What do you wear to a mud run?

What do you wear to a mud run?  For those that are new, or returning but need a refresher, we have a the top 5 suggestions from the seasoned Mud Mashers…
  1. Dress practical. You want to avoid cotton and anything heavy. Don’t wear big, cotton t-shirts or sweatpants. …
  2. Protection. There are obstacles in a mud run that can cause cuts and bruises. … consider wearing knee pads
  3. Durable clothing. Our obstacles are demanding. … Most people wear leggings or long workout pants to protect their legs through the obstacles
  4. Footwear.  Start with great socks and wear shoes that you aren’t hoping to preserve (its likely they will be so muddy that you will want to trash them).
  5. Duct tape.  Consider taping your shoes before the run, shoes can easily get sucked off of your feet and stuck in the mud (I know because it happened to me the very first time and I ran the rest of the race with a ton of mud in them – it was terribly uncomfortable).

Fun in the mud …

I’m in love with mud,
It’s sad, I know, but true.
I just can’t help but splash in it,
Or stomp a path right through.

It’s sticky and it’s dirty,
And it covers all my clothes.
But when I see it lying there,
A voice inside me grows…

…You can’t resist, you know I’m right,
It’s fun to play in mud!
Look at it just sitting there,
I really think you should!

I splatter in the grimy gloop,
I can’t resist the ooze!
I run, I jump, I stamp about,
It drips into my shoes!

Mud Mash Blast from the Past

Its always fun to look at old pictures and remember when …

At Redding Sunrise Rotary we’re remembering you and the fun we had in past years. When we look back we think about the amazing challenges each of you overcame during this event and the pure laughter at each obstacle. Sometimes that laughter is “YES, I did it” or “WOW that was really muddy!”. But you know what, you did it and you did it well. We are amazed at the number of families, friends, kids and season Mud Mash/Mud Run veterans who show up to support our fund raising event, year after year!

Thank you, your participation has contributed to programs Redding Sunrise Rotary has established for scholarships, student recognitions and other educational support programs in our community.

We hope to see you this year on September 29, 2018. Sign up today at nashranchmudmash.com or https://www.raceentry.com/races/nash-ranch-mud-mash/2018/register. Check-in begins at 12 noon, race begins at 2pm. Parking is FREE!

Mud Mash 2017 throwback, remembering the fun!

Mud runs are obstacle courses that have a muddy twist and the families and friends who  joined in our run last year experienced this first hand. Our Nash Ranch Mud Mash is more about having fun and getting messy with friends than showing off your impressive rock climbing and mud crawling skills. Its time for a little throw back fun from our Nash Ranch Mud Mash 2017 event (September 2017).

A few fun facts from 2017
We had over 400 participants
More than 1/2 were on teams (its more fun when you’re running with friends and family)
Over 60% were Female (Boys, come on … it’s time to play in the mud)
Most teams have a theme and/or wear a costume (we’ve seen Richard Simmons, Batman and other Super hero’s and a lot more!)

Come join us, registration is open now for September 29, 2018. Register early and receive an early registration discount of $5 each.

Richard Simmons?

In 2016 some might remember Richard Simmons in the house.  Was it really?
