About the Race

The Great Muddy Escape will be held Saturday, October 24, 2015!

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?
