Mud Creek Crawl

Join TriToFinish at the 39th Annual Mud Creek Crawl!  Originally presented by the Tri-City Nordic Ski Club, led by Don Kane, continued under the direction of John McPeak and presented by Midland County Parks and Recreation Department, the MUD CREEK CRAWL has become a nationally recognized off-road race (Runners'S World's choice as one of the nation's Top 13 Out-Of-The-Way Races) and this year you can be a part of it!

For those new to this event, top finishers are determined through the use of a handicap system of scoring: each entrant will have his/her actual finish time adjusted by a body type/composition factor and an age/gender factor. This handicapping allows each runner an essentially equal chance to win in his/her chosen race.  This is a trail run race and not an "adventure race" - though the trail CAN be muddy and there ARE some short, steep hills along the route.

As always, you can expect our signature TriToFinish race experience, even lost in the woods! You’ll get personalized finishes, custom finisher medals, music, professional timing and FREE finisher photos. As in past years, we will be capping this race at 300 registrants so act fast to avoid missing out on one of Michigan’s premier trail races!

Course:

The trail surface is natural turf, sand, or (hopefully) mud, depending upon the pre-race weather.  10k runners will complete a different course than the 5k runners/walkers so be sure to consult the map button further down the guide.  Please understand that the course may be slightly different from what you see on the map, but that the course will be VERY WELL marked – even better than last year.  There will be two aid stations available along the course.  If you need more nutrition or fluids than that, please plan ahead and carry your own.
