Organizers have been working hard preparing for Woodland’s third annual Mud Run, to be held Saturday at Woodland Christian High School, 1787 Matmor Road.
More than 450 runners are already signed up to participate and at least 600 people are expected.
“The Woodland Mud Run is not just a 5K run; it involves a muddy, slippery course that just dares you to stay on your feet, jump over hay stacks, crawl under obstacles and try to push your way past the competition as you race toward the finish line,” a news release said.
There are three levels of competition: an individual adult 5K Run, at 9 a.m.; the team 5K made up of five or more adults, at 9:30 a.m.; and a lids’ 1 mile fun run, at 10:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each event.
A raffle of items donated by True Value will take place at 10:15 a.m., and runners and fans will enjoy coffee, tea, energy drinks and a taco meal with chips and salsa, provided by several food vendors.
Registration costs $50 for adults and $25 for students under 18. For information and registration forms, visit www.woodlandmudrun.org.
Race proceeds will go toward providing classroom technology and athletic equipment for Woodland Christian School.
