Saturday September 3rd 2016 turned out to be a perfect day for a Mud Run. I woke up early with a list of things to accomplish. Worrying about the weather was not one of them.
Live Fit Connecticut wants to thank everyone for coming out and supporting our first event. Going through the pictures made it all worth it to see everyone smiling and having a good time even though it was a challenging course! We have received a ton of positive feedback and some great suggestions for things we can do to improve for next time.
Whether you are new to Mud Runs and OCR or it’s a regular thing for you the New England Spahtens are a resource you should look into. They are a New England based OCR group. We had some Spahtens come out Saturday and give some reviews. You can read the reviews here.
We want to thank Mount Southington for being so helpful throughout the entire process. They are a great local mountain and an awesome venue!
Additional thanks to our sponsors:
And a special thanks to First Mile Fitness for setting up online registration, course layout, packet pick up, and overall organization.
We want to thank our charity partner Endurance For Veterans for the work they are doing with our veterans, a much needed service and they are from right here in CT.
Thank you to the uniformed soldiers who came out and added some meaning to the event. These men and women are real and work tirelessly for us everyday. I am glad that we can remember them even at play!

A huge thank you to our volunteers. We received so many compliments on how well they did. They filled in the cracks to smooth out the event and looked great doing it. The event wouldn't have been complete without our DJ Mike Castillo from Team Cares and food from award winning trucks Spud Stud and Whey Station
The Journal Record came out to take pictures and do a write up you can read here.
Thank you all so much for being part of the Live Fit Connecticut community!
