The Original Mud Run Houston
Are you ready to play DIRTY? Don't worry, we are too! The Original Mud Run is a 5K/10K military style obstacle course.
Take on the 5K, 3.1 mile course with 18 plus obstacles and or 10K, 6.2 mile course with 30+ military style obstacles.
There are approximately 18-20 obstacles to overcome along the 3.1 Mile course and approximately 30 obstacles to overcome along the 6.2 Mile course, most of which contain water and mud. Although none of the obstacles are impossible, they do require a certain level of strength and fitness and the potential exists for serious injury or death due to falls, trips and crawling. Obstacles can be taken at any pace or skipped completely and thus the course is able to be completed by most anyone.
In the COMPETITION division obstacles must be attempted 3 times, however, if a competitive runner feels unsafe attempting the obstacle, they are encouraged to go around the obstacle. Not attempting the obstacle the required three times will disqualify you from prize eligibility The only exception is with obstacles that involve swimming where an alternate route is available. Should a competitive runner choose the alternate route instead of completing the swim obstacle they will not be penalized as the added run distance will be included in his/her overall time.
