Titan MOB

August 23, 2014 - All Day at Living History Farms
11121 Hickman Road

Titan MOB (Mud, Obstacle, Beer) is a 5 to 7 mile mud obstacle course race being held on August 23rd at the Living History Farms.  We created this event for people who like a challenge, don’t mind getting a little dirty, and love to have a good time.  Featuring 20+ obstacles, Titan MOB will have you doing everything but running a straight line.  Plus, other challenges are available.

The money we receive from the sponsors will go to three local charities we are happy to be supporting:  Amanda the Panda, Alzheimer’s Association Greater Iowa Chapter, and the Children’s Cancer Connection.  In addition to the sponsorship money, we will also donate a portion of each participant’s race fee to Amanda the Panda.  Participants may also fundraise for any of these three charities.

For more information, please visit Titan MOB’s website at www.titan-mob.com.
