Better Mud Run Signups Now Available!

Sign-ups are now open for the First Annual Better Mud Run July 12 in Redwood, N.Y.!

The Better Mud Run will be held at 12 p.m. Saturday, July 12, at Better Farm. Money raised at the event will fund sustainability and wellness outreach in the North Country, with a portion of proceeds donated to USO-Fort Drum to benefit service members and veterans.

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 obstacles 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 and free drink! 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.

Better Farm is located at 31060 Cottage Hill Road, Redwood. If you would like to sign on as a volunteer to construct the course or help out day-of, please contact us at
