COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - On September 25, 2010 the Greater Columbia Marine Foundation will host the largest Mud Run in North America. The event is now sold out, but volunteers are needed! The race expects to have 14,000 participants (3600 teams) from all over the Southeast and beyond. The Ultimate Challenge Mud Run is more than 4.2 miles, and has 30 obstacles that have to be crossed by each team. The challenge requires teamwork and a lot of determination.
The course is an all-terrain race conducted on dirt roads, improved and unimproved trails through the training area. These trails include mud holes, walls, trenches and other obstacles that require swimming, crawling, climbing and jumping. Some people come to compete, but many come just to complete!
