Mud runs are fun, exciting and trigger the inner adventurer and explorer in all of us. They push us to our boundaries and let us escape our limits. All that while combining the just enough crazy challenges and mud run obstacles. This year, you have a chance to attend to the Ireland’s best mud run – The Runamuck Challenge.
And whether you booked your spots for this year’s Runamuck Challenge or are about to do that, you should definitely prepare for your first mud run in style. Today, we are helping you do that by sharing our rookie’s mud run race tips.
So, let’s begin.
1. Prepare To Melt Your Nerves
Feeling nervous before your first mud race event?
Don’t stress and don’t panic. Once the race starts, your nerves will melt away in the first quarter mile. You will realise that your first obstacle is the main thing you should focus on and try to make the most of.
2. Don’t Jump Feet-First Into The Mud Pit
As you probably know, there are a lot of obstacles in this year’s The Runamuck Challenge. However, that is what makes the adventure mud race more fun and exciting. What a lot of people don’t know is that jumping feet first into the mud doesn’t help – instead, it can create a problem for you from the very start. Whether it’s a missing sock or a shoe you cannot put on your foot, it is definitely a thing you don’t want from the very start.
3. Be Minimalist With Your Clothing
Thinking of wearing a heavy jacket, hoodie or sweatpants on The Runamuck Challenge this year?
Forget about it. The smartest mud race runners are known by their clothing choices. And if you want to be the best-dressed runner for the mud pit, you should know that when it comes to mud race events in Ireland, less is more – and a simple loincloth can ideally weigh the mud instead of making you heavier mile after mile.
4. Relax And Unwind
At the end of the day, attending a mud race event is all about you. Take your time to relax, unwind and make the most of this event – and your mind and body will thank you!
