Does MuckFest live up to its own hype as a fun way to spend a day with a group of friends? I gathered a small team with varying levels of mud run experience to find out.
The Spartan Monterey Sprint course is a great compromise between steeper, harder-to-run courses like Big Bear or Tahoe, and the flatter, less 'challenging' locations like Chino, or Arizona, making it perfect for those seeking a moderately difficult course they can still run.
Running, rucking, hiking, walking, and...crawling? Wood chopping, knot tying, fire-starting, and archery. There were guns and yoga. Sound like fun? The SISU Iron might be for you!
Memorial Day Mayhem is a local OCR event that takes place at the Black Diamond Obstacle Course in Columbus, OH. Designed by Jason Goggins, the Black Diamond Obstacle Course has been repeatedly nominated for best OCR training facility by the Mud Run Guide “Muddies” awards. The race is enjoyable, affordable, and is an accessible, yet challenging event that proves to hold its own in the OCR community and reminds us of the benefits of racing local.
