I am so excited about this event!!! I have gotten into the whole running thing a year and a half ago and have been dying to do a mud run! So I got the wheels a turning- spoke to some people- and WIXX is making it happen!
We (along with Miller 64) are going to be sponsoring the 1st ever Hot Mess Mud Run! It will be September 15th in Greenleaf. I am going to try to fill you guys in by answering these questions...
-What is a mud run?
It is a super fun event! It will be a 5K obstacle course (that we will be putting together with a little help from the marines.) and of course we will be going through the mud! There will be walls to climb over- there will be water to run through- mud to slide across-and maybe a little splash of color! The best part about it- winners who finish will also receive a beer to celebrate a job well done!
-Do I have to be a hardcore runner?
Absolutely not- that is what is so great about this event! You can be someone who runs daily, or someone who just wants to get started. It is suitable for all levels- you can choose to pass over any obstacle you don't feel comfortable doing!
-Do I run solo?
You can OR you can put together a team (for more encouragement, and lets be honest, laughing in the mud with your friends, or having to haul one of your friends over a wall, is just more fun.) Their will also be awards being handed out for things like, best team name- best tshirt- best group costume! If you can't tell we are focused on the fun part of this event!
-Is this a girls only thing?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! We want men AND women- I can't wait to make my husband participate in this!
Is there an age requirement?
Yes- must be 18
Is their a fee?
Yes and proceeds will be donated to a local charity
When is sign up?
You will be able to sign up midweek- and I will have even more details for you then!
What if I don't want to run?
No problem- we need people cheering us on! We will have a beer tent and bleachers for spectators! Live music may also be provided!
