“Success is not necessarily walking up on the stage and winning the award, but rather, do people feel the impact of your job, your words, your presence. Early on, yes, I wanted the plaque on the wall. But you can’t hug a plaque and look into a plaque’s eyes and tell it that it matters. That’s what we tell men – that whatever the challenge, they can do it.”
It’s time to do it.
It’s time to accept the challenge … to push yourself to another level … to make a difference in your community … and to honor the man who spoke those words – Jeff “Heisenberg” McCrea. The 2023 edition of The Kraken is upon us – 16.8 miles of sand and concrete, multiple pain stations, and the opportunity to, as Heisenberg once said, “go through struggles to put on display our character.”
Note Heisenberg’s use of the possessive determiner “our” when talking about character. The Kraken pushes us individually, but this CSAUP is about what we achieve collectively, specifically, about the impact F3 Jax has on the homeless in our community.
In 2022, the 113 participants who took part in the Kraken raised more than $12,000 for Trinity Rescue Mission.
The goal for 2023: $15,000.
We’re also adding a tweak to this with a friendly Regional Challenge: River City vs First Coast
So come join us this year. Run it, ruck it, bike it, walk it, whatever – just come on out, have some fun, push yourself, and help make a difference. As Heisenberg perfectly put it, “It’s a beautiful thing that a bunch of men can get together and work out and get better and make the community better.”
Important F3 Jax Kraken CSAUP Information:
The 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 (for approximately 8 miles) to Mickler’s Landing, then you’ll turn out onto Ponte Vedra Blvd and begin the 8+ mile trip back to Poseidon.
The course will include at least 4 pain stations for “extra credit” beatdowns and hydration and fuel will be provided as well.
Ruck it, run it, bike 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.
Our goal for 2023: at least $15,000 raised for Trinity Rescue Mission.
Bring some refreshments and enjoy some F2 with your bros afterward.
