Mud Guts & Glory is a MUST-DO obstacle race

By: Jeff Cain

If you have wanted to experience a REAL and challenging obstacle race, you now have the chance.  Mud Guts & Glory, just past King's Island, in Ohio has quickly become one of the premiere races in the country.  This permanent 5 mile course sits in the middle of some of the gnarliest terrain in the state, boasts some incredible obstacles, and will test the will of any competitor.  It has been chosen as the venue for the first OCR World Championship race in October.  Their fourth race will take place on Aug 16th and will attract some of the country's premiere obstacle racers.  Don't let this scare you though, because Mud Guts & Glory is still a fun race with a family atmosphere and is completable by athletes of all levels. You can read past reviews here and here and here.
