I’ve completed numerous running events and a Tough Mudder event. The one thing I always thought would take an event like Tough Mudder to the next level, was to skydive into the start of the race and hit the ground running. Three Navy SEALs have committed to doing just that as part of an event to raise funds for the SEAL Future Fund.

On October 25, 2018, three veteran Navy SEALs will skydive from 12,000 feet into the Pacific Ocean, swim 3 miles to shore, then run a 100-mile ultra marathon, all while wearing operational combat gear. WHOOP is helping prepare the SEALs for this grueling task, monitoring their daily strain, sleep and recovery as they raise awareness for the SEAL Future Fund. We’ll also be sharing their data live during the event as they push the boundaries of human performance.

102 miles later they were exhausted and sore, but they had accomplished their mission. And this was just the beginning.

It’s flipping the switch, it’s time to go to work. I don’t know if that will ever go away.”
