Mud run obstacles.
While many people are afraid of them, staying in the comfort of jogging and running – there are also people who love taking advantage of them and battling them in style. If you are the first type, you definitely need some time preparing for this year’s Runamuck Challenge and the obstacles it holds.
But wait…. What obstacles should you expect to battle with this year – in the most popular mud race event in Ireland?
Dirt, Mud And More Dirt
For a lot of people, the dirt and mud is the biggest obstacle at the Runamuck Challenge. If you are wondering why that’s the case – it’s simple. When your shirt gets two kilos of mud, you are heavier and running is harder. We hope you’re prepared to support the dirt on your body and be a true mud warrior!
Twists And Turns On Different Terrains
Just like many other mud race events, The Runamuck Challenge will take you across different terrains. Your feet will run on grass, mud, slippery surfaces and paved roads. Start preparing for the different terrains!
Slides And Ditches
Sliding on mud has never been any better. Once you climb a hill, the sliding fun begins. And when it comes to ditches, it is important to know the perfect timing to pass them – especially when surrounded with a dozen people around you.
Streams And Bogs
Does The Runamuck Challenge include watery streams and rivers?
Yes, it does. And you should prepare your feet for it. In fact, the watery streams make the race more fun – and make most of your strength. From bogs to streams, you should know that water is a big part of the mud run obstacles.
Bale Jumps And Net Scrambles
Are you that good in jumping – as you are in running? Or maybe crawling?
The obstacles combine every single physical activity you are (not) prepared for – and adding a lot of mud to the story. The bale jumps and net scrambles will test your endurance and see if you are that smart when crawling and jumping as you are when running your full sprint.
If all of these activities sound exciting to you and you can’t wait to book your spot for The Runamuck Challenge this year, click here and register for the race – a week before the official start!
