Registration is now open for the 2017 Chamblee Fun Mud Run taking place Saturday, April 29, 2017, at 8 a.m. at Chamblee Middle School.
Celebrating its third year, the Chamblee Fun Mud Run 5K race features climbing and crawling obstacles, water features, mud pits, and fun for all ages. The Chamblee Fun Mud Run is co-hosted by Chamblee Middle School (CMS), the City of Chamblee and DeKalb County Fire & Rescue. Presenting Sponsor of the event, Ed Voyles Automotive Group, returns for the third consecutive year. All proceeds raised benefit the Chamblee Middle School Education Foundation (CMSEF).
The largest single fundraiser for Chamblee Middle School, the Chamblee Fun Mud Run has quickly grown for the past two years from 800 to 1,200 participants. This unique spin on your “everyday 5K” has become a community hallmark, not only drawing more runners, but additional volunteers, spectators and sponsors year after year.
“Building on the astounding success of the first two events, we are expecting 1,500 participants for the 2017 Mud Run, with a goal of raising more than $50,000. This will put us over the $100,000 mark of funds raised in just three years from the Chamblee Fun Mud Run,” said Kelly Morehouse, CMS Parent Volunteer and Race Di-rector of the event. Race organizers are well on their way to reaching that target, with a total of $65,500 raised in the 2015 and 2016 Fun Mud Runs alone.
The Chamblee Fun Mud Run is open to the community and is recommended for children ages 8 and up, as well as older children, teens and adults of all abilities. The 5K course winds through the Keswick Village and Sexton Woods neighborhoods as participants complete multiple obstacles that involve simple challenges. The 5K is a timed event. Participants receive a mud and waterproof ankle tag in their race bags.
A 3K (approx. 2 mile) Muddy Buddy race immediately follows the Chamblee Fun Mud Run is recommended for children ages 5-7 who are accompanied by an adult. Participants can opt to complete the obstacles and run a shorter course. The Muddy Buddy is not a timed event.
