Two team members from Linda Craft & Team recently participated in the Big Muddy Challenge mud run with their children!
This family-friendly event was held in Youngsville at Hill Ridge Farms on September 6th, where kids six and older were encouraged to get muddy with their family, celebrate teamwork, and create memories together.
Here’s what our team members loved about the mud run!
Fun Times with Family and Friends
The Big Muddy Challenge is an annual event occurring twice a year in May and September, bringing friends, family, and coworkers closer together. This year, there were approximately 10 obstacles, some much muddier than the others.
Kim Crump’s Experience with Her Daughters
Kim Crump did the event with her two girls, age 12 and 7.
Sydney (12yrs) said “I didn’t expect it to be as cool as it was and the obstacles were awesome. I actually enjoyed getting really dirty and muddy.”
Ashley (7yrs) said “I thought it was awesome because it was all gooey and really deep and I got to spend time with my sister and my mom, so it was fun for me!”
Chandra Green’s Experience with Her Husband and Son
Chandra Green did the event with her husband and 6 year old son, Ethan. After a rough start with losing footing in the very slippery mud at the first obstacle, everyone recovered and finished together as a team.
It’s not a “mud run” without getting dirty!
For kids (or adults) who are a little nervous about this type of event, you can pass on any obstacle that you aren’t comfortable with — you can cheer on others and support your team from the side and then move on to the next one.
Big Muddy Challenge: Great for Making Memories
It was a fantastic family event and all who participated will have great memories. Kim and Chandra are already discussing plans to attend the Big Muddy Challenge next year in the Raleigh area.
It would make a great team building activity for groups as well as for families. Bring towels, a change of clothes, and your strong will to power through! Let us know if you want to learn more about this event or similar events in the Raleigh area — we would love to share our experiences.
