Good Team Names and How To Choose One Video

What is a Mud Run?

In a mud run event, participants take on a military-type obstacle course – with plenty of mud at certain obstacles – while typically dressed as if they were attending a Halloween party. Mud run events take between 30 minutes and 2+ hours to complete for most participants and are generally 6K in length. The obstacles can take considerable time to navigate, so don’t equate the length of an event to running alone.
