Race Description

A “Night Op” or “Night Ops” is a standard term used by SEALs defining the general timeline of an operation, be it training or real world. SEALs are friends of the darkness and embrace it’s cloaking advantage. Things change at night… trees whisper differently, creatures eyes fill the trail, nature’s nighttime orchestra at times is sensory deafening. Can you conquer the night?

Tough, hilly, mountainous, rope climbs, natural and man made obstacles. Two-lap twilight into night duration. Difficult climbs, fast and dangerous descents. Some off trail single track in the bush. Pond crossings. 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 ponds 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? Email: or Just call Dan (423)200-9935
NOTE: Each participant MUST have a headlamp or other light source to start the race! Headlamps are available at local retail stores for $10 and up!
