The Challenge Mud Run
The mad scientists behind The Challenge Mud Run spend their days playing with mud and surfing the Web for the ideal throwing knife. All that hard work will pay off when they host an intense 5- to 6-mile race that challenges the mind and body. During the race, entrants run, jump and crawl through various terrains and obstacles, swing on monkey bars over a water pit, answer a series of logic puzzles, and of course crawl through a mud dumpster while pretending to be the primordial life form that preceded the crocodile.
