The GRIT Strength Challenge is a team-based strength & fitness challenge utilizing primitive objects that were available during the Florida Seminole War period of 1817 thru 1858. Think of it as a combination of strongman, Highland Games, and CrossFit with logs and barrels! This event will take place March 1-2, 2019.

The event location for the Grit Strength Challenge will be the newly restored Fort King National Landmark in Ocala, Florida, site of the start of the 2nd Seminole War. This is an entirely outdoor event.

This will be a unique competition and is designed so all fitness levels can participate. Teams will be challenged to move objects over a distance similar to what would have been used during the 1800’s: Logs, barrels, sandbags and more will be used to test your team.

Are you strong enough to survive, do you have the GRIT, nerve, and stamina to make it home in one piece?

Will you defend your honor on the battlefield, or whimper back alone?

Challenge your self against the legacy of the soldiers of Fort King, on the same land they stood, fought, and were tested.

Are you brave enough?
