Obstacle courses are metaphors for life's trials—tall walls represent unaccomplished goals, narrow bridges represent the fear of failure, and mud pits represent the daily grind at the mud-pie factory. Conquer what holds you back with this Groupon.
$29 for Entry to 5K Obstacle-Course Mud Run ($65 Value)
In waves that depart every 30 minutes, competitors tackle 5 kilometers worth of fun, messy obstacles, such as mud pits, tire runs, and slip ‘n’ slides. Finishers receive a medal and all participants receive a Mud Factor bandana. Access city-specific information here.
Each year, Mud Factor plows into towns across the country towing along a fun, yet challenging, course full of obstacles and mud to trudge through. It's 5 kilometers of dirty, sweaty madness that pits runners not against each other, but against their own expectations. Attendees don event bibs and bandanas before rocketing off the starting line in waves, dashing away to prove their superiority to steep hills, muddy pits, and inner demons. Costumes are encouraged—be they Mud-Thing ensembles or strategically placed Speedos—for runners who like to rock their own style. By conquering the course, participants win the right to don achievement medals.
