Brawn, axes, hoses, sweat and sand — it’s what makes up the storied Pensacola Beach Firefighters Challenge, a competition of brute strength, sheer will, finesse and determination where we find out who’s the best of best.
Pensacola Sports is hosting the 7th annual Pensacola beach firefighters challenge on April 14 and 15. More than just for firefighters — any civilian, company, or group can enter the “civilian challenge” to compete on the same course as the professional firefighters. Grab your friends, work-out buddies, or co-workers and compete in this unique event. Gyms and CrossFit Clubs welcome. No firefighter experience needed.
Individuals or teams of five can register and compete. The winning civilians will take home bragging rights and a stunning trophy to display.
Partnering with the Escambia County and city of Pensacola Fire Departments, the event will test civilians’ and firefighters’ skill as they maneuver through a five-station course, all in the sand. Two teams/individuals will compete at one time. The five stations on the course include: forced entry, charged hose pull, kaiser sled, dummy drag and hose hoist.
Register a 5-person team (Firefighters or Civilian) or challenge yourself and do the course solo.
The Pensacola Beach Firefighters Challenge is a great event to build camaraderie, compete, have fun and win!
