On Saturday, May 17th at 8am, local residents can witness friends, neighbors and family members crawling through muddy ravines, fording through a babbling stream, jumping and climbing over a multitude of obstacles, while straining to see through a flud of muduntil participants emerge triumphantly from the 3rd annual, Wren Hurricane Mud FLUD Run. Contestants will compete on the 3.1-mile course until the last team completes (or is carried off) the muddy obstacle-filled FLUD Run through Wigingtons Farm behind Wren High School.
The last 2 years, The Hurricane FLUD RUN has been a great success with over 110 teams each year. This year will be even greater. People have commented this is a hard course and want more, so this year we will give you more. We will have 2 courses in 1. The red course will be for the diehard mudder who wants to be the Kings and Queens of the course. This means you will share a lot of the tough obstacles as in the past, but some will be made harder for the red band group, such as 8ft and 6ft walls for the red group and 4ft for the intermediate groups. Penalties will be strictly enforced for the red teams this year. Old obstacles can change for red teams to make it harder. Intermediate teams will have the choice to run the red course if wanted to see what you have got. Also new obstacles will be added this year.
New Obstacles: plus the 28 from last year.
Tug Boat Pull
8 and 6 foot Walls
A few more in the planning stages also
Organized to raise money for the Wren High School Athletic Program, the event provides everyone the opportunity to play in the mud while supporting a worthy cause. Proceeds will be used to purchase and maintain sports equipment, assist with travel and team related expenses and will benefit all sports programs at Wren High School, both boys and girls.
Theres nothing quite as exhilarating as watching people you know and love battle for the title of Champion Mud Warrior, said Dan Cooper, one of the FLUD Run organizers. We want this to be a fun event that will challenge participants, while raising money to support athletic programs at Wren High School. You might still get yelled at and it very well could be your mom, but this time, its not childs play, it is for a great cause.
