Sunriver to host mud run for fun

The Sunriver Mudslinger Mud Run — a 1½-mile course consisting of obstacles, and multiple mud pits that participants will run, crawl and jump through — will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 24.

The event is open to individuals, families and teams. Creative costumes are encouraged and spectators are welcome.

The mud run starts and finishes in a meadow near the Sunriver Marina and HOLA! restaurant. The event will not be timed in order to keep the focus on fun.

Registration costs $20 for ages 12 and older, and $12 for children ages 4 to 11 through March 23. Racers can register online through March 23 at www.sun rivermudslinger.com. Race-day registration fees are $25 for adults and $17 for children.

Contestants are encouraged to bring multiple layers of old clothes they do not mind getting dirty and an extra set of clothes to change into after the event.

The Sunriver Mudslinger is presented by the Sunriver Owners Association Recreation Department, which is recruiting volunteers to help on race day.

To volunteer, contact Emily Savko at 541-585-3145 or email emilys@srowners.org.
