The Mud Run ~ Little Rock

Here’s the Down & Dirty . . . Created for those who think a little differently about this runnin’ stuff. The Mud Run is definitely NOT your average 5K. The Mud Run is for the adventuresome spirit and is a family friendly race. Participants run, walk, skip, trot and even cavort through our 5K(ish – please refer to helpful hints section of the website for the clarification of “ish”) course, which winds through a scenic Little Rock Park. Participants must overcome an “obstacle” or two along the way. Then finish with a spectacular frolic (but in most cases romp) through our world-renowned 300-foot mud pit, which is filled with that amazing Arkansas mud! The point is not to finish fast but to finish with style.
