$45 for One Entry to the Mudathlon (Up to $100 Value)
The Mudathlon - Northern Kentucky will be held at General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton on Saturday, June 2, starting at 8 a.m. Registration includes a finishing medal, beer mug, event T-shirt, and one beer for of-age participants at the post-race cookout.
Mud oozes through fingers, toes, and other places mud should never ooze through during Mudathlon, a challenge that puts 3 miles and more than 40 obstacles between racers and the finish line. With multiple stops across the country, Mudathlon transforms its destinations into messy, muck-riddled swamplands, where participants ascend walls, zip down slides, and always end up in the same place—back in the mud. Course marshals stationed along each route keep feet moving in the right direction, and at the finish line, the top three male and female competitors receive Top Mudder awards for finishing fastest while ingesting the government’s daily recommended serving of mud. After the race, individuals and teams gather to celebrate at a country-themed party, which continues the festivities with live music, costume contests, and an abundance of food and beer.
