Recently I, along with a group of friends, finished a Tuff Scrambler 5K Adventure Run. This race was an obstacle run, where we had to climb, jump, run, crawl and even swim through 3.1 miles of trails and obstacles. For some, it was their first 5K. For all of us, it was an adventure in our running skills.

Have you ever thought about competing in one of these events?

There are several out there now, teasing people of all abilities to get muddy, dirty and wet. From Muddy Buddies to Spartan Races these events, which come in different distances and various skill levels, are filling up race calendars throughout the year.

Our group consisted of both males and females, those who have ran their first 5K to those who have run long distances, and those who never thought they could accomplish this event. Everyone finished the race, many of us working together as a team and crossing the finish line with smiles on our face and high fives in the air. It was a blast.
