PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Members of the 45th Space Wing took to the beach in teams of two for an endurance race April 10 behind the Beach House of Patrick AFB.
There were 29 teams that competed, and the winners received points toward the Commander's Cup, an award presented to the units with the greatest levels of physical fitness.
This year's Beach Endurance Race was more challenging than the previous year, and included approximately 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles of obstacles such as flipping telephone poles, performing push-ups in the ocean, and carrying an ammunition can full of sand from obstacle-to-obstacle.
