Race Information

Although it's probably missing some barbed wire, this race is pretty much nature's Tough Mudder. It has an epic variety of grass, sand, puddles, and tons of mud to satisfy any cross country runner, trail/ultra runner or even the curious roadrunner looking for a change. And what could be more fun than getting all warm again with yummy post-race food at the Jericho Sailing Centre?
