Scenic City Mud Run Partners With OCRaddix

Monday, May 13, 2019
Scenic City Multisport announced they are partnering with OCRAddix for the 2019 Scenic City Mud Run that will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7, at Greenway Farms in Hixson starting at 7:30 a.m.
 
This year’s event will support Lionhearts of Chattanooga, a local non-profit with a mission to "empower youth to face fears and conquer obstacles, build self-worth and become stronger physically."
 
“The 2019 Mud Run has some exciting changes coming,” said Julie Wolff, co-founder of OCRAddix. “We are adding a youth race and an adaptive athlete heat for youth with special needs, a coached heat for adult runners that may need  guidance on the obstacles or have never ran an obstacle race, in addition to an enhanced atmosphere of fun in the festival area.
OCRaddix is excited to be a part of this year's race.”
 
Ms. Wolff and Jason Phy founded OCRaddix to create a team for OCR racers at all levels of fitness, from all walks of life. Ms. Wolff and Mr. Phy have participated in the Scenic City Mud Run in previous years.

“The enhanced course layout and design of obstacles promises to add some new challenges to this year's race,” said Mr. Phy.  “We are adding an element of new terrain and unseen obstacles to the Scenic City Mud Run to bring participants a fun and attainable course -- but also challenging. The new finish line will provide for an exciting and epic photo opportunity. We look forward to seeing you "slide into the finish line."
 
Participants can expect an on-site after-party, music, massages and lots of mud.  For more information visit Scenic City Mud Run.  Participants can register here.
