FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. - Hundreds of daring runners hit the sand this morning to compete in the first-ever Survival Beach event. It was a 3-mile run from the Pink Shell Resort on Fort Myers Beach up to Bowditch Point and back.

But, here's the challenge: runners had to jump, climb, duck under and wade through about a dozen obstacles spread throughout the course.

"Some of them are a little difficult," Allison Cary said. "There are some monkey bars, there's this tarp thing you have to shimmy under and it smelled bad, but we definitely made it through. It was fun."

WINK News was a sponsor of the event. Our own Haley Hinds took the challenge and in the final round, she came out on top to earn the title of "Last Woman Standing."

The "Last Man Standing" was Glen Button of Fort Myers.
