Along with several ascents and descents of one or both Volcanoes, you will be challenged with climbing, swimming lakes & jungle rivers, carrying all sorts of things, digging, running brutal terrain, throwing (maybe throwing up), memorizing, and overall surviving this epic event! Obstacles will not be revealed until race day; be ready for anything!
