It is almost that time of the year! Time for the UPCOUNTRY FAIR, Mudrun 2019! I’ve seen some people go through mud runs like it was nothing(Myself yo!. I have also seen a lot of people almost pass out on them because they didn’t know how just how to tackle. So before 6th comes, here we have lined up tips on what you need to look out for before you come for the mud run!
1. WATCH OTHERS TACKLE OBSTACLES FIRST
Mud pits, rope ladders and walls are just a few of the MUST FACE obstacles on the course that has been designed this year. There’s nothing wrong with taking a few steps back and watching how some more seasoned competitors go about it, As usual, a team of marshalls will run on the course just to prove its doable, you need watch them out see the tricks the use to get over an obstacle.
2. STAY HYDRATED
Yes, staying hydrated is a big part of any race.
3. BRING A FRIEND MAKE A FRIEND
Other than making the event more fun, a running buddy or two can be a big help during a mud run. Losing a shoe, getting stuck in a mud pit and struggling to make it over the top of an obstacle are all challenges you’ll face during the race. Having a partner to help clean up your mistakes (and vice versa) makes things much easier than going the course alone.
4.DON’T CRAWL ON YOUR KNEES
There will likely be obstacles you’ll have to get low to pass under. While your first instinct will be to crawl, this isn’t the best choice.
