1. A buddy.
Fun runs are always more fun with a friend! They will also help keep you motivated to tackle obstacles and finish the race.
2. The right outfit.
While some races require certain gear or encourage wacky costumes , the general rule is to wear tight armor. Loose-fitting items can get caught on obstacles or weighed down by mud. Receiver gloves, like the kind football players wear, will give you added grip for climbing obstacles. On your feet, wear moisture-wicking socks and lightweight trail-running shoes.
3. Smart extras.
Bring a backpack stuffed with towels, a change of clothes, your phone, and cash.
