The Muddy Buddy features a 7 mile course and 5 obstacles. At the start of the race, one team member runs and other rides the bike. At the 1st obstacle, the rider will drop the bike, complete the obstacle, and begin running. The runner will arrive, complete the obstacle, find their bike, and begin riding. Teams will continue leapfrogging each other through the entire course. At the end of the race, racers will crawl through the infamous Mud Pit crossing the finish line together!
It was a cold rainy day for Joe and I. Several other FitBooters also came to race, including Charla. The biking was terrible. The “dirt” at Myles Standish Park is sand. Soft sand. It was a tough slog on the sandy portion and bone-jarring on the pavement. The mudpit ended up being more brown water than sand.
