The Mad Mud Run will take place tomorrow! If you haven’t signed up yet, but want to participate in all the muddy fun, it’s not too late! Day-of registration will be available tomorrow morning, from 7:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. for the Mad Mud Run, and from 10 a.m. for the Mudpuppy Splash. The races start at 10 a.m. and around 11:30 a.m. and cost $60 and $15 per person, respectively.
For those interested in participating in the Mad Mud Run without the 4.5-mile run and 40-foot mud bath, you’re in luck! Mad Mud Run organizers need people to douse participants with water in the course’s Splash Zone, so Super Soakers are welcome! Come out to help cheer on your friends and neighbors, and stay to give them a good splash!
The 4.5 mile course will wind through the Providence community, beginning and ending at Knickerbocker Park, located at 10695 W. Dorrell Lane. Participants will travel an action-packed, marked course through multiple obstacles that culminates with a cool and messy mud pit. Obstacles encompass typical “boot camp” style activities with a low wall, belly crawl, balance beams, water wall, tire array, hay bales, and the 40-foot-long mud pit. Run solo, or create male, female and co-ed teams of two or five.
A mandatory pre-race meeting will be held at 9:45 a.m. the morning of the event, with the race beginning at 10 a.m. The minimum age is 12. For those under 18, special waivers are required. The 100-meter Mudpuppy Splash is open to the first 200 4 to 12-year-olds who register.
Entrants and other attendees are encouraged to donate to or bring new and gently used books for Spread the Word Nevada. The nonprofit organization promotes literacy to make it possible for all children in Nevada to experience the magic of books.
