Thousands participate in various events around the world each year.  Tomorrow's event will be held at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ with another full day on Sunday.

Leading Team Hydroxatone this year is co-CEO Thomas Shipley, "As both an entrepreneur and a military veteran, I am quite familiar with challenging obstacles, but these are insane.  This will be entertaining."
