Rain showers are forecasted all week in the Chattanooga Valley and officials at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga are welcoming mother nature as it will make their annual benefit, the Chattanooga Mud Run, muddier and more exhilarating for the 2,500 runners participating in Saturday’s event, officials said.
The muddy 5K race will include 20 obstacles ranging from a water slide and mud pit to the icy dumpster dive and slippery slope. Rain or shine the race will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the fun will continue after the race until 2 p.m. with Chattanooga’s muddiest outdoor concert, the Mud Run After Party. The concert will include live performances by Chattanooga ‘s very own rock bands, Soul Mechanic, Power Players, and Endelouz.
Team registration for the Chattanooga Mud Run is open through 5 p.m. Thursday and the cost to enter a team of five is $250. To register, visit www.chattanoogamudrun.com
Admission is free for spectators and families, friends, and co-workers are encouraged to attend to cheer on their favorite team and to enjoy a day of fun, food, music and mud.
