All kids will receive a Dirty Rascals Medal and Event T-shirts
After the event there will be entertainment and refreshments available!
Llandaff RFC Under 9’s ran the Dirty little Rascals Course last year and the feedback we had from one little lad was very positive. He said, “This is the best day of my life, no its the fourth best day after the day I was born and Christmas and mmm no its the 3rd best day, this is better than Halloween” We’ll settle for that!!!
Mud Runs are getting more and more popular and the following questions, answers and hints may help you in your preparation to make the event more enjoyable or decision as to whether the mud run is for you!
Q. How fit do you have to be?
A. We don’t mind if you walk or run the course but you have to be fit enough to cover 5 miles cross country, whilst climbing under and over obstacles and wading through mud and ponds. It is tough but achievable!
Q. What are the obstacles?
A. The obstacles are mainly all natural, and the man made ones are designed to blend in to the rural environment. The main thing to remember in your preparation is that the obstacles are not technical so you should be able to manage them all. However if you do not fancy any particular obstacle there is always an option to pass on it!
Q. What training should I do?
A. As with anything you should train for what you are going to be doing, therefore we strongly recommend you should incorporate the following into your training plans; Cross Country Running, some strength training and cold water/muddy bog training to acclimatise. You do not want the day of the event to be your first experience of the Mud and Cold! For further tips and plans please contact us.
Q. What is the difference between The May Run and The December Run?
A. Well the obvious is the temperatures! But don’t let that fool you we have had mild December Runs and Cold May Runs, it doesn’t matter which one you sign up for you have to be prepared for inclement weather and the ponds will be chilly whatever the month. But as a rule you can expect the December course to be Wetter, Muddier and colder. The May one is a little bit longer, a bit more climbing and more chance of getting nettle stings
Q. How do we prepare for the cold?
A. We have had hypothermia cases at our mud run events and the vast majority of these have come about once runners have crossed the line. We recommend that you train for the cold but also have a finishing plan, of having loose fitting warm clothing, towel, hat and gloves to wear and easy to hand. For further details please ask.
