About R3 OPS, Northeast Pennsylvania's Elite Mud Run

What does R3 Ops stand for?

The “R3” represents the Refined, Rugged, or Rogue. Refined is for all the lovely ladies. Rugged is for all the manly men. Rogue is for the crazy mudders. “Ops” is short for options, which this mud run is the first of its kind to have! The two crossed arrows is a Native American symbol representing friendship. What would life be without awesome friends?

Our Mud Run

The R3 OPS is a 3-mile mud run/obstacle course designed for manly men and lovely ladies who are wanting to get out, have a great time with friends, become motivated, get muddy, AND to challenge themselves. All while supporting local causes. The course has the casual athlete in mind but has added-on challenges for the athletically inclined. Parts of the course will require determination and, of course, a belly crawl or two! From hay bales, tires, tunnels, hill climbs, rope repels and pulls, to running through a creek and on the pipeline… you never know what you are going to run into! Also be prepared to test your balance! And can anybody say waterslide???????

Teams are encouraged!! Gather your friends, co-workers, family members, mom and dad, even crazy Uncle Bill together and plan for an event that you will have an amazing experience at!!  And don’t forget that costume! Maybe we should have a prize for the hottest looking Native American Indian dressed mudder??

All fitness levels are encouraged!!

Instead of an extremely difficult, military-style course (or one that zaps you’re “already welted” back with high voltage shocks while semi-drowning in six feet of ice water and quicksand) that other mud runs offer, the R3 OPS will present a little less challenging yet amazingly fun experience for people of all fitness levels. There will be 13+ crazy fun obstacles total and they will be roughly every 1/4 mile or maybe shorter. In addition to the 3-mile obstacle/mud run, there will be also be an optional “Extreme Challenge Area” for those who want THE challenge, or are just a wee bit crazy like the Rogue.

The first “8am Extreme Rogue Wave” heat begins at… 8 a.m. This is the only timed heat available!! All “Rogue” participants will only have one hour to complete the course. Prizes for top male and top female will be awarded around 12 at the pavilion in the entertainment area. All others waves begin at 9 a.m. with heats happening every 30 minutes up to 5 p.m.
