The Tire Factory Black Widow Mud and Sun Run is coming back on August 2nd for the second year out at Horn Rapids Motorsports Complex. This year I came up with five ideas at our brainstorming meeting that I thought would elevate the quality of the run for both participants and observers but they were rejected. Here they are in all there glory.

1- Dirt Eater - The basic idea is that they have to eat a small cup of mud, or at least pour it in their mouths before they can move on.

2-Mud or Poop - This idea would definitely involve body washing and sanitation after. The basic idea is the runner has to choose if a cup of 'mudlike' material is poop or mud. Get it wrong they have to sit in the poop tub for one minute and try again.

3-Mud Belly Flop Pit - This is probably going to happen someday, just not this year. Pretty self explanatory, a huge pool of mud with a diving board for Mud Belly flops!

4-Gladiator Mud Pit - Advanced runners can opt in for a gladiator experience where a gladiator keeps you from completing obstacles, just like the old show 'American Gladiators'. If that seems too intense, then you could make it one obstacle like a mud pit with the same premise, but I think it should be the whole course.

5-Mud Wrestling - Can't get by an obsticle, you can wrestle in the mud for 5 minutes and then you can pass, but not until you are good and muddy. I also think they should have bleachers at each mud wrestling pit for fans!

Because you can never get enough mud wrestling!

One last thing, If you register before July 1st, you can get a deal on registration for the Black Widow Mud & Sun Run through SEIZE THE DEAL for only $35!
