What You'll Get
Like their pastry cousins, mud pies are circular, semigelatinous, and make a disappointing alternative to birthday cakes. Amplify your smudgy smarts with today's Groupon: for $35, you get admission and more to the Boondock Battle 5K mud run (a $70 value) on Saturday, April 30 in Navasota, which is northwest of Houston.
The Boondock Battle is a 5K mud run and obstacle course through the Texan wilderness, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Impact a Hero and the Layla Grace Foundation. Test your fitness wits in this grueling and clothes-terrifying muddy obstacle course, complete with muddy river battles, incline walls and gigantic hay bales.
Participants scramble to the top of The General, a gargantuan mud slide that will delight seasoned sweat-vets and neophyte joggers alike, before toppling to the bottom and ending in a pool of mud suitable for military-grade spa treatments. Today's deal gets visitors admission to the race and a gift bag filled with goodies. During down time, participants can enjoy mud dodgeball, music, and spirited rounds of duck, duck, mud-covered goose.
A portion of the proceeds from the Boondock Battle will be used to benefit two very worthwhile charities, with $10 from every entry fee sent to Impact a Hero, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to supporting wounded veterans and their families, both financially and emotionally. Over the course of the day, 10% of beverage sales will be donated to the Layla Grace Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds research for high-risk childhood cancers. This messy event is held at the Triple E Ranch, featuring ample parking for runners and plenty of amenities for participants and spectators including showers, food, and enough grubby entertainment to make Mr. Clean throw in the towel.
