To its organizers, the "fear" in the Fear Adventure Series isn't supposed to be scary. They see it as an acronym for “Forget Everything and Run," and "everything" includes common phobias such as heights, freezing water, fire, darkness, small spaces, and running people. A group of military veterans with more than 40 years of combined service modeled the run on the U.S. military's confidence course, and unlike the mazes on the backs of cereal boxes, it's not supposed to set you up for failure. After they finish, participants carry their newfound confidence to a post-race party and celebrate with cold drinks, food, and live music.
