Our challenges are designed toward providing a taste of the mental and physical grit that Special Operations Forces, such as Green Berets, Rangers, and Navy Seals go through to become the World's Elite. We offer different levels of challenges so that everyone can participate and have a sense of accomplishment without having to sign a four year commitment. The Special Op Events Series consists of races that accommodate individuals, groups or teams while promoting teamwork. As you forge through our courses one step at a time towards the finish line, we want you to walk away with a symbol of excellence; a badge of courage, a mark of distinction!

Course Description:
Special Ops Series offers 2 races on the same day. You choose which one you want to do.


Special Ops' 5K Assault (on Childhood Cancer) is (3.1 miles) Terrain Run, which is the perfect introductory challenge for individuals, groups or teams to get the blood flowing and affiliate with our Elite Series. There are no technical requirements to participate in this event; however, you may encounter water obstacles along the way. The course is nestled in the landscape; the course provides spectacular views along the route. It's a great way to start your journey to becoming Special Ops Qualified!

The Green Beret Challenge is a 6 - 8 mile course designed by U.S. Special Forces, which requires a minimum of a 2-person team to work together and negotiate obstacles while carrying, pulling or pushing their way to the finish line. Bring your A-Game because this event is focused on problem solving, decision-making, and communication to complete five (5) Special Force type missions. The pain will be legendary, but the sense of accomplishment will last forever!
