JOIN THE MOB. The Mud Mob, that is.
If you’ve never answered the call of the mud, fear not. Although it might seem uber-intimidating to power full speed over miles of ditches and hills, the dirty little secret of these races is that many participants walk the majority of the course.
There’s no shame in walking between obstacles—or even around the scary ones—but you’ll feel best if you’re ready to conquer the event. And we have just the plan to get you there.
Follow this eight-week program of integrated workouts that combine running with movements that mimic the challenges and rhythms of an obstacle race. This way, you’ll be prepared to leap over walls, move quickly while carrying logs or buckets of gravel, and wiggle effortlessly through tubes and freshly dug tunnels.
"MUD MOB" is a beginner 5K mud run training program designed for people who are currently inactive or new to running and walking. While we focus on beginners, all levels of walkers and runners are welcome. The program is structured to help you cross the finish line in just 8 weeks! Along the way, we’ll provide you with motivation to keep you moving, weekly group training events, and educational clinics. We will cover topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury. You can do this!
