Mud Run Event: Man Games on Sep 07, 2013
Man Games


Welcome to Man Games: THE definitive team challenge competition and the ultimate measuring stick of true manhood. If you think of yourself as a true man (or woman), and don’t we all, come to Man Games and prove it.

Man Games is like no sporting event you have ever experienced. Teams of men and women will battle in a day-long no-holds- barred competition of strength, skill, agility and endurance to compete for honor, bragging rights, and the title of ultimate man. Have you ever fantasized about competing in an old west duel, being launched from a giant slingshot, or wrestling a swine? Of course you have, and now all of your manliest dreams will become realities in one day of testosterone, adrenaline, and beef jerky.

Man games is NOT “obstacle racing”; it is NOT “running”; it is NOT “torture”; and it is definitely NOT “for pansies”.

To give you an idea of what to expect at Man Games, here is a brief description of a few of the challenges you and your teammates will confront:

Human Slingshot – Yes, a human slingshot. One team member will be launched by the others high into the air. How far will you sail before gravity sends you plummeting into the water?

All Sport Challenge – Prove your athletic prowess in a competition of traditional sports: football, basketball, baseball and soccer. Your skill, strength and agility will be tested in a plethora of ways – football passing ability, pitching speed, batting strength,

kicking accuracy and basketball shooting skill. Win this event and be crowned ultimate jock.

Giant Rope Swing – Start from a platform high above the ground. Grab on to the rope, take a deep breath and launch yourself through the crisp mountain air towards a series of floating targets in the cool, clear waters of Deer Creek Reservoir.

Sprint Obstacle Course – Thrill in the challenge, struggle and satisfaction that comes from an “obstacle run” event, only without the freaking 10 mile run. In a mere 100-200 yards, you will be subjected to ice, fire, mud and a bevy of stubborn obstacles as you race to be the first to cross the finish line.

Water Sport Challenge – In this timed relay-style event, each team member will be required to complete a lap out to a floating buoy and back, using a variety of methods, such as swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. Good luck.

Mounted Spear Throw – Hearkening back to days of yore, this challenge will have you galloping on horseback, spear in hand, attempting to impale a large woodland creature for sport – and points.

This is just a sampling of the fun that awaits you at the inaugural Man Games.

Do you have what it takes to be the ultimate man (or woman)? Probably not, but you’ll have the time of your life finding out. A few technical details regarding the event: Competitors will be in teams of four individuals.
