Parkland Equestrian Center
The inaugural MSD Heroes Challenge is an obstacle course race for athletes of all skill levels and ages. This fun family event encourages community building and a healthy lifestyle through teamwork and outdoor living. Participating individuals and teams will partake in a two-mile race of exciting and challenging obstacles and are invited to join a signature Heroes yoga class following the race. All funds raised from the event will be used to provide scholarships to emerging student leaders in local schools and to support the efforts of Stand with Parkland, The National Association of Families for Safe Schools and other nonprofits working to create safer communities.
Founded in 2018 by local community activists Doug Eaton, Manny Mair, Amy Kenny and Debra Hixon, the Heroes Challenge was born to bring together South Florida communities in remembrance of the tragic day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School one year ago.
Registration opens at 6:30 AM and the race starts at 7:30 AM. Participants may register for a 11:15 AM yoga-only session with Amy Kenny for a small donation or as part of their race package.
