Mud Rushing in Pune…Wooohooooo

Honestly, there are so many festivals being held in India, that it’s difficult to say which one is worth your time and which is not. I’m sure there will be different reasons for people to like one festival over another as well. What set the Mud Rush apart from others, for me, is that it is held twice a year and in a different location, giving me an opportunity to have a blast and explore a new destination at the same time. Mud Rush, now an event that most people actually look forward to attending, was last held in February 2013, in Kolad, Maharashtra. Six months later, the venue was Fort Jadhavgadh in Pune, Maharashtra. Check out these pictures, taken at Fort Jadhavgadh, during the event.

It’s quite simple: Participants have to run along a muddy track and clear various levels of obstacles. You are considered and made to feel like a winner, provided you finish the run. The Pune edition, which took place on August 31, 2013, kept with the theme of the Fort and had people in traditional Maratha garb blow the trumpet and drums for those who finished the run and as they were presented with medals and a chilled can of beer. Awesome!

What followed was a day of relaxation under the sun and grooving to signature beats of various DJ’s, throughout the day. The actual party, of course, began only once the sun began to set… and had even the most tired Mud Rusher tapping his feet involuntarily…

PSSTTTT…: Aamby Valley has been declared as the Mud Rush venue for February 2014. Start preparing already…
