What a fun race! We had some navigation issues on the way there and we arrived with less then 10 minutes to spare (approx 12:51) before our 1pm wave was sent off to get a little muddy! We had to check-in, get our bibs and race day packets, but after a nice parking lot sprint to the gate and some handywork with the safety pins, we lined up and the Warrior Gods Beckoned!! The race was on!
Its slow going in the beginning as an absolute throng of potential warriors make their way through a roped-in course… but soon enough the mudding begins! Does it ever! Numerous mud pits make any notions or advice you may have received about running on the outside or high stepping… irrelevant. Just tie your shoes tightly! You will prefer having them, versus the underworld pulling them down into the murky depths…
Once sprinkled lightly with mud, you gallop over some bouncy hay bales and trail run for a while… then the fun begins again! Slaughtered vehicles you must vault followed by intertwined tires that you must high-step through and repeat!! A quick water break followed by more mudding!
Add in some climbing obstacles, over-under’s, cargo nets, fallen trees and a lake dousing and things get real!
For the final stretch its a quaint dual fire leap followed by the infamous mud pit and barbed wire persuasion bathers!
All in all, a good time with good people! Its kind of like a Phish concert with turkey legs and better costumes!
P.S. – Shoes are donated after the race!
