Event Details

 What is the Mighty Mud Run & Festival?

The Mighty Mud Run & Festival, formerly the Mad Mountain Mud Run, is a 3-Mile Muddy Obstacle Course Race at Hendersonville's Berkeley Mills Park. Since its inception in 2012, over 8,000 people have participated in western North Carolina's most anticipated obstacle course race! Our course will take you through trails and trees, up hills (and down too), in water, and over many obstacles. And yes, there will be mud!  We have a range of competitive levels in our race, so you choose if you are "in it to win it" or happy to laugh & crawl your way through our approximately 3-mile obstacle course. The Mighty Mud Run & Festival will take place on Saturday, May 30th, 2020. 

All proceeds from this event directly benefit Hands On! Children's Museum, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves over 40,000 children annually throughout the western North Carolina community.
