Lake Tech Institute
1565 Lane Park Cutoff, Tavares
Registration Fee: $75 - $195
The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession's rigors to the public. Wearing "full bunker gear" and the SCOTT Air-Pak breathing apparatus, pairs of competitors race head-to-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. "victim" as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock. In addition, those arriving to the area early are invited to participate in a golf tournament at Mission Inn Resort and Club on Friday, April 13 for an entry fee of $100.
