This iReport is part of an assignment:
What if we reduced obesity?
One of the biggest ways to get into shape in San Diego is some sort of race. This is the Mud Run - Held twice a year on Camp Pendleton in Southern California.
The Mud Run is a challenging 10K run with hills, tire obstacles, river crossings, two 5-foot walls with mud on both sides, tunnel crawl, slippery hill climb, and the final 30-foot mud pit. Along the course there will be 6 water points with personnel staged at each. This is the most fun you can have running a 10K!
