What are you doing on April 26?
If you are within a few hours of the Lehigh Valley (or looking for a reason to come for a visit), join us at our second annual 5K Family Fun Mud Run.
The fun starts at 11 a.m. on our beautiful 250-acre Orchard Hills Campus in Orefield, Pa. Mud runs are becoming increasingly popular, driving even self-avowed non-runners to compete in the mud. But ours has the distinction of being family friendly. Grab your friends, bring your kids, form a team or run or walk alone – it’s impossible to truly feel alone when you’re on a 3.1-mile course with hundreds of other people.
The scenic, hilly course traverses 10 obstacles, including a pit crawl, cargo net climb, tunnel crawl, slip 'n slide and a mud pit. Participants younger than 13 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult the whole time. Youth younger than 18 can also choose to do the 1-mile run/walk in lieu of the 5K. Have young kids who want to participate in the fun too? There is a free 100-yard dash for children ages 4 to 6.
See registration fees and sign up through active.com. We’re offering free registration for our 100th registrant. Not sure you want to get dirty? Sign up to volunteer or just donate to help our kids.
