Let me start by saying, if this run comes to a town near you, go out and do it! It is a women’s only mud/fun run. Myself and my girlfriends all signed up as soon as we heard about the race. We spent Friday night decorating t-shirts, eating spaghetti, and watching a few movies (Pitch Perfect and Magic Mike). We were signed up for an early wave of the race so it was a fairly early night for all of us.
The check in process and bag check were a piece of cake. We were all amazed at how much more calm and organized an all women’s event is compared to others.
After a quick group warm up we were off! The race was a 5k, weaving through the fields of a farm and along the Merrimack River. Some of the obstacles we hit were tires, wall climbing, several mud pits, and a massive blow up slide that (of course) ended in a pool of muddy water.
I’m glad we chose to do an early wave because the sun was hot beating down on us. Luckily we had the regular doses of muddy water to cool us off.
At the finish there were dozen of hoses to clean off at the end and a changing room for us to get out of our mud soaked clothes.
Overall it was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it to everyone!
