Run Amuck

Run Amuck, the Marine Corps Marathon's messiest mud and obstacle event included nearly 3,000 runners facing arduous obstacles and plenty of mud courtesy of tropical storm Andrea, which dumped additional rain on the Quantico trails and hills where the 3.5 mile event was held. Run Amuck and the scaled down 1.5 mile version of the course, Mini Run Amuck, are part of the MCM Event Series, hosted March through November. Run Amuck participants, ages 8 and above, represented 31 states and the District of Columbia.

Rain showers only added to the fun and adventure for participants at Run Amuck and Mini Run Amuck as they ventured through numerous challenges including the spider web, monkey bars, over the A-frames, inside the wrecking balls and amid all of the mud  -- with U.S. Marines motivating them along the way.

Run Amuck participants enjoyed a mud bath through the mud trench, low crawl and large mud pit, which were just three of 21 challenges they faced during the event held today on Marine Corps Base Quantico.

Let's all RUN AMUCK -- on Marine Corps Base Quantico where families and friends hurdled over obstacles and took on Marine Corps-style challenges through the mud-soaked course.
