Race Preview: 2016 Mud Madness Obstacle 5K or 1.7K


Test your strength and challenge your limits at the 4th annual Mud Madness Obstacle 5K or 1.7K.  Designed for all ages, this event offers more than just mud!  Check out a 100 ft. water slide, crawl, wall climb, tire crossing, and tire flipping. If that isn't enough, follow up all that fun with a cold water spray down before another set of obstacles (including but not limited to) monkey bars, rope swings and mazes.   You can rinse and repeat or head for the finish to join in on the after party with music, beer, wine, and soda.  Parking is plentiful, but bring a lawn chair, as seating is limited at the after party.  

There are a few options to choose from, the first being the Pro event which will be a full 5K of obstacles and mud and competition.  This is a timed event and waves are released with approximately 20 participants.  Registration is $35 before August 25th.

The next option is the Fun Run Main event which will be a distance of 1.7K of obstacles and mud.  Participants will be released in waves of 15  and a timing clock is available at the start and finish for self timing.  Registration is $25 before Aug. 25th.

Last, you can choose to register for the Challenger Run.  This free-for-all style will have everyone released on the course all at once on the very wet, very muddy, already been broken-in grounds.  Make sure your shoes are on tight, as the mud is sure to suck someone’s shoe off.  Kids under the age of 14 who complete the course will receive a medal to commemorate the achievement.  Registration for this event is $30 before Aug. 25th.
