Mud Factor 2012 takes over San Bernardino / Devore’s Glen Helen Pavilion on Saturday, April 21, with competitors tackling a fun, challenging obstacles in waves that depart every half hour, with the first available wave starting at 9:30 a.m.
Each year, Mud Factor plows into towns across the country towing along a fun yet challenging course full of obstacles and mud to trudge through. It’s 5 kilometers of dirty, sweaty madness that pits runners not against each other, but against their own expectations. After donning event bibs, T-shirts, and bandanas and threatening timing chips into their proper places on shoelaces, runners rocket off the starting line in waves, dashing away to prove their superior hardcoreness to steep hills, muddy pits, and inner demons. Costumes are encouraged—be they Mud-Thing ensembles or strategically placed speedos—for racers who’d rather rock their own style. By conquering the course, participants win the right to don achievement medals; those who’ve successfully wrestled life for legal-drinking status can celebrate their mastery of Mud Factor with a mug of beer.
