The annual competition draws South Floridas heartiest folk lumberjacks, mountain men, and strongwomen, we assume for a day that reads like an octathelon for superheroes: Aside from the aforementioned truck push, tire flip, and log lift, theres a 1.5-mile run, an off-road bike course, swimming and kayaking time trials, and a farmers carry. The extreme events are done back-to-back with a brief five-minute interval between, so only the well-trained need apply. Iron men and women looking to test their mettle (har har) in individual or team competition can register by calling 954-360-1315, or visiting www.active.com. Fees start at $25.
