From now through May 1, you can sign up for the Better Mud Run July 12 for only $30.

Registration includes entrance to the 20-plus relays at Better Farm, a T-shirt, finish-line headband and cup of beer, entrance to the exclusive after-party with a refreshments, food tent, and live entertainment, and the knowledge that your registration fee funds sustainability and wellness outreach in the North Country. A portion of all proceeds will additionally be donated to a division of nearby Fort Drum to benefit active-duty or veteran soldiers.

Here's the rundown.

The first annual Better Mud Run is slated for 12 p.m. Saturday, July 12, 2014 at Better Farm. Course designers have already started plotting obstacles and relays that will get your heart pumping, your muscles burning, and your body very, very muddy. This event is NOT for the weak, the tired, or the timid!
Please be aware that all attendees—including participants and viewers—will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival at Better Farm.

The Better Mud Run promises more than 20 obstacles spread out over five miles that require participants to run, jump, climb, crawl, and pull their way through the course. This event 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
 After May 1, registration fees climb as follows:
  • Now through May 1: $30
  • May 1-June 15: $35
  • June 15-July 12: $40
