We’re honored to donate a portion of the proceeds to the National Voices for Equality Education & Enlightenment (NVEEE) to support the organization’s good work in the fight against bullying, an issue that continues to challenge children and adults in the U.S. and around the globe,” added Griffiths.
