Come run, jog, or crawl the Muddy Trail Run on Saturday, September 12th. This great event is presented by Parkview Health and is created for those who think differently about running. The Muddy Trail Run isn't your average 5K! The fun includes a mud pit, river run, and a sand dune climb, all along the 5K course. The point is not to finish first but to finish with style.
