Race day is almost here and the anticipation is building! Race Directors are on location getting everything prepared for the largest, most exciting Fuego y Agua event ever!
From the first ever application-only 70km+ Survival Run Obstacle Course race to a stacked field of elites in the 100km, this year will be full of exciting competition and new experiences. Many runners who participated in the 25km last year are attempting the 50km this year, this is an amazing goal and we will do our best to make sure they get to the finish line!
