We're bringing the First Annual Better Mud Run to Redwood, N.Y., at high noon Saturday, July 12, 2014.

Hosted by Better Farm and featuring more than 20 obstacles, the Better Mud Run invites the fiercest  athletes and thrill-seekers to the Better Farm campus for agility obstacles, wall-climbs, scaling mountains, and—of course—getting really, really muddy. Here's a preview of a few events planned for that day:
  • Warrior Carry
  • Pond Crawl
  • Mud Slide
  • Tire Toss
  • Hay Bale Jump
  • Trench Warfare
  • High Stepper

Everyone who signs up to participate in the Better Mud Run will get an event shirt. All who finish the course will get a headband. Funds raised will be allocated to sustainability and wellness outreach in the North Country; with a portion of proceeds donated to USO-Fort Drum to benefit service members and veterans. Following the course, visitors are encouraged to stay for some food and refreshments that will be available for sale next to the Art Barn, where we will have live music and entertainment to enjoy.

Stay tuned for more information on time and date, and for our entrance form. Want to come on board as a volunteer? Contact us at
