Mud And War Run at Isleta Amphitheater August 26, 2017

Mud And War Run is a 5k challenge taking participants through thick mud and obstacle. The experience is somewhat reminiscent of famous battles, aiming to raise awareness of some of the horrors soldiers of the past have experienced. Participants have to endure barbed wire, trenches, three-foot deep mud, and underwater mud-swimming, all to push themselves to the limits.  Use the Groupon banner link below to get tickets for $40 vs. $66.

 

The run kicks off at 9 a.m, 9:20 a.m, 9:40 a.m and 10am August 26, 2017. Obstacles and challenges include slush pits, narrow mud-filled trenches, wires and nets, in addition to special scenes modeled after historic battles of the US military. The event supports Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit building specially adapted homes for war veterans.

The ‘MUD AND WAR RUN’ encourages our participants, called ‘Muddy Grunts’, to maneuver through 5Ks of mud, obstacles and special scenes depicting famous battles.  Mud Runs or Obstacle Runs are primarily based on the military boot camp experience, yet none of them delve into the real reason troops go through that boot camp experience in the first place.  Those troops are training for war.  A ‘MUD AND WAR RUN’ event gives Muddy Grunts a glimpse of what our troops have been through in boot camp, but also insight into what they have been through on the battlefield.  As a Muddy Grunt you will go through mud pits, navigate obstacles and move through scenes recreating battles such as D’Day, Iwo Jima, or Gettysburg.  These battle scenes will be intense, exciting and unlike anything most of you have been through before.  The event is not timed and is aimed to encourage all Muddy Grunts to help each other whenever and wherever needed.  No one gets left behind.

Please Note: we are not war mongers or lovers of war.  We fully appreciate and respect those who have gone before us to fight for the freedoms we enjoy.  We hope when ‘MUD AND WAR RUN’ participants experience just a hint of what our veterans have gone through, they will gain a greater appreciation for our veterans and understand a little bit more about the real experiences they have endured.  Thank you veterans for fighting to maintain the freedom we have and thank you for allowing us the privilege to enjoy an event such as this MUD AND WAR RUN.
