There's not a white T-shirt in sight at Mud Blast's finish line, though you might see a pink tutu. Messy terrain dominates the forests, fields, and river lands that line the race's five kilometers and the path to victory winds through tunnels, tires, hay-bale climbs, and other obstacles. Pits might lurk around any turn, threatening to cover runners in liquified dirt from head to toe to that marsupial pouch they didn't know they had. Mud blankets everyone who crosses the finish line: adults, teens, and even kids, who race through their own Mini Mud Blast course. Post-race celebrations add to the messy fun with awards for top finishers and best costumes.
The Mud Run's blend of competition and celebration occurs along the banks of both the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. These locations aren't arbitrary; proceeds from each run go towards the conservation of these river lands, thanks to the efforts of the Mud Blast's parent company, River Partners. The organization owns Willow Bend and is actively working to restore its more than 160 acres to riparian habitat as well as Dos Rios Ranch and its 1,600 acres of woodlands, flood plains, and working agricultural fields.
