Description

A cross-country style 5K course with natural and man-made obstacles. Runners will traverse through 10 mud pits, across open fields and run through the stream and woods. Along the way, there will be over 18 obstacles including horse jumps, cargo nets, and a stream to make it a not so ordinary run. This is a great family fun event, guaranteed to provide plenty of mud and smiles. Spectators will be able to see runners splash through mud as they make their way to the finish line.

What is a Helgramite?
Native to the Smith River, the Helgramite is the aquatic larvae of the dobsonfly. The large aquatic larvae, called hellgrammites are frequently used by fishermen as bait. They feed on aquatic insects for three years and then emerge to pupate on land. Once full grown, the nocturnal flying insect can be as long as 5 inches and the male has sharp mandibles half as long as his body. Sound fierce enough? Make it to the end of the hustle and you too, might earn your jaws!
