The Hillbilly Porkchop Roundup 5K Mudrun
A gorge filled with foam, a mountain made of tires, and a system of endless mud rivers—it’s not the nightmare of a man hoping to pogo stick across America, but a 5K obstacle course. Participants in The Hillbilly Porkchop Roundup start the day by picking up their swag bag stocked with a racing bib, t-shirt, and chip timer before lining up for an individual or team race. They'll then wind their way through 16 muddy obstacles where the object is to not only garner the best time, but to rescue the largest number of plastic pigs scattered throughout the course. After swinging through the hillbilly high bars and navigating the teetering tire bridge, runners dive into the muddy pig crawl before inadvertently hosing off in streams of a super soaker water canon.
Visitors waiting for their own circuit, or toweling off after a run can check on the kid’s in the 1-mile race, critique the eats at the State BBQ Championship, or fix their hair in the reflective chrome of a car show.
