Grazing cattle and goats might join human spectators as they watch runners conquer the four-mile Jax R Wild obstacle course. Set to live music, the timed race winds through the gently sloping fields and rugged, rolling woods of the Seminole Tribe Youth Ranch in Immokalee. Every quarter-mile, participants are faced with a new obstacle, such as a mud pit or rope-climb. And as if these obstacles weren't challenging enough, runners are also required to assemble the best poker hand they can using cards they grab at the start, mid-way stations, and the finish area. A post-race party features beer, a barbecue buffet, and a concert (not to mention showers) to reward everyone for their efforts.
