Do you like getting dirty? Of course you do, who doesn’t. Then good news the 2nd annual Myrtle Beach Mud Run and Mini-Mud Run is on Saturday May 12th. This is the final event of the Myrtle Beach Race Series and your last chance to be crowned the overall series champion. The race begins and ends at the Grande Dunes Marina just off Hwy 17 Bypass. It covers 3 ¾ miles of off road terrain along the Intercoastal Waterway and consists of obstacles, water hazards and plenty of mud. The Mud Run began last year and attracted over 600 runners. With the growing popularity of this type of military style race this year’s Mud Run is expected to have a massive turn out.
You can compete individually or as part of a 2 or 4 person group. If you’re competing as a group remember that all teammates have to cross the finish line in order to get your points. And for kids 9 to 13 there is a Mini-Mud Run consisting of some of the same muddy obstacles at about half the distance (1.5 miles). There is also a 100 yard mud dash for the little ones 8 and under.
To commemorate the run all participants will receive a Mud Run t-shirt and medal. In addition the first place finishers in all of the individual and group categories will get a trophy. The Mini-Mud Run starts promptly at 7:00 AM followed by the full Mud Run at 7:30 AM. The registration deadline is Thursday May 10th and race packets can be picked up on Friday May 11th. Entry fees are $45 in advance and $50 on race day for individuals, for groups of 4 it is $160 in advance and $180 on race day and for groups of 2 it is $85 in advance and $95 on race day.
The best part of the Mud Run is that proceeds go to the Grand Strand Humane Society. You know that great non-profit organization, the one committed to the care and protection of all homeless and abandoned animals. Last year’s race brought in over $7000 for the Humane Society and there should be no problem exceeding that amount this year.
So if your looking for a challenge, need some exercise or just enjoy being covered in mud then the 2nd annual Myrtle Beach Mud Run is for you.
