Does this look like fun?

Congratulations Ashley T., Paulina D. and Marcus M., for completing our Elements Workshop curriculum!

The rise of CrossFit has spawned a range of local and nationwide events, multi-modal adventure races, designed to “test” one’s fitness and general tolerance—to bottomless rhetoric in some cases. This year, some of these events include: RunAmuck (April), Warrior Dash (May), Death Race (June), Metro Dash (July) and Tough Mudder (October).

Last May, a team of MPH athletes traveled to Pennsylvania for the Tough Mudder. This year, with road races, Olympic lifting and powerlifting meets, and CrossFit competitions on the horizon, would you like to add one or some of these events to our list? Let us know if any of these interest you, and we will form a team.

Rest today.

    I had previously signed up for the Warrior Dash in May. I’m running on Saturday.

    i did warrior dash last year. thought it would be cool with all the obstacles… not that it wasn’t, but don’t expect it to kick your butt… it was basically a three mile run with a few minor challenges. the race is also very region-dependent. i did it in NY with on a ski course– the constant change in elevation made it more challenging than the flat-courses i hear others participate in…

    that being said, i’m totally down for tough mudder. and it’s 4x longer than warrior dash. including the elevation changes. that’s some scary nonsense. how did the team fair last year?

    I did the April Run Amuck in Rockville last year, and did not find it that fun or challenging. There was one little wall to scale, and we had to wait in line for 10 minutes to do so.
    I do recommend, however, the Run Amuck in August in Quantico. This is a 5K course that the Marines use. Also, this is part of the Marine Corps Marathon series–for any of those interested in the big race, they offer deals.

    happy running! CS

    The Tough Mudder was a fun day. I would do it again.
