The challenge consisted of an obtacle course that began with about a 100 to 150 meter run, a tire flip, high knees through tires, dead lifts, squats, jumps, and a crawl through a stretch of muddy ditches varying in depth. Participants on average took approximately five minutes or less to complete the challenge and a large crowd gathered to cheer on the participants, whose ages ranged from 13 to 55.
