Here’s mud in your eye
Stomp through mud pits! Crawl on your hands and knees underneath obstacles! Haul your body up and over walls!
And that’s just a partial listing of what you’ll have to do when the Inaugural Mammoth Mud Run tests your endurance and strength in a series of obstacles, mud pits and more over a span of 5 kilometers in the highest Mud Run in California on Saturday, Aug. 27, at the Village at Mammoth/Canyon Lodge.
It’s fun. It’s dirty. It will leave you breathless. And it’s also the perfect warm up for the rest of the weekend at Mammoth Rocks in the Village!
