The race started out with a short run on pavement to the over-under-through section. From there the course went to a dirt bike track. Since it was raining at the time, the track was a muddy sloppy mess and it was very difficult to keep your footing. After running around the track for a bit we came to the jerry can carry. The cans were filled with water and weighed 40-50 pounds each. We had to carry the cans around more of the track including up some very slick, muddy hills. These small hills caused trouble for many racers, especially those without good footwear. Upon completing the jerry can loop we had to climb a very large A-frame ladder wall where the rungs were quite far apart. The obstacle was made harder by the fact that it was covered in rain and mud.
The NJ venue was the well known Englishtown Raceway Park – home of the past three Worlds Toughest Mudders. This meant it was super easy to find on the GPS and there tons of local signage to find your way to the parking lot once you got there. They had plenty of parking ($10 per car) that was a short walk to the main entrance of the festival.
