Please be sure to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your heat to allow time to park, sign waivers, and make your way to the starting line. Heat times run from 9:00 am through noon – with more being added if needed.
TESTIMONIAL: The 4H Mud run was awesome! Whether you’re a hardcore athlete with to something to prove or a person just trying to have fun with friends and family, this race was a blast. On this course was massive sand hill that had my calves and quads burning, muddy water, big hay barrels, and many more. The hardest part was at the very end. I had to climb a huge wall then swing from ropes like Tarzan, walk across raised logs, do monkey bar that where on an incline then a decline and then climb a huge warped wall and slide into a muddy pit. It was tough but I kept pushing because I knew my family and friends were hot on my trail. This race is good for a single racer or a team of people that help and motivate each other through. I had so much fun doing the race, the very next day I signed up for following race a year ahead of time.
