Our objectives are clear (unlike mud): create a fun and challenging event to draw mud-loving runners of all abilities to our area. We have a range of competitive levels in our race, so you choose if you are "in it to win it" or happy to laugh & crawl your way through our approximately 3 mile obstacle course. Our course will take you through trails and trees, up hills (and down too), in water, and over many obstacles. And yes, there will be mud!
Best of all, 100% of the proceeds from this awesome event go to the non-profit children’s museum: Hands On! Children's Museum. Hands On! provides unique and creative educational exhibits and activities for children and is located on Main Street in Hendersonville, N.C.
Prizes will be given out to the fastest individual and the fastest teams (male, female & co-ed) along with team costume contests and team name. And, since Hands On! is the place where learning comes into play, we will have some challenging brain games along the course. An individual or team can may win a prize for correctly answering these challenges.
Family members, friends and other people not interested in competing in the race challenge are invited to the site for the day to cheer on their muddy loved ones and enjoy a festival atmosphere with food, beverages, live music, and some fun challenges of their own
