For the race organizers at CampTITAN, a run just isn't a run without a few well-placed obstacles. During their annual 5K, they litter the course with roadblocks such as wooden walls, giant tractor tires, and slides. Runners aren't just confronted with climbable challenges; a rigorous smatterings of ponds and mud pits test agility and endurance over the course of the approximately 3-mile run. Although defeating such an action-filled course is reward enough on its own, organizers don't skimp on the celebration, either. Participant each receive a commemorative medal for tackling the course, a tangible reminder of the day that they looked mud in the face and whispered "not this time, you don't."
