Dubbed as the Hell’s Bells 5K, the first Hybrid Hell Run race of 2013 snakes its way through Vista View Park in Davie on Saturday, October 26, at 9:30 a.m. Adult participants can register for the untimed race or the timed race, which has a limited number of slots available and features cash prizes for top performers.
No matter which wave they’re in, participants are encouraged to participate in the race’s 1970s theme by dressing up in retro costumes from the disco era. The race itself unfolds on a massive grass hill riddled with weeds, potholes, and loads of physical challenges that are only revealed on race day.
Hybrid Hell Run
If Victor Frankenstein ever took a break from science to design a 5K race, the result would have probably looked something like a Hybrid Hell Run event. Each race in the Hybrid Hell Run series is similar to Frankenstein’s monster: races are gritty, spread out across misshapen terrain, and require every ounce of physical and mental strength to survive.
With each of its races cranking up the intensity level, the series selects locations that are naturally challenging, such as forests, hills, or M. C. Escher’s labyrinthine backyard. The HHR team then brews up a ruthless lineup of physical challenges, maintaining focus on three main categories—cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed and agility. The finished course tests the athletic prowess of male, female, and youth divisions, with top performers receiving cash rewards.
