Think you have what it takes to be one of the toughest around?

The owners at Boggs and Boulders say “prove” it.

The company, has teamed up with Sqwish Sqwash Challenge to put on the “roughest, toughest, most extreme athletic challenge you’ll ever endure.”

The events will be Sat., Jan. 28, and Sat., Feb. 4.

In a course designed by Navy Seals, participants will have the opportunity to take part in three different events.

• Braveheart Challenge, which is three to four miles of 10 to 12 obstacles for ages 14 and up, will be held Jan. 28;

• Blazing Mud Challenge, which is six to eight miles of 14 to 18 obstacles for ages 16 and up, will be held Jan. 28;

• Seal Tough Challenge, which is 10 to 15 miles of 18 to 24 obstacles for ages 18 and up, will be held Feb. 4.

“In the Seal Tough Challenge, participants will have the opportunity to swim across the lake, jump over signs, climb under barbed wire and run through a cave,” said Ashley Holland, of Boggs and Boulders.

Holland said this is the first time Boggs and Boulders has ever held a challenge.

“If it all goes well, we plan to do it again,” she said.

Holland said they are expecting a “big crowd.”

“We’re expecting at least 500 people as far as participants go,” she said. “We still have about 30 campsites available and some rooms available.”

Holland said those interested in signing up for the challenge can do so through the Boggs and Boulders Website or by coming to the park.

“We’ll offer a special rate for those who come to the park,” she said. “And the sooner you sign up the less it will cost you.”

In addition to the cost for the event, Holland said there is a $5 fee for each challenger to enter the park and $10 for each spectator.

“We do accept cash, credit cards or checks,” she said.

Holland said anyone under the age of 19 is required to have a waiver signed by a parent to enter the challenge.

“We’d also like for people to know that our park will still be open for our four-wheeler customers, but there will be limited trails,” she said.
