Modern humans gather around the television at night, much like earlier humans gathered around the radio and even earlier humans gathered around a burning stack of their enemies' clothes. Do something fun instead with this Groupon.

All participants receive a souvenir t-shirt, a medal upon crossing the finish line, and a complimentary beer or non-alcoholic beverage at the post-race party. Gates open at 7 a.m. and the opening ceremonies begin at 9:30. The first wave leaves the starting line at 9:30 a.m., and consecutive waves take off every 30 minutes thereafter. Race organizers suggest you show up at least 90–120 minutes before your scheduled run time.
For the organizers of Baddest Mudrun, playing in the mud hasn't lost its fun. Laid out inside a former rock quarry, the mud-drenched 5K course challenges droves of competitors with more than 20 obstacles ranging from climbing walls and monkey bars to water-filled pits. To ensure runners stay hydrated, water flows freely from stations planted throughout the course. Marshals are also on-hand at each obstacle to assist runners and shoo away any pigs prowling for new real estate. Though prizes are awarded to the top finishers in each category, the 5K-run is suitable for runners of all ages and skill levels.
At the end of the course, a tent brimming with upbeat music, food, and beer reward runners for their efforts. Meanwhile, post-race games of volleyball and tug-of-war get sweat glands going again. In addition to dirtying up contestants, the Baddest Mudrun has another aim: to support local charities with the proceeds.
