Mud Season 2024 Certificate

Post by xehupatl » March 26th, 2024, 5:24 pm

Hey guys, I just completed the Advanced Mud Season Challenge 2024 by rowing 10k on 25 days in March.
My certificate just says "... for completing the 2024 Mud Season Madness Challenge"

Is there actually a different text for people who did 5k versus 10k, or don't they differentiate between the two anymore. Which is kinda sad because I thought my certificate would somehow indicate that I completed the advanced version.

Not sure about this years certiface as I've just completed 21 days of the required 25. But i've have both 5k and 10k certificates from 2021. Only difference was in the text "you have completed at least 5000/10000 meters on 25 days or more".

Is there not such a text in this year's certificate?

My certificate (for 5km) doesn't specify the distance. Not sure what the 10km certificate says.

The certificate for 5k has also been revised to specify 5k.

Somebody was not happy and gave concept2 feedback, I guess.

Managed to complete Mud Season Madness (10k version) on a last day of the challenge. Downloaded the certificate then and it did not have anything to separate between 5k and 10k versions of the challenge. Now after seen updates in this thread i re-downloaded the cert and it now has the TEXT.

I have been rowing regularly since 2012 and this challenge (advanced version) was not completed until 2021, even though I have already rowed almost 40 000 000 meters between 2012 and now. Since 2021 I have successfully completed the challenge every year. Previously the problem was that I took 2 full days of rest from training every week. Three years ago I moved to 6 training days a week (and have rowed over 5000 km/yr since then, I am at ⁓4960 km for concept2 rowing season so far. Hopefully can get to over 5200 km despite the neck issue, see below) . Since then I have had no major problems with the challenge. Except this year, because I've been suffering for a good three weeks with Cervical Radiculopathy | "Pinched" Nerve in Neck, which has made rowing very challenging.

I have yet to complete at least the current April Fools' Challenge , which requires to row a certain number of kilometers each day (starting with 1 kilometer on April 1, ending with 15 kilometers on April 15). I think this one of the newest challenges? Hopefully can attack that one next year with no serious health issues.

April Fools is rough. I don't think I'll do it, but I'm not eliminated yet. I'm trying to train for 10km running, and while a bit of cross-training never hurts, I don't know about 6 10k rows in a row April 10-15.
