Braveheart "FREEDOM" Mud Run is a 5k or 5 mile Mud Run with military type obstacles. There is also two seperate courses for the kids runs.
The 5k and 5 mile courses start on the Motocross track, they do a half lap with several obstacles along the way. Then it's off into the fields and woods following our Harescramble trails. There are both man mad obstacles and natural terrain obstacles. Rocks, hills, streams, pond crossings, foam and of course lots of mud. The kids have their own courses. For the 4-6 year olds, they will be running on our Pee Wee track with some small obstacles and mud. For the 7-13 year olds, they will be running on our intermediate track. For the 14 and up ages, it's the 5k or 5 mile course. A post party at Krebs Grove will include a wash off station, bon fire, live music, Free food and drinks for all runners and awards. Everyone is invited to the post party.
