Much like doing your taxes, finishing an obstacle course first requires stern dedication, mental fortitude, and bribes. Play dirty with this Groupon.
$35 for Mud Ninja Race Entry and After-Party Admission on Saturday, July 28, in South Salem (Up to $75 Value)
Participants navigate through a 5K course impeded by 21 muddy obstacles made all the more treacherous by the mischievous spectators who join in the fun by launching waterlogged Nerf balls at the contestants. Following the race, all in attendance are invited to an after-party with food, a complimentary beer (for participants aged 21 and older), and a live cover band. After the victory ceremony, entrants head home with a Mud Ninja T-shirt and a ninja star medallion. Costumes are encouraged.
Though Mud Ninja sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Lurking in the darkness of moisture-saturated topsoil, the mud ninja challenges competitors to attempt his 5K obstacle-laden course. Serving the purpose of allowing entrants to live out their reality-show fantasies, the Mud Ninja race requires participants to crawl through mud pits covered with barbed wire and scale steep walls before leaping onto multiple mounds that punish imbalanced racers with a splash. Throughout the 5K course, contestants splat into mud pits in front of hundreds of spectators. The Little Mud Ninja Challenge scales the course for younger racers, and an after-party engages all with music and epic colored bubble machines and a plethora of food vendors.
