MUD Master - an exciting outing for the whole family.


Every year, the MUD Master Obstacle Run takes place here in the Lower Rhine region. It's an exciting obstacle course reminiscent of a real marine course. You have to slide, crawl, climb, or jump to overcome spectacular obstacles.

The Mud Masters Obstacle Run is not a competition; it's about reaching the finish line together, pushing your own limits to achieve an accomplishment you can be proud of for a lifetime. It's mega exhausting... But that's exactly what makes for a huge amount of fun and a sense of triumph that is celebrated profusely with a cold winner's beer in the large festival area after reaching the finish line.

I have always had great respect for this race, but at the same time it has always been my wish to face this challenge together with my daughter. Unfortunately, it never really worked out. Then, when I became ill with epilepsy, it became impossible. Especially in the early days, I was physically and mentally far away from it.

With the start of the ketogenic diet, my life has changed again greatly, but this time for the better. Today, I am once again able to face such challenges.

Susanne's opinion

And so it happened that my family gave me participation in the MUD Masters as a Mother's Day gift. At first, I was quite surprised and had some fear about whether my fitness would be sufficient for such an event. But I was already looking forward to it, especially because we would all participate together as a family. It promised to be a lot of fun.

During the preparation phase, we watched videos from the organizer, and that's when I realized what I had gotten myself into. The course was described as unique and promised an adrenaline rush. It was clear that it would be physically demanding, as I read through the course description. We would need a lot of energy. For this reason, the organizer had set up pavilions along the entire route where participants were provided with water and snacks.

I pondered for a long time on how to plan my nutrition for that day. In the end, I decided to simply bring two bottles of Kanso KetoEpi 2:1 with me. The entire run took place in the mud. Even if the bottle was completely covered in mud, the contents remained intact. The drink didn't burden my stomach and immediately replenished the expended energy. Looking back, this decision turned out to be very good.

The countdown for the preparation began! Despite our respect for the challenge, we couldn't wait. It was time for action. And then came the day X. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side. It rained all day, and it was bitterly cold. But it was an unforgettable challenge with spectacular obstacles and lots of mud. Participation in the MUD Masters is definitely at the top of our family's list of best adventures. It was a day full of mud, obstacles, physical exhaustion, but also a lot of fun as a family.

Participation will likely bring a smile to our faces for years and will always be a great topic at every birthday party.

Cooking tips with MCT fats

The most important information summarized briefly:

  • Half a teaspoon of MCT oil is approximately 1 g/ml.
  • One teaspoon of MCT oil is approximately 3 g/ml.
  • One tablespoon of MCT oil is approximately 6 g/ml.
  • MCT margarine is ideal for spreading on bread as well as for sautéing and baking.
  • MCT oil can be used for salad preparation and for gentle frying at low temperatures (approximately 150°C).
  • Do not keep MCT fats warm for too long, heat them too hot, or reheat them (in the microwave) as this could result in a bitter taste.
