270 CrossFit Mud Madness Run for the Responders

Whether you are a thrill seeker or couch potato looking for fun way to spend your weekend, the upcoming 270 CrossFit Mud Madness Run for the Responders is for you!

Mud Madness combines the beauty of Mike Miller Park with the challenge of a 5K and the fun of mud, water and various obstacles in between.

You don’t have to be an all-star athlete to compete, but you do have to have a sense of humor and be willing to get out and have a lot of fun.

Mud Madness takes off on August 24 at 7:00 a.m. with registration. The first waves will roll at 9:00 a.m.

Participants will be able to experience all the fun and challenge of the Great Wall, mud pits, Slide for your Life, Rope Dangle, Sand Crawler and many more.

Each participant will also get a “Get Your Mud On” Run for the Responders T-shirt, free refreshments and entertainment.

But best of all, funds raised from this event will be used to honor the county’s Emergency Responders at this year’s annual Emergency Responder’s Dinner, being held in conjunction with Family Week, August 6 at the Kentucky Dam Village Convention Center.

At this annual event, local members of Law Enforcement, Firefighters, EMS, Dispatchers and others are honored for their efforts in helping to keep our community safe throughout the year. So, let’s honor our everyday heroes and Get your Mud On for the Responders!!
