The third annual Bozemonster race is right around the corner and this year is no less muddy. In fact, organizers have brought back a popular, 16-feet-tall obstacle.
""This is the 3rd obstacle people hit and we call it the beast," Roby McDonough, the organizer, said. "So what we did was we hung ropes down and we put some rippers on so people could use those for feet hold to try to make it more friendly. It's a little scary at the top when you go over."
The beast is not the only obstacle runners have to think about- there will also be a giant slip and slide as well a giant mud pit competitors must run through.
Organizers recommend duct taping your shoes to keep them on your feet.
The race is Saturday, August 24th and begins with the Dino Dash for kids followed by the Junior Bozemonster at 10:45 a.m.
It's not too late to register. You can register online with the Bozeman Running Company (http://www.bozemanrunningcompany.com/_) until 7 p.m. on Friday or you can register at the event from 7 - 9 a.m. on the day of the race.
Everyone who finishes the race gets a beer provided they can provide identification proving they are 21 or older.
The race is a major fundraiser for Friends of Regional Park , a non-profit dedicated to the creation, improvement, and maintenance of Gallatin County Parks and Trails.
If you can't run, Organizers say volunteers are still needed. For more information visit http://bozemonster.com
