4th Annual Big Sur Mud Run
March 28, 2009
“Down and dirty” is the theme for this fun sport with a twist. It’s a five-mile event sponsored by the U.S. Army Garrison-Presidio of Monterey and California State University Monterey Bay. It’s said to be a challenging but fun course patterned after the Camp Pendleton mud run with hills, water, obstacles (including five-foot walls), drill sergeants barking orders on the way, and the requisite mud pits. It begins (at 9 a.m.) and ends at Freeman Stadium on the CSUMB campus. You can compete as an individual or put together a five-person team. I can’t imagine anything more fun than five friends competing in the mud. Finishers get a really neat T-shirt and medallion. Showers at the end of the race so remember to bring towels and a change of clothes. Go to www.bigsurmudrun.org for more information and to register.
