After each mud run or obstacle race I compete in, you'll get my review and grades for each event to help you decide which ones you might want to sign up for. The following categories will be discussed:

1. COURSE- the design, venue, and setup of the race itself- how creative/ adventurous/ difficult the obstacles were, and obviously... how was the MUD?!?

2. FESTIVAL- all the fun beyond the actual race- the social atmosphere which usually includes food, beer garden, dj/ music/ concert, contests, vendors, and more during the after-party

3. SWAG- the included goodie bag and prizes up for grabs- all the "free" stuff that comes with price of entry and the quality of awards, shirts, and other giveaways

Feel free to use the search box to read up on any past topics you might be looking for.


Who is the man that brings you all this wealth of muddy information?

He is none other than Kevin "Mudman" LaPlatney, a native of Long Island NY.  He started The Mudman Report in the spring/summer of 2011, his second year of running OCRs, due to this growing mud run "hobby" that so many friends began asking about, and seeing this as an easy way to help it expand and let people know about all the fun he was having.  The website has grown at the same pace as the sport, and it now has its own Facebook and Instagram pages.

Kevin has been a competitive obstacle racer since 2010, now with over 170 races under his belt so far and looking to continue racing 20+ events per year.  With many top-3 and overall wins in his career, he is entertaining sponsorship and endorsement offers to assist with his racing and travel. Kevin is also th owner and head coach of Obstacle Athletics, Long Island NY's only OCR and ninja warrior facility.
