As for our course we believe that you sign up for an obstacle/mud run for the Obstacles and the Mud or you would just sign up for any old run. Our course consists of 3.2 miles and 26+, yes that’s right 26+ obstacles, not counting the obstacle of the natural terrain. Although we have water, mud, and muck none of it is deep. There is NO swimming and we DO NOT allow diving of any kind.
The big difference in our course is that most obstacles, you can choose your own challenge. Here you can choose how far you want to push yourself. Our obstacles have a normal side and an Extreme side. If you’re the Extreme athlete looking to push your limits or your the first timer just looking to get off the couch and try something new this is the course for you. All participants receive a Race Jersey, custom medal, 1 free refreshment, and a lot of Black Swamp Mud to take home.
* Participants must be registered at least 10 days before the event to guarantee a race jersey *
Once done if you choose not to take home all the mud on you, we have dozens of wash stations. There will be live music, Food and ,drinks.
We also have a Black Swamp Dash Backdrop for that perfect photo to remember the fun. Make it a weekend and rent a campsite from the Ottawa County Fair Grounds located just feet from the course.
