The event is a 3-plus mile race filled with muddy obstacles. This year participants can choose their challenge. Options include Timed Individual – Recommended for competitive runners who want to see if they can be the fastest individual through the course! You will take off by yourself and be timed.  Team of 4 – All team members need to register individually. Teams must have all 4 members registered to compete. All participants must be 12 & over. Teams are timed and will start and finish together. Untimed Individuals – You will take off with a group of individuals, and it is your choice if you want to stay with friends or run alone! This is a great way for a group of friends to run together and register individually. This is not recommended for competitive runners and you will not be timed. All participants who register by May 15 will receive one free t-shirt and one free beer (age 21+) at the end of the race.
