If you're looking for blow up walls, bubbles and beer tents, this is not your event. I've been hosting trail based events for masochistic trail running purest since 2004. My events are small, capped at 150 racers. They are HARD... brutal courses through and over two tracks, open trails, rivers, stairs, hills, old and overgrown forest paths and other sometimes hard to follow routes. That's the point - it's not supposed to be easy. You'll feel beat down, broken and used up at the end. You'll also know that you just finished one of the toughest short course trail runs in the Midwest. We keep costs and race fees low. We're able to do this through the support of our amazing and always local sponsors. Please support those that support us. Without them, your race fees would hurt much more than your legs will - check them out on the sponsors page
NO WATER! Ok, that being said, the rest will still suck. Muddy Watters #2 will have lots of hills, lots of switchbacks, lots of bushwhacking, lots of hills - sorry, said that already. Plan on 4 miles of "sucks". Tough course that everyone will fall in love with. If not, that's cool too. On a long enough timeline, everyone's survival rate drops to 0 anyway.
