Unlike events where you encounter man-made mud pits and constructed high walls in a parking lot, an O2X Summit Challenge will take you through all the obstacles Mother Nature's mountains can provide. Participants compete by running and trekking over mountainous terrain, river crossings, downed trees and other natural obstacles to feel the exhilaration of crossing the ultimate finish line.
