A great, low-key "mom and pop" mud run!
My wife and I did the 2016 BCMR in Brent, AL. This was her very first mud run, and she loved it! So much so that we came home and immediately signed up for an upcoming Warrior Dash.
I call the Back Country Mud Run a "mom and pop" mud run, and in no way do I mean that disrespectful. I simply mean that it is a much more laid back run than you will see with most of the other big boy OCRs. There was none of the "fan fare" that you see with some of the other big OCR series, but that was cool with me. Just show up, go to the registration desk to get you bib, and run! Plus, running the BCMR is a lot cheaper than running in the big name races.
I was impressed with the course, although the obstacles were not all that challenging. That is a good thing for a newbie like my wife. The "run" itself was through some very pretty central Alabama farm land, and there were plenty of mud obstacles. There was even a big slide down into a huge watering hole at the very end of the course, which helped rinse off a lot of the mud right before the finish line.
One thing that means a lot to me when I do mud runs is the "clean up" area/facilities. And I was very impressed with the water supply that was available to rinse off with after the event. When I go to a mud run, I always take extra water jugs to rinse off with, just in case, and I didn't even need to use them. Plus, they had a nice private enclosed changing area set up to change clothes after the race. Plus, you get a medal and a cool t-shirt! And did I mention that this race is inexpensive?! Plus the proceeds go to a good charity.
Overall, I'd say this is a GREAT event for an OCR beginner or newcomer. And as long as you don't have really high expectations for elaborate obstacles, it is a fun run for veterans as well. I say check it out if you are nearby.
