Race Preview: My Muddy Valentine 2017

Having OCR (Obstacle Course Race) withdrawals? Good news! February always brings a good introductory OCR to help shake off the rust and get you back in that OCR training mode. My Muddy Valentine 5K Mud Run includes lots of mud and 20+ low-key obstacles to help beat the winter blues. What kind of obstacles can you expect? Well, definitely mud. Lots of shoe-sucking mud. And then there are walls, tunnels, tires, hay bales, hills (muddy hills, that is), and more mud.

This event, held just days before Valentine’s day, is also a great creative date for you and your active Valentine. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get dirty with your Valentine!

My Muddy Valentine is held at Lee Farms (Tualatin) and includes a medal, t-shirt, a free beer or cider, food, music, and bonfires. If you want to go home clean, you can purchase a hot shower for $5.

Parking at this event is extremely limited. You can purchase parking passes when you register or park for free at Legacy and take the free shuttle to Lee Farms. Either way, you should definitely carpool.

I’ve participated in this Terrapin Events race for the last several years. It is well-organized, fun, low-key, and great for any level. My recommendation for having the most fun is to expect to get muddy, make sure your shoes are tied tightly and double-knotted so that you can keep them for the entire race, and bring a group of friends. (You may need them to pull you out of the mud!)
