It has been an honor to have challenged Florida and out-of-state athletes to DARE GREATLY since 2012 with our trail runs, off-road duathlons and land navigation clinics. While it’s always been our goal to provide you with an “arena” where you can dare greatly or strive valiantly while embracing a healthy lifestyle, it's also been our aim to make our living from our events. Sadly, due to impact of previous race cancellations (Life's A Beach Triathlon due to Hurricane Irma and red tide) and event cancellations and restrictions due to COVID-19, we've had to make some tough choices. Following our February and March 2021 events, we will no longer be scheduling any events for the foreseeable future. Thank you to each racer who has been a part of our events over the years. You are truly appreciated and we will see you out in the woods and on the trails.
