Greenway Farms Transforms Into Chattanooga Mud Run Beginning Tuesday

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Work will begin at Greenway Farms on Tuesday in preparation for the largest and muddiest race in the Greater Chattanooga Area – the 5th Annual Chattanooga Mud Run.   

The 5K-muddy military style obstacle race will be held on Saturday, Aug. 16, at 8:30 a.m. at Greenway Farms and approximately 3,000 participants and nearly 1,000 spectators are planning to attend.

More than 20 volunteers will be onsite daily between 10 a.m.–4 p.m. beginning Tuesday through Friday to construct the 18 man-made obstacles and to transform Greenway Farms into the race site. All obstacles will be completed and installed on Friday at 6 p.m. including the climb walls, underground tunnels and the notorious 5,000 square foot Mud Pit. 

There is still time to register for Chattanooga Mud Run. The cost to enter is $250 for a team of five and $60 for individuals. Anyone 14 years and older can participate. Proceeds raised from the Chattanooga Mud Run benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area. To obtain addition information or to register, visit www.chattanoogamudrun.com.
