FELLSMERE -- On June 8, more than 3,000 men and women ages 14 and older are expected to put their endurance and determination to the test as they face the demanding, one-of-a-kind "Beat the Gauntlet" obstacle course, complete with a mud run at Fellsmere's Mesa Park.

Volunteer drill sergeants will motivate runners as they are sent out in waves beginning at 9 a.m. through the course, which covers 200 acres and six miles.

It consists of a $350,000 assault obstacle ropes course developed by the Unites States Army, a grueling 1.4-mile run through Florida's Natural Preserve and a challenging man-made obstacle course including ice, water, fire and, of course, tons of mud.

All are invited to take the challenge. Local high school ROTC volunteers, manned golf carts and medical support will be on hand to ensure all cross the finish line.

Finishers receive dog tags as medals and all are invited to the Beat the Gauntlet after party, which includes awards for Top Male, Top Female, Top Team (Male), Top Team (Female), Top Team (Mixed), Best Costume, Worst Costume and Top Team Tug of War.

There will be barbecue, music, bands, beer and a multitude of vendors at Mesa Village.

Parking cost $10, and registration is priced competitively.

Visit www.BeatTheGauntlet.com for details.

To volunteer, sponsor, become a vendor or for more information about the mud run/obstacle challenge, call Tricia Lee at (321) 338-5015 or send an email to trish@vm-solutions.net.
