This is the second year in a row for me to run the Carolina Beast. I enjoyed this venue even more this year than last. It was a technical course, mostly because the abundance of mud. The placement of the obstacles was well planned and created a challenging course. Kudos to Garfield Griffiths, the Race Director, and his team, who faced horrendous weather conditions leading up to the event. They pulled off an excellent event. The last thing I would say is you need to run this venue to experience the epic orange mud that makes all the finishers look like Oompa Loompas! :) AROO!
