More Mud, More Fun

Returning for its fourth year, this fiendishly filthy 5k will test competitors with more than 20 mucky obstacles and some of the muddiest, most rugged terrain in the White Mountains. Along the way, racers will drag snowmaking hoses through the mud, crawl beneath barbed wire, and test themselves in new and exciting ways.

The designers of this year’s race have spent considerable time crafting new challenges and tweaking favorite obstacles from past races. Along the 5k course, competitors will negotiate obstacles with names like Snowmaking Boot Camp, Sadistic Slalom, Plunge of Paul Bunyan, and Bear Claw Forest. This year’s race will also feature a free Mini Monsters race for kids, with pint-sized obstacles for children under 14.

Following the race, competitors will enjoy a relaxing summer afternoon with live music, lawn games, and barbecue. An awards ceremony will also follow the race, with prizes going to top individuals and teams.
