SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN MUD RUN
AUGUST 15, 2015
The Shawnee Mountain Mud Run is a 5k mountain trail run with natural and man-made obstacles, challenging ups and downs, rocky, wooded and wet terrain, shallow water crossings, ice bath, new mystery obstacle and lots of mountain mud.
Don't forget about the kids... The Shawnee Mountain Mud Run also has a Mini Kidz Run for kids 6-12 years of old with lots of mountain mud. We can't let the grown ups have all the fun.
The Shawnee Mountain Mud Run is a timed event, with emphasis on fun, teamwork and helping eachother to the finish. Costumes and fun team names are encouraged. A post race BBQ, live music, raffles and awards will be held in the base area.
Families and spectators welcome. Additional food vendors are available for non-runners.
The Shawnee Mountain Mud Run is a rain or shine event. Rain would make it muddier and more fun! Medals will be awarded to top 3 teams in all team options.
