ORRINGTON – Athletes from around the nation will soon gather in Orrington for the “Wicked Muddy Mainer Race.”
The organizers said the race is similar to the other big obstacle races held around the country, but said there will be more to do.
The race is set for July 1st, it will include difficult ramps, water obstacles and more. It’s expected to be a true test of endurance, but is open to anyone who wants to give it a try.
Organizer Dan Thornton said “Me and my buddies sat down and decided what we liked and didn’t like about other races. Some of the other races felt you traveled all the distance and then you ran the race and there was nothing to do. So what we’re encouraging here is to get people to stay and play with us for the day.”
There will also be rope climbing, tug of wars and even jousting. A beer tent featuring four breweries will also be part of the event.
