Bucksport's Michael Braniff admits the 2014 Endurance Death Race in Vermont is not for everyone. On June 27th he will be in Pittsfield, Vermont to take on a 40-mile course that runs through the Vermont woods.

Braniff and other competitors will try to complete a grueling obstacle course that includes both mental and physical challenges. For instance...

- how about chopping wood for 2 hours

- a 30-mile hike with rocks and weighted packs

- build a fire from scratch

- cut a bushel of onions

- memorize the names of U.S. Presidents, hike a mountain, then recite names in order
