9/16: Muddy ACCE Race

Giles County presents The Muddy ACCE Race on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Glen Lyn Town Park.

Muddy ACCE Race is a 5K, 25+ obstacle course mud run including floating bridges, buried tunnels, rope swings, and mud pits, designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. It’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line, but if you can get it done. A challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.

Participants will run in heats through the course to test themselves and each other. Participants can run individually or as a team.
