Hugging friends and family after they crossed the finish line, the competitors at last weekend’s Gladiator Rock ‘N’ Run at Casa de Fruta in Hollister did not let a little mud get in the way of having a good time.
“It’s fun and a great team thing to do,” said Cindy Kelly, part of the 33-strong 2L2Q (Too Legit Too Quit) team from San Jose. “We work out together.”
Kelly joined hundreds of pumped-up participants in the sixth annual 5 kilometer obstacle course race.
Wearing work-out gear and big smiles, competitors had to overcome a variety of challenges, all while getting wet and dirty, thanks to a water spray truck circling the course. Participants climbed an eight-foot wall, crawled through a mud trough and carried logs and each other all in the pursuit of having a muddy good time.
