Course description:

The Start and Finish is in the middle of Cole Park, where the aroma from BBQ cooking all night will be entice you to finish quickly.  The course features a whopping 33 obstacles.  A big difference with this mud run and others is many are natural.  Much of the mud you will accumulate comes from swampy areas along the Rio Grande - talk about organic!  Speaking of real, how about encounters with real live pigs and alligators!
