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.

Tips

*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

Catch Carri nominated for One Lovely Blog Award

Thanks so much to Round the Bend Blog http://kimolgren.wordpress.com/ and Love Living in Colorado http://lovelivingincolorado.wordpress.com/ for nominating CatchCarri.com  the “One Lovely Blog Award!” 

I am excited Catch Carri has been nominated for sharing a unique take on adventures. My focus is to inform and inspire people to engage with the world around them. Even if you are in your home state I can assure you it’s ok to be a tourist!

7 new things about myself

  1. I can’t do a backwards somersault but hope to accomplish this feat someday!
  2. Fitness is another major passion of mine. There is nothing like summiting a 14,000 peak or breaking your own personal record in a half marathon.
  3. When you are in college you don’t always get to be picky about jobs! One of the most eccentric jobs I have had was dressing up as a bobble head Dora the Explorer. Luckily the costume smiled for me because as kids bombarded and nearly tackled me I wasn’t!
  4. Yoga is the most powerful way I have found to tune the world out and come back to center.
  5. I added a second major in college because I wasn’t ready to graduate! I graduated with a dual degree in Technical Journalism and Speech Communications.
  6. I work as writer at a Denver TV Station, a travel correspondent for Trip TV and also have a freelance video production business. I have traveled as far south as Panama to make promotional web videos for my company, First-Take-Features.
  7. Count me out of a swanky hotel! When I am traveling I seek hostels or host family’s to connect with culture.

I am passing the nomination to 15 other blogs that I find are innovative, inspiring and entertaining.

 Rules of acceptance (as mentioned by other bloggers):

*thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post
*share 7 things about yourself
*nominate 15 or so bloggers you admire
*contact your chosen bloggers to let them know
