Mud Run Anyone?

Mud Run Anyone?

February 21, 2017

A quick google search for mud runs will render results such as Rugged Maniac, Zombie Mud Run, Battlegrounds Mud Run, Tonka Mud Run, Dirty Girl and Survivor Mud Run. At first blush, you might imagine the worst. Perhaps you originally thought "what fun" but then felt intimidated by such scary words. But never fear, all is not lost! You got this!

There are so many resources to help get you ready for a mud run race. MudRunGuide.com offers a wealth of information including FAQs, training and coaching resources, upcoming races, reviews of races, and more. There's a plethora of YouTube obstacle course tutorials and books like Ultimate Obstacle Race Training

Below is a summary of what The Mud Run Guide offers as "reality checks" for those looking to participate in a mud run:

  •  If you can walk about 3 miles in muddy clothes, you can finish a mud run.
  • Training helps. There are usually obstacles besides the mud in a mud run. Think jumping over flaming hay bales. Okay maybe not flaming (umm, actually it depends on the race). 
  • While running unclothed might seem like the fastest way to clean up after the race, it's pretty much frowned upon. So just buy yourself a Run's Done Disposable Seat Cover™ and you won't have to worry about skunking your car after the race.
  • Help your fellow competitor. While everyone's eye is on the prize, a code of honor is strongly encouraged at mud run races. It's just not cool to leave someone in the dust, or mud in this case.
