This event is a 5k mud run with 15 obstacles set in the beautiful
rugged terrain of Gretna Glen. Participants can expect to encounter
mud, water, fire, rocks, earth, and climbs that excite the mud runner in
Our 5k Walk-A-Thon is at 10:00 in between the competitive and non
competitive heats - where walkers can walk beside the Gritty and check
out the fun. NEW this year, is a kids run - "the Nitty Gritty" which
gets kids (5-11 years old) in on the action with a 1 mile fun run and
leaves them with a sweet headband to celebrate their accomplishment.
All runners, and walkers can expect lunch or breakfast (depending on
your time of run), a t-shirt, and memories to last a lifetime.
Our Goal: Have an AMAZING event with the BEST course around & Raise $75,000
for Gretna Glen's "Pathways to the Future" finance initiative. All
proceeds for this event, excluding the costs of participation, will go
directly toward Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's "Pathway to the
Future" Initiative. We seek to cast off our burden of debt so that camp
can continue free of financial struggle, transforming lives for many
years to come. Our goal this year is to have at least 600 runners and
raise more than $75,000! With your help, we can make this come true.
