Mudtastic! Mud run comes to WaynesvilleCanton Lions Club’s Building Bridges to run in September at WRC course
The Building Bridges Mud Run is Haywood County’s first mudtastic mud run.
Nestled in the mountains of beautiful Waynesville, this course has been designed to accommodate the advanced, moderate and beginning mud runner. The Canton Lions Club’s objective is to provide a challenging mudfilled obstacle course for all to enjoy.
The course is about 3.5 miles long and will involve traversing creeks, hills, multiple mud pits, various obstacles, and a slippery surprise for the finish.
The Building Bridges Mud Run will be providing proceeds to the Canton Lions Club and Lions Club International.
The mission of Canton Lions Club and Lions Club International is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs (lionsclubs.org).
Building Bridges Mud Run Schedule
The Building Bridges Mud Run is taking place Sept. 13, starting at the Waynesville Recreation Center. The nearly 3.5 miles course traverses picturesque creeks, provides numerous obstacles, lots and lots of mud and quite a few surprises.
As we approach Sept. 13, there will be much more information provided in regards to parking and arrival time. It is imperative each member of the team has signed the provided waiver. A mud run can be strenuous and tasking on the body, if you have any reservations in regards to your health, stay away! These hills will not be your friend, I promise. We will also be verifying your identification the day of the event. We will also be providing wrist bands for those runners over the age of 21.

Don’t forget your shoes, old pants, and as little cotton as possible. We cannot stress enough to bring a change of clothing, large towel and trash bag for the muddy clothing and ride home.
We will be providing more information concerning packet pick-up closer to our Sept. 13, 2014 event date. If there are any questions, email Ryan Jacobson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
