Hampton Roads to Host The Great American Mud Run

Past News Releases


The Great American Mud Run, America’s muddiest 5K obstacle course race, is happy to announce its inaugural event will take place on Saturday November 3, 2012 at Greenbrier Farms Nursery in Chesapeake, VA.

Mud runs have become immensely popular over the past three years. Warrior Dash, Spartan Race, and Tough Mudder are the largest of these events, but have yet to host an event in Hampton Roads. “We believe that people who live in Hampton Roads should have access to a world-class mud running experience, without having to drive two hours to participate in one,” said John Brown, race director of The Great American Mud Run. “We’re a very active community, and it’s time for Hampton Roads to become a national mud run destination.”

Participants will run an off-road 3.2 mile course, and will conquer 13 obstacles along the way. “It’s an event where participants can push themselves mentally and physically while having a great time,” said Brown. Obstacles include “The Sugar Cookie,” “The Great American Mud Pit,” and “Geronimo,” which is a rope swing suspended over a large mud pit.
