2nd annual Red Dirt Mud Run set for Saturday


Saturday the Nacogdoches Jaycess are hosting the second annual Red Dirt Mud Run.

Last year the 5k mud obstacle course had 617 runners this weekend they are expecting 750 to 800.

The 5k includes 20 mud obstacles including vertical wall climbs, over and under logs balance beam walks and monkey bars.

Treasurer Tim Ward says the course took about four months to build. Proceeds collected from this dirty mud run will go to organizations that help children in the Nacogdoches community.

"Its really a great time people get out there they help each other its all about team work and completion it's a build each other up type run," said Ward.

The race starts Saturday at 8:00 a.m. runners can register the day of the event.

 Volunteers are also needed. If interested volunteers can show up on race-day and check at the registration table.
