Race Description

Up before the dawn and running for a morning “first light” start. “First light” and “last light” are military terms that are often used as markers for strategic advantage or bewitching hours for SEALs to be off target. We are changing up a traditional trail run as we give runners a unique break of dawn start time!

Tough, hilly, mountainous, rope climbs, natural and man made obstacles. Single-lap first light, early morning event. Difficult climbs, fast and dangerous descents. Some off trail single track in the bush. Shallow stream and pond crossings/hiking. This is not smoke and mirrors, it’s the real deal.

Runners continually rank the difficulty of our SEAL events FAR beyond other popular adventure races. This is not smoke and mirrors…this is no hype… this is the real deal. Pre-registration field is limited to 200… you are not just a number, or one in a thousand or so runners with us… you become family at this one of a kind event. Hosted, developed, and managed by a career retired US Navy SEAL. 65 private acres of jeep, ATV, and hiking trails wind participants through woods, up across mountain tops, slog runners through creeks and up against natural and man made obstacles. This continues to be a course like no other, and we change it up EVERY time we host an event. Never the same course twice! Come prepared to get dirty, wet, muddy, sweaty, and tired! Have questions?
