Mud and obstacle races also known as mud runs. The obstacle course race format is based on a typical military style based training regimen. Listed below are the best of class including Spartan and Warrior Dash Series. These types of races require good cardio and upper body strength on top of a strong will to deal with the often nasty environments you are required to traverse during a race. Expect to climb walls, crawl under barbed wire, wade waist high in mud pits, rope climbs both vertical and horizontal. Expect multiple obstacles and traversing rough trails. It is a blast !! Best training is running, weights and cross-fit. Everything from 3k to 10k plus miles in length.
