Mud Run

Mud runs and similar events have multiplied around the U.S. in the last decade. Inspired by the Tough Mudder, a grueling 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces, the events vary in challenge levels and themes, including Tough Mudder races, in West Virginia in October; the still-challenging four-mile Running Dirty with Navy Seal inspired obstacles, held in Frederick in August, to a little less challenging events full of mud, spray paint and sometimes even zombies.

Some events also raise money for charities. LoziLu events donate a portion of registration fees to LIFE, a non-profit charity supporting children with leukemia and lymphoma through research and financial assistance.
