What is the Kraken?
First, check out the inaugural Kraken CSAUP:
In the cold of the night, peering into the dark of the sea, ancient mariners whispered to themselves and one another, “in mari multa latent” – in the ocean many things are hidden.
In Nordic legend, the most fearful of what lurked unseen was the Kraken, a beast that rose from rolling waves of wet blackness to tower over the tallest mast of any ship before wrapping its massive tentacles around the vessel and laying waste to it and its crew.
In mari multa latent… In our own lives, like the ocean, much hides beneath the surface. Our own Krakens – the personal demons that lay within us – take many forms, each seeking, like the mythical sea monster, to drag us to depths of emotional and physical ruin.
As brothers of F3, we come together to steel our bodies and minds, so that in a world rife with disease, divisiveness and despair, we may overcome whatever challenges arise to steadfastly serve our friends, our families, and our God. We strengthen ourselves by testing one another, by pushing beyond perceived boundaries, and realizing that we can be – that we must be – better tomorrow than we are today. Indeed, there’s a newer saying we tell each other in the gloom – “nothing grows in the comfort zone.”
On February 20th, 2021, leave the comfort zone. Join your F3 Jax brothers. Slay the Kraken. And discover the strength of confidence that comes only through achievement.
Important F3 Jax Kraken CSAUP Information:
The second annual Kraken launches from the Poseidon AO (Sunshine Park) at 6:30a.m (ruckers) and 7:00a.m (runners)
From there, the 16-mile course will take you to Jax Beach. You’ll head south on the beach to Mickler’s Landing, then back to Poseidon. The course will include multiple pain stations for “extra credit” beatdowns and hydration and fuel will be provided as well. Ruck it, run it, bike it, bear-crawl it, team-up to do it with a partner, whatever – just do it!
All funds raised will be presented to Trinity Rescue Mission at the end of the event.
Bring some refreshments and enjoy some F2 with your bros afterward.
