Your First Mud Run
Families are invited to ‘step outdoors,’ have fun and get muddy as SteelStacks hosts ‘Your First Mud Run’ at Step Outdoors Lehigh Valley June 3, starting at 10 a.m. Entry fee is $47.50 through May 3, $50 starting May 4 and $60 day of the event; discounts are given for groups of three or more. Registrations can be done at www.yourfirstmudrun.com; both individuals and teams can enter.
At Your First Mud Run, participants navigate a fun and challenging two-mile course on the Levitt Pavilion Lawn and PNC Plaza that features as many as 10 obstacles including a 6-foot-high wall, 50 old tires, a set of tubes, heavy jump ropes, mud pit, cargo net and a secret obstacle. The event is ideal for families, with children as young as age 5 able to take part. It’s also a great test run for first-timers training for tougher, more challenging mud races like a Spartan, Tough Mudder or Warrior Dash. During the Mud Run, children get to run the same course side by side with their parents and all runners get a finisher’s medal and t-shirt.
A portion of all proceeds from Your First Mud Run will be donated to ArtsQuest. In addition, participants can also create a “Team Page” and use it to raise funds for any charity, school or team.
