Ready For A Mud Adventure? The Muck and Mire Mud Adventure Is Back!

ScottDWSmith WEB y2a5314


Get muddy and conquer the obstacles on this adventure race that is fun for the whole family.  This is one of Purgatory’s most popular events of the year. This mud run has more than 20 great obstacles, tons of mud, and the most amazing scenery of any mud run around!

The “Muddy Muck” 5k

If having fun and getting muddy with your friends is what you’re all about, sign yourself up for the challenge of the 5k course!  You will encounter mud pits, a giant slip n’ slide, more mud pits, hay bales, climbing walls, and more mud pits.  And did we mention mud?  Yeah, there’s lots of mud.


The “Mini Muck” 1-k Course

For the little mudders, we have a 1-k course with — you guessed it — plenty of mud!  Parents and grandparents are encouraged to join in the fun with the kiddos.


Course Obstacles
