Chattanooga Mud Run Set For This Saturday

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

The 5K muddy military-style race will include 18 obstacles ranging from a water slide and mud pit to an icy dumpster dive and slippery slope.

The concert will include live performances by Chattanooga ‘s very own blues and rock & roll band, Rick Rushing & the Blue Strangers.

Online registration for individuals and teams remains open, and participants will have an opportunity to register on the day of the race.
