    Seems like kind of the next level up from a Warrior Dash type of thing. I did a Mud Chasers (a less well-established) brand of these obstacle run tnghis) and I’m not sure these types of events are really for me, but parts of it looked fun. I think I’d be in a really bad mood by the end though and not take too kindly being hit with American Gladiator pugil sticks.
