The total distance of the course is approximately 6-7 miles. Each partner will complete the entire course by running 3 miles (approx) and biking 3 miles (approx). One partner runs while the other bikes. You switch tasks at each obstacle/transition area. The person biking will reach the obstacle, drop the bike in the designated area, complete the obstacle and begin running. The runner will then arrive, complete the obstacle, find their bike, and begin biking. Most likely, they will pass their teammate running along the course. Obstacles will be designed to fit the landscape of each venue individually, but past events' obstacles have been a cargo net crawl, a low wall, cargo net climb, or a hay bale obstacle. At every race teams will have to conquer the famous Mud Pit before crossing the finish line together as MUDDY BUDDIES!
