The Soulful Experience Featured Business: BigDogBrag – The Colorado Mud Run
Every June in Colorado, thousands of people put on their game face and grubbiest shoes and head to Big Dog Brag – The Colorado Mud Run. Why on earth would groups of businesses, school teams, weekend warriors and families pay to do a 5k run where tons of mud and crazy obstacles push even top-trained athletes to the limit?
Because everybody needs FUN in their lives.
Married couple Misty Banta and Ron Weide left the corporate and ministry worlds to start Big Dog Brag back in 2011. They knew that Colorado Springs was missing the unique mud run experiences offered in big cities and used their expertise and backgrounds to create what is known as one of the top mud runs in the United States. Big Dog Brag offers 25 obstacles over the 5k course, has the most mud of any course, and a famous 70 foot mud slide – the longest mud slide in Colorado. Their attention to every muddy detail has earned Big Dog Brag numerous awards, including “Best of Events” in Colorado Springs and a 5-star rating on Mud Run Guide for eight years in a row.
I’ve known Ron and Misty for years and have admired how they put 100% into every detail of their mud run. They think strategically and are laser-focused on planning, customer service, safety and delivering a soulful experience to every single participant of the mud run. Misty and Ron personally meet with their corporate sponsors in advance to ensure that they are represented in an area of the course that connects the participants with the business, and they conduct quality control tests on all obstacles to make sure they are safe for all ages and levels of expertise.
The 2020 Big Dog Brag will take place on Saturday, June 6 at RAM Off-Road Park, 12800 CO-94 in Colorado Springs. Registration is now open. Parents: sign-up soon for one of the limited FREE spots for kids.
Congratulations to Misty, Ron and the entire Big Dog Brag team for consistently delivering The Soulful Experience!
