Mud Runs and Races

Mud Runs and Races

So you want to do a mud run? It’s true, mud runs are an exciting part of the fitness world and it’s easy to see why. They provide a new dynamic to the pastime of running while introducing elements of all the obstacle course games shows we loved watching as kids. They also present us with innovative challenges to conquer, allow our inner child the chance to play in the mud without reprimanding, and they are just plain out fun.

It goes without saying that mud runs and races are also very physically demanding and often require us to push ourselves to new levels both physically and mentally. While achieving new levels of fitness and smashing barriers can be empowering, the same elements of danger and difficulty that make mud runs so attractive are also ones that create an environment of potential injury.

Keeping this in mind it is important that if you decide to take the plunge and sign up for one of the many mud runs and races offered than you should adequately prepare yourself. You will want to not only be able to complete the run of your choice, but to do so with as few casualties as possible. You want your experience to be one that leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment and fond memories; not permanent scarring or lifelong injuries.

So, how do you prepare yourself for the strenuous demands and often bizarre obstacles that you will likely be presented with in one of these runs? Check out the resources below to get started and don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more updates and helpful advice for crossing your finish line!
