The Mud Mafia is a running team born in Omaha, Nebraska that has grown to an international group of fanatical athletes who love to run and race. We are from California to Conneticut, Vancouver and Germany and we run all kinds of events. We run Ironmen, half Ironmen, ultras, tri’s, marathons, half marathons, 10K’s, 5K’s. We climb mountains, race trails, canoe and kayak. We even snow shoe, a 100 miles at a time if the occasion calls for it. We travel, we train, we look for new challenges, and we love what we do and we love getting dirty.
We have three rules: Have fun, take care of each other, and run like hell.
We are always looking for new runners. There is no tryout, no application, no membership dues, and no required number of events to run or pace time to hit. You love to run and race? We want to run with you.
Our team is based on a few simple things:
1. We are a Family. We take care of each other. You may race as an individual in most cases, but we are a team at the end of the day.
2. You sign up and pay $20 – that buys you a shirt with a nickname. If you already have a nickname we’ll put it on the back, if you need one you can earn it. Every time you race for the family, you earn team mileage and you earn yourself a bullet hole to iron on your shirt. Take care of your shirt; it’s your calling card. Five bullet holes and you earn yourself a pistol.
The purpose of the MM is to bring together runners/athletes at all levels of fitness that makes running/competing fun and non-intimidating while naturally creating an environment where runners from different backgrounds and abilities become a support network, learn and train together and have FUN.
