Course Description:

The course and event will take place in the scenic meadow landscape. The trail will be relatively flat with few hills.

8 to 10 miles. 20+ obstacles. An epic adventure challenge unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
Take on the most powerful forces of nature in the world’s first and only epic multi-sport challenge designed by legendary outdoorsman Laird Hamilton. The Force of Nature Mind Body Challenge is about more than brute strength or getting muddy. It’s the only outdoor event course that aims to challenge the complete athlete—both the nature within and the nature without—with invigorating and rugged experiences inspired by some of the toughest places on the planet.

Unlike events that are only about brute strength—Force of Nature events challenge the complete athlete. Nothing about the courses is easy—and the hardest challenges might be those that ask you to look deep inside and tap into your ability to have your mind and body work.
Some of the obstacles you might encounter include:

  • Herat Rate Control - What goes up, must come down. Use your mind and body to control and master your heart rate.
  • Quick Sand - Not your average mud pit. How fast can you make it through this signature obstacle?
  • Atlas Stones - Not just carrying the weight of the world – but throwing it and then some.
  • Coconut Trees - A challenging climb with simulated coconut trees and cargo nets. A full body challenge.
  • Moving Mountains - If you finish this obstacle, you’ll feel like you’ve moved mountains. Use your mind, body and soul to dig deep.
  • Gravel Pit - Your shoes won’t save you. 30 feet of jagged rough rock await your bare feet.
  • Blinding Beams - Traverse this unique cargo climb ten feet off the ground while being blinded by spotlights.
  • Arctic Crawl - You’ve seen the army crawl, but never like this. Prepare yourself for the Arctic Crawl.
  • Water Wall - The Water Wall is truly a force of nature. Torrents of water mercilessly rain down as you attempt to keep your climbing focus.
  • Polar Plunge - Just when you think you’ve beaten the course, this dark and icy water pit awaits you for one final challenge.
  • The Furnace - Do you dare enter The Furnace? Up to 130 degree temps await you in this unique obstacle.
  • Underwater Run - Running underwater is hard enough. Running underwater while holding a weighty rock is a Force of Nature.




Follow Laird’s personal training approach to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for the event. Then get ready to take on the forces of nature with signature adventure obstacles and other one-of-a-kind challenges based on Laird’s experiences. It’s the only course that challenges every part of you to achieve things you never thought possible.
