Obstacle course races, mud runs, and combinations of the two have become incredibly popular. You'll take on mud pits, run through varied terrain, and crawl and climb over walls, wires, and more. A wide range of events are available throughout the year in any season. Mud and obstacles make it more than just a running test - it's just as much about your strength and agility.
