USMC Ultimate Mud Run Challenge

The second week of October, my husband participated in the USMC Ultimate Mud Run Challenge. It was the first mud run he has ever participated in, and he had so much fun! It was a great course, and is supposedly the first mud run of its kind. Not sure if that is correct, but their tagline is “Often imitated, never duplicated.” you must sign up as a team, however you could choose to compete, or complete. Of course, my husband and his friends chose to compete. We arrived at 8am for a start time of 8:45am. Easy parking, and bag check! Very organized! I had assumed it would not be, simply because a lot of males planned the details, but I was happily surprised.

We parted ways. For the first time ever, I was spectating and NOT racing. I thought I had a plan of which obstacles to see them at, but that went out the window in 2 seconds. I decided to meet them at the #18th obstacle.

There was a holdup at the #19 obstacle. So what did the marine's have the challengers do? Jumping Jacks, of course!

This was the swamp bath that looked like so much! I tried to get as close as possible with taking a picture, and ended up walking in the swamp. :(

Up and over! This was an easier one. I didn't get to take pictures of all of the hard ones....they were too far into the woods.
