The Boca Grande Fire Department is hard at work preparing for their first Hammerhead Adventure Run on Saturday, July 28.
The 3.5 mile run will travel along the beach and through downtown, with obstacles, ice, mud and water along the way.
The race will begin at 8 a.m., with a new wave every 10 minutes.
There will be prizes for division and overall winners. Everyone who participates will receive a race t-shirt and a goody bag.
So far, more than 65 people have signed up. Anyone can form a team, or you can register as an individual. Registration is at active.com. Search for “Hammerhead Adventure Run,” and it will take you to the page. The entry fee for the run is $65.
The run is being held as a fundraiser for the Boca Grande Firefighters Association, which was created to support firefighters and their families in times of need and hardship.
After the race, there will be a party at the Boca Grande Community Cente with food, games and a bounce house for the kids.
