Imagine trudging through more than six miles of muck, mud and dirty water. Imagine having to scale walls, walk across a bed of fire, crawl on your belly through a mud puddle and slide headfirst down a steep hill caked in wet dirt. This may all sound like some treacherous form of cruel and unusual punishment, but Saturday, at the Twin Cities MS Mud Run, over 3,000 people chose to do all those things with a smile on their face and determination in their hearts.
Mud Run MS, held at Trollhaugen in Dresser, is a 10K race through a military-style obstacle course made of mud. One of the fastest growing adventure races in the country, this year’s event featured teams of five, two, or one competing in the co-ed, all-male or all-female divisions. Participants in the MS Mud Run paid a $60 enrollment fee and were tasked with raising $100 in donations before being allowed to participate. With over 3,000 racers, that’s a lot of cash raised to assist in the research necessary to find a cure for this fatal disease.
