We’re excited to welcome the Mad Mud Run back to Providence for a second year. Set for Saturday, April 21, the 4.5 mile course will wind through the Providence community, beginning and ending at Knickerbocker Park, located at 10695 W. Dorrell Lane.
Participants will travel an action-packed, marked course through multiple obstacles that culminates with a cool and messy mud pit. Obstacles encompass typical “boot camp” style activities with a low wall, belly crawl, balance beams, water wall, tire array, hay bales, and the 40-foot-long mud pit. Run solo, or create male, female and co-ed teams of two or five.
The cost is $50 per person until April 7 and $60 per person thereafter until 9:30 a.m. on race day when check-in closes. Online registration, at www.madmudrun.com, closes at midnight on April 17. The cost includes an event t-shirt, goody bag, dog tag and refreshments. A mandatory pre-race meeting will be held at 9:45 a.m. with the race beginning at 10 a.m. The minimum age is 12. For those under 18, special waivers are required.
The 100-meter Mudpuppy Splash is open to the first 200 4 to 12-year-olds who register. The $15 per child cost includes a t-shirt, race bib, dog tag and refreshments. Children, ages 4 to 6, must be accompanied by a parent through the mud pit. Registration will be available until 10 a.m. on race day with the event starting around 11:30 a.m.
Other activities at the park will include registration, entertainment, refreshments, booths, volleyball, soccer and other park games. Awards will be given to the fastest individuals and teams and for best costumes. Mad Mud Run organizers also need people to douse participants with water in the course’s Splash Zone so Super Soakers are welcome. Other volunteers are welcome too.
Entrants and other attendees are encouraged to donate to or bring new and gently used books for Spread the Word Nevada. The nonprofit organization promotes literacy to make it possible for all children in Nevada to experience the magic of books.
