Mud Titan at Roberts Ranch is a ‘70s-themed 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) run that combines hills, trails, obstacles, water and mud, lots of mud, into a fun, family event to entertain and challenge every fitness level.
Now in its second year, the Sept. 6, 2014 Mud Titan’s diverse Plant City ranch setting is attracting first-timers, seasoned competitors and teams from throughout the country.
Participants ages 6 to 96 will appreciate the natural shade provided by numerous trees on the property, as their endurance, strength and agility are tested on more than 30 obstacles consisting of mud bogs, ropes courses, climbing walls, cargo nets, ring swings, even a roaring fire jump. Each obstacle will test different skills, and with each, new bonds and friendships will be formed.
The adult run is open to ages 12 and older, and team participation is encouraged. For those looking for an extra challenge, Mud Titan has added an Egg Wave, wherein participants will complete the course carrying an egg. Those who make it back to the finish line with their egg unbroken will be eligible for additional awards, as well as price breaks and free registrations for future events.
For age six to 12, there is the specifically designed 15-obstacle, one-mile Mini Mud Titan course, which is an age appropriate, smaller version of the adult event.
