About the Race

The Great Muddy Escape will be held Saturday, October 26, 2013!

The best part of The Great Muddy Escape is getting dirty. If you have tried trail races, mud runs, tough guy fun runs, or a warrior dash, this “escape” is yours to conquer. Our obstacle course race is designed to test your resilience, strength, stamina, quick decision making skills, and ability to laugh in the face of adversity. Are you ready to make the Great Escape?

Proceeds From This Race Benefit The YMCA & HMH Auxiliary

Proceeds from The Great Muddy Escape directly benefit the HMH Auxiliary and the Huntsville Family YMCA.

The HMH Auxiliary was formed in 1956 to support Huntsville Memorial Hospital’s mission of caring. The Auxiliary’s mission is to provide volunteer services, hospital information, and emotional support in a caring, professional manner to patients, families, staff, other volunteers and the community. The Auxiliary will raise funds for special projects and equipment for the hospital.

As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the YMCA works side-by-side with their neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do their important work, the YMCA relies on support from members, donors, volunteers, community leaders, and events such as this.
