Created specifically for the community of Colorado Springs, BigDogBrag events inspire racers to stay “Colorado Fit” while proving that mud is temporary and glory is forever. The organization transforms local venues—such as the 86-acre RAM Off-Road Park—into swampy, obstacle-laden courses. There, muck-faced competitors gallop through canyons, leap across creek beds, and attempt to hurdle obstacles and mud pits keeping their knee-deep competitors captive.
Awards recognize the course’s snappiest sprinters, and simultaneous Little Dog 2K events whistle for younger pups to join the action. On race day, BigDogBrag throws a festive party where crowds gather amid live music and refreshments to celebrate their accomplishments and bury their finisher medals in time capsules beneath nearby trees.
BIG DOG BRAG The Colorado Mud Run
The creators of the mud run wanted to build a course that features Colorado's terrain, and they've done so by constructing a race that lets participants get down and dirty with the state's natural features. The run includes rope and cargo nets that climb up rock faces, a 60-foot super dog slide, creek bed mud crawls, and traversing across canyons. The run caters to all fitness levels and welcomes kids and parents to participate together.
