Get Dirty With These 11 Mud Runs and Obstacle Races in Michigan in 2023
Summer is almost here so get ready to get dirty.
When the summer weather graces the people of Michigan, the outdoor activities are endless. The Mitten has it all from camping to fishing and golfing to foot races. When it comes to foot races, there are plenty of races to test your endurance and abilities.
Mud runs and obstacle races have become very popular in Michigan in the last decade. The state boasts so many great places to host mud runs and obstacle races including ski resorts, mud bogs, and more. Check out 11 of these fun and challenging courses below.
Even though my body doesn't agree with me, I love a good mud run or obstacle course. At one point in my younger days, I took on a 15-mile Warrior Dash. It was a blast but was also the point where I decided to step away for a few years...it was brutal. I changed things up and limited myself to just the 5k runs and they are great.
Many of the mud races throughout Michigan also have some cool features to get you on board. For example, the Midwest Canine Obstacle Run in Benton Harbor gives you the opportunity to run the races with your faithful dog at your side and the Muddy Princess race series is for women only. You can find a race for everyone in Michigan.
Good luck and have a blast in the mud! Check out all of the races below and challenge yourself this summer.
