I'm in too...if you are on the fence, get off, it's limited to the first 200. Last year only about 50 signed up for each challenge location (Greer, SC and Moab, UT) but I suspect that now that people have heard how much fun it is and that you don't need to be Toni Bou to compete and have fun, it will probably be better attended.
It's honestly more about having fun, meeting people and getting a honest assessment of your skills as it is about competing, although a few people took it too seriously and got pissed off when they either failed to negotiate certain terrain/obstacles. I went with the intention of having fun, I was stunned when I made the top 12 and then quickly got humbled by the top 5 guys...Now hurry up and sign up!
