Merrell, a well-respected brand in the world of off-road running, hiking, and water sports, makes its first foray into mud runs with their Tough Mudder All Out Crush. We got our hands (feet) on a pair of the TM-branded ones and the standard red model, and put them through their paces.
At this location for the Merrell Down & Dirty series I will have to say that the 5k distance was pretty easy for me and the obstacles were semi-challenging. Everything ran smoothly, I liked their setup, location, vendors, announcers, volunteers and how organized everything was. Also just the enthusiasm from everyone I encountered was superb and I will definitely do this race series again and recommend it to my friends.
