Review of Irvine Lake Mud Run by

Posted by: on May, 22 2013

Things got off to a rocky start for my team since half of our bibs never arrived after paying to have them mailed. The communication from the organizer was good but I ended up having to drive out to one of the packet pick up locations the day before to pick up the missing bibs, we had an early wave and did not want to risk long lines at the venue, a trip that took about 3 hours to complete on a friday afternoon. I was not offered a refund for the mailing or anything else as “we’re sorry”, I guess I didn’t complain enough.
The course was nice, nothing too difficult and very enjoyable except for the foam pit. It was our first experience with foam and we did not like it. I was unable to see for about 5mins after exiting because my eyes were burning so bad. Maybe next I’ll just close my eyes and run over anyone that might be lost inside. The slide was very fun and overall we had a great time. I would give a B+ if I could and an A if all our packets had arrived together.
