Mudbug Run this weekend at Hagan Stone Park

2013 MudBug Run (Teaser) from Ray Publishing Interactive

A 5K course through Hagan Stone Park will take you through 16 of the best obstacles you’ve seen. There will be fire, ice, mud, water, walls, hay bales, dumpsters, crawling, crying, yelling and more.

This year we’ve found a new play toy: SCAFFOLDING.

You’ll get a great looking T-Shirt, a finishers medal, a beer and a kickin’ sense of accomplishment. It’s the best race around and it’s here for the taking.

What do I get?

1.  Free Beer ***
2.  The Official 2013 MudBug Run T-Shirt
3.  The 2013 MudBug Run Finisher Medal

4.  Access to After Party

5.  A Good Time

6.  Probably One Less Shoe

*** One beer is included for each participant who is of legal age to consume alcohol.  Root beer available for those under 21 and/or adults.​

Is it safe?​

Nothing worth doing in life is absolutely safe, but we take every precaution possible to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time. There will be EMT’s on site in case of an emergency. In the end, just like life, you race at your own risk.

THERE WILL BE SOME SCUFFED KNEES, ELBOWS AND A LITTLE INSANITY. YOU’LL STILL BE SMILING, THOUGH.
