Runners Ready for Raucous Run Amuck Mud Run on June 14
The favorite kick off to summer time adventure, Run Amuck, the mud and obstacle run offering plenty of messy fun for ages eight and above, returns to Marine Corps Base Quantico on Saturday, June 14. There are limited spots to register for the event that presents 21 arduous challenges, military-style PT stations and enormous pits of ooey-gooey mud. Participants will journey through Run Amuck's four-mile quest in separate waves from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Runners will want to take dad on this messy escapade through "mudder nature" as Run Amuck is held the day prior to Father's Day - a gift more unique than the traditional tie.
