A little about the Event

Come and support the 4TH annual event, CAVEMAN CHALLENGE! This event was founded to support The Wil-Power Foundation, Inc, that was formed to honor the life of William Mintner, a former friend, son, teammate of the Ocala Aquatics swim team, and the Florida Southern swim team. Wil is very missed, but with the help of his loving friends and family, we feel like we are able to capture some of the heart of Wil during this event! This race includes a 5K run followed by a 400 yard swim broken up by CrossFit type movements in between each 50. The event finishes with a 25 yard Jeep Wrangler push!
