challenging and fun environment.

Event Description 

The competition is comprised of graded segments that challenge participants in CAP's three missions: Cadet Programs, Aerospace Education and Emergency Services. This is accomplished through a series of challenge exercises in addition to the Iron Man Run (3-5 mile course).  These challenges are not your typical physical fitness test or land-nav course. The teams who compete in this event are comprised of six CAP members in good standing with their squadron and/or wing. Teams may be a mixture of males and females, cadets and senior members. Combined teams (members from multiple squadrons) must be approved by the Competition Director. The event is typically held within a 24-hour period, beginning on a Friday night and concluding Saturday afternoon.
