Merrell Down & Dirty National Mud and Obstacle Series
Covering oneself in mud, scaling an inflatable wall, and crawling through a tunnel is not how most people spend their Sunday mornings. But for competitors in the Merrell Down & Dirty National Mud and Obstacle Series, it’s business as usual. During a 5K or 10K, participants test their endurance and strength as they tackle more than 15 challenges in between sprints. These include leaping over marine hurdles, walking across balance beams, and clenching your teeth until tiny wings sprout from your ankles. Youngsters can join in on the fun, too—the Adventure Kids course pits ages 4–13 against child-sized obstacles and a mud pit. Following the race, winners in their division earn awards, then celebrate during a post-race after-party complete with live music.
