The Texas Mud Series hosts the Jailbreak DFW 5K Mud Run, September 22, at DFW Adventure Park, in Roanoke. The off-grid adventure is one of four in a series of Jailbreak mud runs in Texas that challenges thrillseekers of all fitness levels and age (14 and over).
The course is a relatively flat, 3.1-mile course with 16 to 20 wet and muddy, fun-filled but challenging obstacles, including mud pits, cargo nets, ramps, muddy slopes and trails, knee-high ravines and mazes.
Runners compete at their own pace to the best of their abilities, participating in a form of exercise and bonding experience that instills confidence in overcoming obstacles individually or in partnership.
Great effort is taken in assuring the course design and obstacle engineering is safe, including the fact that there is no swimming obstacle in a Jailbreak event. Qualified emergency workers are stationed throughout the race course to insure safety. The event will be held rain or shine.
Following the run, participants are encouraged to trade stories and relax over BBQ and beverages, while enjoying live music. Meal tickets are purchased separately. Online registration closes September 19.
Location: 13055 Cleveland Gibbs Rd., Roanoke. For more information, visit RunTheJailbreak.com.
