Military Run 6K
The Military Run 6K declares war on the stereotypical "fun" run. It's visceral. It's intense. And it's very, very wet. But for adrenaline junkies, and those whose first words were "Sir, yes sir!" it's a rewarding 3.8 mile escapade into a thrilling theater of war. Armed with water guns and thousand-yard stares, camouflaged platoons embark onto the battlefield under the bellows of a drill sergeant. Flanked by water-balloon bearing snipers, soldiers learn the value of teamwork and towels as they run, jump, lurch, squat, duck, and get doused along the 6K sortie. The trail is laden with military training staples such as high walls, rope bridges, and barbed-wire crawls to test the mettle of warriors. Along the way, faux-soldiers take on cavernous booby traps of mud and ambushes that resemble a surprise party for Rambo, but with 100% less casualties.
