Running on a team can be a great way to experience an obstacle race or mud run. It's fun to race and compete with friends and help each other over the tough obstacles. Here are a few tips to make racing with a team even more enjoyable.
Finishing a race comes with a huge feeling of success and accomplishment, but then it comes to cleaning off the mud after the race it can be tricky. Often a long car ride or flight awaits your post race celebration. Getting clean after the race is not always straightforward. Most of the major race series such as Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, and Warrior Dash offer hoses, showers and changing tents for participants.
Obstacle races and mud runs are a rite of passage for fitness enthusiasts. Many see pictures of friends jumping over fire or crawling under barbed wire and want to join in on the fun. Before signing up for an obstacle race or mud run many participants want to know just what obstacles they might encounter in their mud run or obstacle race experience.
Mud Runs and Obstacle Course Races are an exciting way to get outside and active on the weekends with friends, family and more. Running an obstacle race or mud run can be daunting at first with so many unknown variables. What will the obstacles be like? Can I do them? Am I ready for such a challenge? What do I wear? What do I bring? Mud Run Guide is here to help you answer some of those questions, specifically, what to bring.
All of these events are big on fun, and in descending order of difficulty. WIPEOUTRUN is the easiest, all the way down to Spartan Race Sprint as the hardest "beginner-friendly" races. If you're looking for a good reason to get muddy and experience an actual mud run/obstacle course race with guys and gals, our best suggestion is to start with Warrior Dash. Yeah, we know you're the adventurous type - but recommend getting at least one OCR under your belt before you move up to Spartan Race Sprint; even the short distance is pretty darn difficult with mandatory obstacle completion (the only one on this list that requires it)!
