Event Name: Mud-Stash 5k

Event Details (parking, facilities, vendors, schwag, etc.):

This was one of my favorite races of 2013.  Being at a Ski resort and having the race at dusk was a blast.  Parking was free and easy to access.  The course itself was fun and has unique challenges you will not see other places (Lilly pad run). One of the best parts of this adventure was the post race shower.  In the Mud-Stash you will be covered in mud from head to toe.  After the race Perfect north had supplied hot showers in trailers.  This was one of the coolest things i have ever experienced in my running. After a hot shower you feel happy to hang around, relax, and enjoy the evening.   Every finisher receives a massive medal in the shape of a mustache covered in mud.  This medal is still the biggest in my collection, and is an awesome piece of swag.  Post race there were fireworks, live music, a beer garden, food, as well as a porch where you could watch people finish up the race.

Race Details (length, obstacles, difficulty, etc.):

5K  with Mud pits, ice baths, Lilly pad run, and many more cool unique obstacles.  Anyone can accomplish this at their own pace.

Rating: 5 Stars (Excellent)

What would make this race better?: Great race, can’t wait to tun the 10K version.
