Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with this Groupon.

On Saturday, May 3, runners take to the Cinco de Muddo's 5K course in waves that set off every half-hour from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., slipping and sliding through the mud and tackling more than 20 obstacles, such as climbing walls, tunnels, a zipline, and watery mud pits. After completing the run, participants receive a T-shirt, a medal, a can of Red Bull, and access to a postrace party with live music and a complimentary beer and tequila shot for participants 21 and older. Proceeds from the race benefit Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch.
The National MudRunners Association
The members of The National Mud Runners Association strive to build challenging and entertaining obstacle courses with their medium of choice—mud—motivating participants to get fit while having fun and getting filthy. Each of their events attracts thousands of participants, who sprint across muddy terrain, climb over walls, and splash through muddy pools of water created by dinosaur footprints. After crossing the finish line, dirt-caked participants can amble into the event's postrace area to pick up their medal, grab a T-shirt, stroll around vendor booths, and dry off while soaking in live music. Committed to giving back to the community, The National Mud Runners Association donates the proceeds of each event to a charity.
