You dirty runner, you!
Prepare to get down and dirty at this year’s Arizona Mudathon in Scottsdale. This annual event draws a diverse crowd from everyday athletes to enthused, agro racers. AZ Mudathon is most definitely not an average road race. Taking place in the heart of Scottsdale’s rugged desert terrain, the 5-mile course is set to challenge the athlete in each racer.
More than simply running the mileage, the course features a number of obstacles for racers to scale such as: freestanding walls, tire pits, monkey bars, cargo nets, hurdles, and mud pits that require swimming from one side to the other, among many, many other challenges. An individual racer will only be timed if you opt into that option at time of registration.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three timed finishers, so prepare to go hard. Make sure to come with a change of clothes because being wet and muddy is never comfortable beyond the glee of playing piggy for a day.
On your mark, get set… race on!
