Mud Run Inspires Near Your Del Mar Home
The 3rd Annual Del Mar Mud Run is coming up on Saturday, October 6th, and will be the squishiest, dirtiest race challenge yet! Held near your Del Mar home, at the Del Mar Race Track and Fairgrounds, located at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, this event boasts amazing obstacles and super mud pits, as well as a well-attended after party. Costumes, over the ankle shoes (to avoid mud suction issues), and craziness are encouraged at this yearly event and all participants over 21 can receive free beer along with their participation t-shirt. Top finishers excel at running, jumping, climbing, wading, and balancing skills and will earn “over-sized” medals, as well. A post race change of clothes and towels is also suggested for all race participants, as the course is extremely messy.
If you live in Del Mar and are looking to see some unique entertainment, mark your calendar to attend this year’s mud run! The race benefits the Challenged Athletes Foundation and includes a 5K race with over 17 obstacles. Registration is open to residents 13 years of age and older and costs $75 per individual or $285 for a four person team. Races begin at 8 a.m., although all but the 1 p.m. slot are currently sold out. To register or find out more, please click here.
