What's all this hype about mud running? Get the dirt and then get dirty; challenge your mind and body!

Mud Race Events It’s the phenomenon that is sweeping the globe and it has average Joe’s and G.I Joes competing in the same intense, down-and-dirty obstacle course commonly referred to as a mud run, mud race or sometimes even a death race. Remember Nickelodeon’s Guts and Double Dare? Take the 90s mash-up of obstacle challenges and replace the slime with mud; add the motivation of being called a warrior, Spartan or tough mudder and you’ll find yourself at a mud run.

Why you should run in the mud

The more the merrier!
