Most 5Ks follow a familiar script: runners wind their way through simple, temporary courses designed out of necessity rather than creativity. Fortunately, The Mud Titan isn't most races, and its course isn't something to simply be endured. More than 30 obstacles await intrepid runners, incorporating climbs, slides, and crawls through mud that pit racers against the very ground they tread on. After challenging their endurance, strength, and threshold for dirty socks, winners of the Elite Waves are awarded with a custom engraved trophy, while those who participated in costumes are judged and awarded accordingly by audience members. Though the run rewards racers with exercise and bragging rights, those aren't the only things at stake; a portion of the proceeds help support The Youth Alliance, a non-profit organization that works with local communities to empower young people.
