2nd Annual Mud Run

May 9 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

In Cold Mud 5K presented by Beech Mountain Parks & Rec Department will be held May 9, 2019 on Beech Mountain’s Wild Iris Trail. Get Muddy on Mudder’s day weekend – I mean Mother’s Day Weekend!
The course is on Wild Iris Trail Loop, which is an easy woodland trail that we have modified with obstacles. There is a elevation change of around 150ft, which on Beech Mtn. we call this course FLAT. The loop has rocks, roots and a bunch of MUD! There will be 1 aid station at mile 2.
Parking for this event will be at Beech Mountain Club Golf Course
112 Clubhouse Road, Beech Mtn. NC 28604. There will be a shuttle for racers and spectators.
We will present you with your own chunk of mud! Participants in the timed categories will receive 1st 2nd and 3rd place in customized mugs. We have a local artist creating one of a kind mugs for you to remember your experience on Beech!
What to Bring
We will have a bag check available for clean clothes. We recommend bringing a towel, change of clothes (including shoes and socks). Plan on being covered in mud from head to toe. We will have a rinse off and changing stations.
