Look how happy all these people and their dogs are!
Human + dog mud races is a brilliant idea! The Venn diagram of exercise, mud, and dog enthusiasts likely has a lot of overlap. This concept will attract a huge number of participants.
The muddy races are a hit with humans and canines alike.
“The Muddy Dog Challenge is an event like no other,” said an event spokesperson. “Where else can you experience a fun, muddy obstacle course alongside your canine companion? The challenges are suitable for all runners from experienced racers to eager beginners – and everyone in between.”
This dog is literally smiling.
Dogs smile when they run. Even some humans do. (Weird.) This race seems to have all human and canine participants smiling.
If you've ever wanted to participate in a muddy obstacle race, this could be the kind of event for you.
You know your dog is already on board. Good luck getting the wet dog smell out of your car after driving home from the race though. Also, you can’t ever get mad at your dog for rolling in mud again.
Participating in an obstacle course alongside your dog has some risks though.
No matter who you are, your dog is better than you. Your dog is more agile, faster, and will not hesitate. Race participants know they may incur some bruising when they enter these obstacle course races. When entering with a dog, though, the bruises could be to your ego.
