Fun-loving Canadians who are up for a challenge in 2013 can become Mud Heroes this summer! Mud Heroes combines an intense (but incredibly fun) obstacle course with with huge mud pits at each station.
While the locations have changed from year to year, the excitement level is still incredibly high. Alumni participants often register within hours of the website offering registration, causing sites all over Canada to sell out quickly. 'Fresh meat' is always welcome, of course, and all the newbies are encouraged to come out and get dirty! Remember -- while this is designed as a challenge, it's more "laughter and cheers" than "blood, sweat and tears".
You can find this year's mud-friendly events in Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, Winnipeg, Red Deer and Toronto. The Westerners will be out in full force at the Red Deer, AB location on August 10, 2013 -- they have already sold out 3 of the 13 waves, so register now to save your spot!
To keep yourself in mud-ready shape, pick up a Garmin Forerunner to help you train. Rope swinging, mud-crawling, tunnel-diving, and more all await you on this exciting obstacle run, so you'd better be ready! The Forerunner's 'virtual partner' will push you to keep your pace, while the heart rate monitor will reassure you that you're still alive when you feel like your ticker is about to burst out of your chest. For even more fun, challenge your friends to a healthy competition by comparing data on Garmin Connect, their interactive fitness website. Loser gets mud in the eye!
