Mississippi Mud Run Race Description

Join us on September 16, 2016, on St. Feriole Island for the seventh annual Mississippi Mud Run! Proceeds from this event will help fund the following programs:  PALS Mentoring Program, PDC Park & Rec Department, and the Crawford County Humane Officer Program.


Mississippi Mud Run Information:

The Mississippi Mud Run consists of approximately four miles of Mississippi River Valley terrain and various natural and man-made obstacles. Participants will be in and out of Mississippi River Mud, through at least one memorable backwater slough, over and under brush, trees, and logs, and through the floodplain trail. Man-made obstacles will include whatever we can dream up, but you can expect things built from logs, large and huge tires, rope, round bales, concrete culverts, flatbed trailer(s), and salvaged vehicles. This run offers a challenge to warrior folk and tough guys and gals looking to put themselves to the test or beat their friends to the finish. It’s also completely cool if you’re not so much with the competition and just want to have some fun at a more leisurely pace. Teams and costumes are encouraged!
