The Mile High City will soon be able to etch another mud obstacle run into the books. The Merrell Down and Dirty National Mud and Obstacle Series presented by Subaru is making a stop at the Aurora Sports Park this coming Sunday. Event organizers expect a turnout of about 1,500 people ready to brave the elements. Those throwing on racing jerseys can expect to run, crawl and climb through military style obstacles. “Adventure style races have become a fitness revolution. People constantly want to change up their workouts and use different muscles,” says Marketing Coordinator, Suzie Davis.
It’s your choice to sign up for either the 5k or 10k. If you are looking for more obstacles the 10k is your style. Make like an inchworm through the low crawl and tunnels. Hold on tight as you cargo climb to the top of an inflatable slide. Navigate through obstacles after throwing a weighted sandbag over your shoulder.
No matter how challenging the obstacles sound they are meant to be fun over intimidating. “It’s great especially if you are trying to break into adventure racing. We aren’t trying to scare anyone away. We are an event that anyone can do.” says Administrator of Athlete Services, Erica Taylor.
It’s also a family friendly event! Kiddo’s ages 4-6 can race in a 100 yard dash and soak through a murky put after. Kids ages 7-13 can come out for the 1 mile race filled with mini obstacles.
*Also come prepared for the pre race pulled up contest! The winner receives $110 dollars to merrell.com
*Don’t leave in a rush! After the race is a post race celebration filled with BBQ and music. (Included in registration)
*Bring a change of clothes and shoes for after the race
