As this race is in October, don’t expect to be tiptoeing through the tulips. Instead, you will slog through the mud and encounter 12 obstacles. The race website states, “There will be a splash through the ponds, a hay bale hurdle obstacle, an over-under with irrigation pipe, ravine hill torture, and last but not least a slip and slide to get you from A to B quicker!” Spectators are allowed and encouraged to join in by throwing water balloons at the participants. Participants are allowed to skip obstacles if they feel they cannot complete them, making this event friendly for all ages and abilities. The race start will be in waves of 4-10 people with start times between 11:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. This is a self-timed event that will feature clocks at the start and finish areas so that participants can see their times.
The post-race Brewfest is open to the public for $15 and is discounted to $10 for race participants. This charge gives you a brewfest tasting mug and 3 tastings. Live entertainment will begin at noon and last until 10:00 P.M. 4 food vendors featuring Mexican, Russian, and American food will have food available for purchase, as well.
If you are up for navigating a few obstacles, tackling a muddy course, and being rewarded by some beer tasting; head on out to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and experience the 1st Mud, Sweat, and Beers!
