Mad Mountain Mud Run coming June 1

Spots for the Hunter Subaru Mad Mountain Mud Run, coming June 1 to Berkeley Park in Hendersonville, are filling up fast, and an all important deadline is nearing:  the free t-shirt cut-off date is May 1.
“Most participants who tackle a challenging race like this are in it first for the thrill of accomplishment, but a near second is for the t-shirt!” said Ellen Seagle, race administrator and avid adventure racer.  “There’s nothing like that feeling of pride when you don a race t-shirt that you earned through sweat and perseverance.”
Racers must register no later than 5 p.m. on May 1 to be guaranteed an event t-shirt, and can register and find more information at  Please note, there is a cap on the number of participants for this event, and registration could be full before May 1, as the event sold out by early May last year. 
The Mad Mountain Mud Run is an approximate 3-mile muddy team adventure race, the only event of its kind in western North Carolina.  The team event is challenging, and includes muddy obstacles that must be crawled under, climbed over and traversed through.  New this year are climbing walls (that can be bypassed with a time penalty), tractor tire flipping, swamp terrain and more.  Racers must be 12 or older to participate, and must choose a competitive category, as teams with similar abilities will race together.  All proceeds benefit Hands On! – A Child’s Gallery, a children’s museum located in downtown Hendersonville, N.C.
