National Prep Race at Lehigh University

First Ever Mud Run in the Lehigh Valley at Lehigh’s Goodman Campus


BETHLHEM, PA (March 29, 2012)  The first ever Mud Run in the Lehigh Valley will be held on Saturday, April 28, at Lehigh University.  The “Steel Fitness” National Prep Race will be a 2 mile mud race through the famous cross country course on Lehigh’s Goodman Campus.  The course will feature a 6 foot high wall, 50 old tires (Tires of Destruction), a set of mud soaked tubes (Treacherous Tubes), a set of balance beams (Brutal Balance Beams) in which onlookers try to knock off runners with water balloons, and finally a giant mud slide just before the finish line.

If you are planning on Tough Mudder or Spartan Race, this is a great prep race for some of the tougher, more challenging mud races.  There is also a “Mini-Mudder” event for 3 to 12 year olds, and the atmosphere will be family friendly.

You can also run for a cause and use National Prep Race to raise funds for your favorite charity! You’ll be able to join a team and have friends and relatives donate to your cause. We will also be giving a portion of all proceeds to “The Race for Adam”.

Fun and prizes include:

  • Post-race party at Starters Riverport where all competitors will get 15% off their bill!
  • Every competitor will get 1 free week membership at Steel Fitness
  • Gift certificates will be awarded to select winners
  • T-shirts, video and pictures all available
