Odessa Prepares For Mud Run 9/25/13
September 25, 2013
Odessa - Dirt, mud and hurdles are just a few obstacles athletes will face during this intense mud run. “I say hill but it’s really a cliff side,” said Recreation Special Events Coordinator Chris Hallmark.
This race is something new and different for the Permian Basin, which is why Hallmark pushed to bring the Buffalo Battle 5K to Odessa. “We wanted to continue along that trend of doing something new doing something out of the box.”
CBS 7 accompanied Hallmark simply walking the course, and even then we were still having trouble. “This is extreme, this is what we’re talking about when we’re talking about buffalo battle. We’re talking about extreme obstacle course racing.”
Hallmark says, “Everybody should finish, you just have to be able to push yourself and set goals for yourself.”
