With a handful of events taking place around the country and little ways to find other like minded enthusiasts to share these experiences with, Muddy Race’s founder Rob Foulkes had a vision – to create something where all these events could be listed, explored and discussed in one place to create a community online.
A “home” for Obstacle Racing in the UK and “Muddy Race” was born. From day 1 Rob was determined to promote Obstacle Racing, tell the world how great these events are and get people talking to each other. As this grew, from a passionate following to over 270 races in one year, Muddy Race’s focus expanded to create a friendly community to encourage each other’s fitness goals, connect lovers of obstacle racing from all fitness abilities to find their next challenge.
After a few years in the making, in 2013 “Team Muddy Race” was formed – a team of individuals, no matter their ability or previous fitness prowess, to motivate each other, inspire others to get off the couch and a way to share the joy of getting muddy with now over 1,500 members wearing the green t-shirt at events around the country.
Since the beginning we have welcomed newbies to experts, fat people to thin people, a UK OCR champion, and all the whole promoted OCR through all of us. More importantly Team Muddy Race has created relationships, friendships and even a marriage proposal!
The family and friendly feel of the community is what makes it stand out. A simple wave, friendly hand in the mud or a shout of encouragement awaits Team Muddy Race members at their next event, all easy enabled by the ability to customise your Muddy Race top with your name on the back.
You’re not just a number or customer, you have a personality and will be recognised as an individual by other Muddy Race members.
