MUD FACTOR here I come
We set up a team - people from work and friends
I was beyond excited I can do this. I even found a groupon that I forwarded to everyone. Pretty good deal only $29 dollars vs $75.13 (with insurance) great deal.
I didn't even look at the event - it was cheap, local and an activity that can be done with friends/co-workers/family on top of fitness
What is a little mud - no biggies, right???
WRONG WRONG WRONG
When you open the website it says HARDCORE 5k Obstacles - WTH??? does that mean....
I looked further into the website (NOTE To self READ everything before you put yourself out there and NOW I have to do this)
I think I am going to be sick - this is FROM their exact website. Yeap SICK I tell yah.
(My comments in RED)
Mud Factor’s Triple Threat obstacle has three 24 foot wide, 15 foot high structures for you to scale, back to back. They are set to 70 degree angles on either side and each structure has a different face – with cargo nets, ladders, paneled walls, and suspended climbing ropes, be careful of the mud left behind by your fellow Mud Runners. Have I ever told you that I am AFAIRD of heights?? Yeap now I have to go over this shit WTH????
It’s 10 feet high and 24 feet wide with 45 degrees on both sides. You are covered in mud from head to toe and you have to make it across this Mud Factor Mud Run Obstacle. Use the attached ropes to help you get up and over. A great Mud Factor Mud Runner will not leave their Mud Buddies behind – so lend your friends a rope and a helping hand! SHIT
Slip n’ Slide
It’s almost like we’re giving the Mud Factor Mud Run Fun away for FREE! You have a 50 degree Obstacle to climb, but once you’re at the top, it’s all downhill from there. And what better way to coast down the slope than to Slip n’ Slide down this Mud Run Obstacle Favorite! It’s 15 feet high and 24 feet wide with two 35 degree lanes to descend with your Mud Buddies down the Mud Factor Mud Run water slide obstacle. Ok this is doable even though it is November
Staggered Hay Bales
Stagger through the Staggered Hay Bails for 100 feet of the Mud Factor Mud Run. It’s fluttered hay pails high and low. Navigate over, around or even straight through this Mud Factor Mud Run Hardcore Obstacle, but watch out! Covered in mud, that hay might stick to you, terrorize you and you’ll be flapping around like the Scarecrow in the Oz. This will be like old times on the farm.
Drop to your hands and knees! Your Mud Factor Mud Run has just turned to a Mud Crawl. Slither through mud on your belly for 50 treacherous feet. Encounter wire stretched across this mud obstacle every 3 feet. Be careful not to plant your face in the mud – the wire is only 20″ off the ground. This section of the course is 20 feet wide, so crawl with your Mud Factor Mud Buddy and have a raucous laugh as your friend face-plants in the cement like mud. OMG what if I get hurt?????
The first time through the Mud Factor Mud Run Cargo Container is a piece of cake. Run in one side and out the other. That is, until you return. The second time around, you’ll be climbing cargo nets up, across the top and down the other side in this Mud Factor Mud Run obstacle.
It’s 10 feet high and 24 feet wide with 45 degrees on both sides. You are covered in mud from head to toe and you have to make it across this Mud Factor Mud Run Obstacle. Use the attached ropes to help you get up and over. A great Mud Factor Mud Runner will not leave their Mud Buddies behind – so lend your friends a rope and a helping hand! AGAIN REALLY, WHY????
Over / Under
Mud Factor starts with the finest of Dirt. Then we add crisp, clear water. Mmm… Mud! It’s only a 20 feet wide, 50 feet long mud pit – almost too easy. So, for your obstacle inconvenience, we drop a load of Barrels in your path. Dodge, Climb, Crawl and Creep your way around them, but make sure your shoes are tied on tight – you don’t want them getting stuck in the mud!
The mud is not your arch-enemy in this Mud Factor Mud Run Obstacle – it’s the Trees of Sure-Wood Forest. Scrape the mud off your feet and get dodgy! You may know where you are and you may know where you need to be, but you’ll have to dart left and right to make your own bee-line through the rugged forest.
Shallow Mud Pit
We started with Mud, added more Mud, then covered it with Mud. This Mud Factor Mud Run Obstacle is 50 feet long, 24 feet wide and filled with 6 inches of thick, cement like mud. Walk, crawl or roll through the mud pit and don’t leave your Mud Buddy behind. Give them a drag and a laugh if you must!
