Muddy participants wanted – no experience necessary

The Parkview Muddy Trail Run still has space to get down and dirty beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 6. The event will be hosted at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation, 2282W 500S in Steuben County (10 minutes off I-69, exit 340), rain or shine.

In teams or as individual participants, runners of all ages will have fun in a mud pit and on a rope swing. They’ll also run in the muddy river and climb the sand dunes. It’s not a speed or hard-core challenge event – the Muddy Trail Run is designed to be a fun obstacle course. Heats will begin at 9 a.m. and continue every half-hour until noon. Friends and family are invited to bring food, chairs, or blankets to watch the muddy fun and capture the day in pictures and video.

Registration fees are $45 per person through August 23, and $50 per person through September 6. Entrants must be at least 12 years of age. Entrants who register before August 23 will receive a free T-shirt and tote bag. Every participant gets a sausage and pancake breakfast, too.

The Parkview Muddy Trail Run is a partnership of Junior Achievement and Anthony Wayne Area Council Boy Scouts of America. Proceeds will benefit both local organizations, and registrants can direct their support.
