Are You Ready For The Mud?
Take Up The Challenge!
18th Annual Marine 5k Mud Run
Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Greenhill Park, Salem (Roanoke County), Virginia
If you have yet to take the Marine Mud Run Challenge, you're missing out on the cleanest fun you'll ever have with a 5K race! As you will see from the pictures on our web site, it's a pretty muddy affair. Many folks ask, just how tough is the course? We reply, it's as hard or easy as you want it to be! We have semi-pro runners down to the neighbor next door that has never entered a 5k race. Individual and 5 Person Team races and the Pollywog Jog, a shorter version for children 12 yrs. and under.
One thing is for sure if you run this race the Marines will see to it that you finish it. Part of the Marines creed is to never leave another Marine behind. And for this event we will never leave a runner behind!
