It doesn't necessarily take an athlete to complete the Gritty Gods 5K course—especially since it's a non-competitive race. But it does take spirit. That's because participants here not only have to run, they also have to wade through mud, fight through sand, crawl through tubes, climb over walls, and find their way through a maze. At the end, racers are exhausted, dirty (don't worry: there are showers), and imbued with a feeling of accomplishment.
