BEFORE THERE WERE "MUD RUNS" THERE WAS THE HUMDINGER!

This isn't a poser route.  It's a real trail run that deals with the stuff the world put in our way.  We didn't build stuff for you to climb on.  We took what was there, and made it part of our run.  Racers have called the race "authentic" and we take that as the ultimate compliment.
We won't tell you everything here, because we like to surprise or runners with a few things on race day.
RACE AMENITIES

WHAT THIS RACE IS NOT

We call the Humdinger and its offspring ‘trail runs’. These are not well-maintained cross-country style courses. Neither are they extreme obstacle type courses. You’re not in for a run in the park here, nor are we going to try to make you cry like a little girl. We want you to get outside in central PA in early March, shake off the cabin fever and have fun running around with 600 or so like-minded friends. We’ll challenge you and make you sweat, but we’re not going to put anything out there that the average person can’t do. Every difficult obstacle on the course has a work-around for those who are not up to the challenge.  You will get muddy, you’ll likely get a boo-boo or two and you might even be sore the next day, but hey – that’s half the point of it!
