Description

May 30 & 31 on Barksdale Air Force Base's east side What is the Defenders of Liberty Mud Run? The Defenders of Liberty Mud Run at Barksdale AFB is 3.9 miles of extreme trail running through 18,000 acres of Louisiana's toughest terrain with 15 military style obstacles that will push participants to their mental & physical boundaries. Is this Mud Run safe? As with any outdoor obstacle running challenge, there are risks involved, but to ensure you make it safely to the finish line many precautions have been taken. Paramedics are scattered throughout the course in case of an emergency, as well as safety personnel at all obstacles to ensure that all participants are accounted for. Even with these precautions in place, all participants compete at their own risk. What do we get? All adult participants receive a Defenders of Liberty Mud Run 2014 Performance Event shirt, DoL Mud Run Military Dog Tags, Racing Bib & a drink voucher. All kid participants receive a Defenders of Liberty Mud Run 2014 Performance Event shirt & DoL Mud Run Military Dog Tags. Can we compete in teams? Absolutely! You can sign up & run as a team... in fact, it's encouraged to run as a team to help motivate each other. Wear your matching team shirts, bandanas, wrist bands, etc..to make it easier to find each other throughout the race! What should I wear? This is the participants own preference, but keep in mind that the Mud Run is on an outdoor trail with rough terrain, muddy swamps & obstacles. You are climbing ropes and trudging through mud, you will probably end up muddy & wet by the end. Also, headlamps are a MUST on the night race. What can I do with my muddy shoes? Leave them. We will have a designated spot for shoes to be dropped and will be donated to the Shreveport Bossier Rescue Mission. Will there be any awards? Of course! There will be an award for TOP male & female in the Competitive Wave. What happens if I don't complete an obstacle? For the Competitive Wave, time penalties are assesed for not completing obstacles. All other waves do not have time penalties for not completing obstacles. Do you have to be in great shape to compete? Definitely not! This event is for the out of shape to the most physically fit. The point is to have fun while exercising, challenging yourself & supporting the fighting men & women of Barksdale AFB. How do I get access to the base if I am not military? That's SIMPLE!! Just head west on I-20, exit 33 and follow the signs!! See, simple! No military ID is required, but a valid ID is required to pass through the gates. There will be personnel directing you where to go from here. **(BY PASSING THROUGH BASE GATE AND ENTERING ON BARKSDALE AFB - Each person is aware their person & property is subject to search & seizure while at Barksdale Air Force Base.
