Have you recently run through a finish line caked in mud from head to toe? If so, you’re not alone. More than 3 million people(!) completed an obstacle race last year, a number that is expected to continue to grow year on year.
If you’ve never answered the call of the mud, fear not. Although it might seem uber-intimidating to power full speed over miles of ditches and hills, the dirty little secret of these races is that many participants walk the majority of the course.
There’s no shame in walking between obstacle or even around the scary one but you’ll feel best if you’re ready to conquer the event. And we have just the plan to get you there.
Follow this six-week program of integrated workouts that combine running with movements that mimic the challenges and rhythms of an obstacle race. This way, you’ll be prepared to leap over walls, move quickly while carrying logs or buckets of gravel, and wiggle effortlessly through claustrophobic-inducing tubes and freshly dug tunnels.
