Muddy Watters Trail Series
If you're looking for blow up walls, bubbles and beer tents, this is not your event. I've been hosting trail based events for masochistic trail running purest since 2004. My events are small, capped at 150 racers. They are HARD... brutal courses through and over two tracks, open trails, rivers, stairs, hills, old and overgrown forest paths and other sometimes hard to follow routes. That's the point - it's not supposed to be easy. You'll feel beat down, broken and used up at the end. You'll also know that you just finished one of the toughest short course trail runs in the midwest. We keep costs and race fees low. We're able to do this through the support of our amazing and always local sponsors. Please support those that support us. Without them, your race fees would hurt much more than your legs will
Muddy Watters Trick or Treat Trail Run 2 - October 20th and 21st
It will be hard, you will get wet... this is not a run with a blow up wall at the end. Total distance of this event will be roughly 6 miles depending on route choices (follow the flags!). We'll pre run the course (most of it) on the Wednesday prior to race day. Anyone registered is encouraged to be there. For this year we'll be covering the "two towers". The course will take you back and forth between the sledding hill and collarbone hill on the backside of the park, using the hillside mountain bike trail. You'll traverse back and forth until completing the set # of hill repeats at each spot. Think 3 at one spot, run to the other for 3, back to the first for 2... etc. It'll suck, you're welcome. You're also going to cover some straight ahead running where you'll get a chance to stretch your legs out and get some speed, but you're also going to be doing some river running where you won't. This is a two day event (you don't have to run both days - you do have to run day 1 though). The difference between the two will be that on day 2 you'll run the course in the opposite direction. Your time will be the faster of the two.
