This blog post is written by our lovable Operations guy, Adam Lueck - he's the guy that makes things happen at all of the Vail Valley Foundation events! His other name is Dr. Mud.
After three years of trial and error, I think I finally have the perfect receipt for mud. Hours upon hours were spent pouring over mud wrestling websites to find the elusive mixture. Just the right amount of this and that and a little water to produce a slippery, gooey, messing mud! Yes I did finally find the perfect mixture. I hopped in the truck this morning and drove 120 miles to a somewhat shady looking warehouse to pick up 400 pounds of the secret ingredient. The warehouse guys loaded me up and I drove back to Vail and tested it out. One cup of the super material and 10 cups of water produced the best mud I have ever seen short of that one mud wrestling site.

This year’s Eddie Bauer Mud Run will be like no other. We have a new location in Golden Peak that puts the 24’x24’ mudpit on a smooth and level surface. Combine that will a run over some real obstacles this year and you have the making for an epic adventure. I have a few other tricks up my sleeve this year so don’t miss out. Register early as the event is limited and will sell out fast!
Just plan on wearing clothes you don’t mind getting real dirty because this year the mudpit is going to be unlike any you have ever seen before, unless you happened to be on one of those websites I was “researching”.
