Each year, Mud Factor plows into towns across the country towing along a fun, yet challenging, course full of obstacles and mud to trudge through. It's 5 kilometers of dirty, sweaty madness that pits runners not against each other, but against their own expectations. Attendees don event bibs and bandanas before rocketing off the starting line in waves, dashing away to prove their superiority to steep hills, muddy pits, and inner demons. Costumes are encouraged—be they Mud-Thing ensembles or strategically placed Speedos—for racers who like to rock their own style. By conquering the course, participants win the right to don achievement medals.
