Mark your calendar, round up your friends and family, and register now to participate in the 1st Annual NC USMC MUD RUN on June 12, 2010 at Jomeokee Park in nearby Pinnacle, sponsored by The Marine Corps League, Percy John Fulton Detachment 1075 (Winston-Salem, NC).
This event raises funds for the Wounded Marine Program, the US Marines Youth Foundation Program, and Toys for Tots.
The course is a 5K through wooded areas, streams, and open fields with lots of hills, with obstacles and plenty of mud. The Marine Corps creed to never leave a Marine behind will be honored, with assistance and spirit offered to competitors as needed.
There will be both individual and team (groups of four, must be dressed alike --costumes encouraged -- and finish together with locked arms or holding hands) competitions, as well as a Pollywog event (mud pit race for children under 12).
Bib's Downtown, local awesome purveyor of deliciousness, will be offering food for sale.
This Marine Corps Mud Run is in memory of Nick Ortiz, a charter member of the Mud Run Team. Nick is now running with God's cadence.
