Mud Runs

So, some of us want to get in shape, stay in shape, or challenge our limits. There's more than just Gyms that can give ya that option.

So here's a collection of Mud Run events that are available, at least here in North America. And some other developed parts of the world that are cool. Anybody interested in attending one, post up. Lets see if we can possibly get a large enough group to go. These events also have "TEAM" signups. Can have an official MCB team listing.

And keep in mind, not every event is necessarily so insanely difficult that only those in peak physical condition should attend. Some of these are being taken on by really fat ****s that walk most the length. So even if you don't think you're in the BEST shape that doesn't mean you can't go any ways and enjoy. These are quite fun for people of all shapes and ages.

If anybody knows of any other obstacle course/mud runs out there feel free to share.



*edit*
Adding some more I found from a website I stumbled across. Mud Run Central Seems to have a listing of mud run events. Schwing!

So a couple other nationally touring type of events that seem to be worth the money to invest entry fee too...

Very cool idea.
You have no shortage of events to abuse yourself at. I am looking at one of the Spartan races in June. There is an event near me in the suburbs of Toronto or maybe something up near Ottawa. It all depend on how much I want to abuse myself.

My brother is trying to guilt a bunch of us into doing the Tugh Mudder near Poplar Bluff, MO next Sept. After watching these videos and seeing people in worse shape than I am now, I think I'm game.

I was chatting with a friend of a friend who just did this past weekend's event. This guy has done triathalons and stuff and said it was intense. It's doable for everyone, but just intense and chaotic.

My thinking, GO BIG OR GO HOME!

Besides the 20 people that actually race in the front of each heat competing... most everybody else is either lightly jogging, or jogging and walking, or just walking. I jog and walk, jog when I can, get too much lactic acid burning for a bit, walk until it kinda flushes away a little, then continue jogging. There are some people who you look at and think they got here after a 3 year Xbox bender. And they take to the course. And finish. Besides those lead people competing, everybody else is in this just to finish. Having fun, getting off the couch, and simply finishing to say you did it.

Sign up, get out, and enjoy. Take pictures or bring a helmet camera even if you can. I made the mistake this year of not bringing mine. Will change that, definitely bringing my helmet camera to each of the races I attend.

I like this idea... I'm in for at least one! If you're doing the Boston one, I'll sign up.

Some of my old buddies recently did the Tri State Tough Mudder over Veterans Day weekend. You can check out their team site for video and reviews.
