Here are some highlights from Amber’s recap of the 2014 event:
The race was very muddy and I remember at one point chuckling to myself as fellow runners were splashing mud as they ran by that the race was very appropriately named – mudslinger. There were sections of the course that were dry, some that were the thick sticky mud that claims shoes, some that were very slippery and some sections that were more like running through a stream rather than a trail. The course elevation was rough, with sections of uphill that made me question whether or not I had any leg muscles as they seemed to be failing me.
I typically run with headphones during all my races but for this one I decided to take my ear buds out and just enjoy listening to the sounds of nature –the trickling streams and the chirping birds were very pleasant and peaceful.
Anyways, this race is the perfect amount of crazy and you can’t really go wrong with a RWA race. The field is limited and spots are filling fast, so get signed up ASAP.
