This will be a very challenging but entertaining 12-14 hour non-stop event. My goal is to combine strenuous Mid-Western farm chores with military boot camp, trail running, strongman training, basic survival skills and whatever else somewhat punishing but enjoyable I can come up with. I would strongly suggest you get proficient at all the Military PT Tests & Standards. Think of it as Conan the Barbarian meets Full Metal Jacket with a dash of Deliverance mixed in for fun!haha...
You may want to get familiar with shooting a shotgun, baling or carrying hay, digging graves/fox holes, carrying all kinds of heavy stuff. I would also recommend going to a pig or calf scramble at the local fair. Plus get familiar with the effects of pepper spray!haha...Again these are all just possibilities and the actual tasks will not be revealed until you encounter them the event.
Base camp will be your tent in a hay field. You are allowed a limited crew due to the size of these small country roads. No RVs or buses please! You are not allowed to sleep once the event begins. There will be no showers and you will have to bathe in the local creek.
