The 4th Annual Mississippi Mud Run will consist of approximately four miles of Mississippi River Valley terrain and various natural and man made obstacles. Participants will be in and out of river bank mud, at least one memorable backwater slough, over down trees and through floodplain trail. Man made obstacles will include whatever we can dream up, but you can expect things built from logs, large and huge tires, rope, round bales, concrete culverts, flatbed trailer(s), wrecked vehicles, and possibly a really big dumpster. ;) This run offers a challenge to warrior folk and tough guys and gals looking to put themselves to the test or beat their friends to the finish. Its also completely cool if youre not so much with the competition and just want to have some fun at a more leisurely pace. Groups and costumes are encouraged!
A kids run on a ~1 mile section of the course will be held immediately before the start of the main run. The short course run is open to kids 11 and under. Parents may accompany their kids on the short course run.
Registration starts at 7 a.m. the kids run starts at 8:45 a.m. and the main run starts as soon as the kids run is complete right around 9:15 a.m.
The cost to register will be $45 until September 2nd, then the price will go up to $55 after 11:59 p.m. To guarantee shirt size on the day of the event, registrations must be made by September 2nd.
Depending on the number of registered mud runners, we may stagger the start times for the long course. Watch for updates on the event website and Facebook as race day approaches!
