Got mud? There was plenty of it at the first-ever Faith Community Church Mud Run on Saturday, Aug. 24.
You started out crossing the beautiful Mokelumne River and enjoying a path along the river until you came to a series of tires to cross to get back to the other side. With a variety of obstacles along the way — tire flipping, army crawling, wall climbing, pulling yourself out of a ditch, balance beaming, climbing hay bales and back around again for the 5K race — it was a great family adventure that everyone enjoyed, even a 12- and 14-year-old.
Faith Community Church deserves a huge round of applause for putting on a great community event. Not only was there an affordable race, but craft and food booths along with a field of jumpy houses and water slides. Thanks for a great day. I hope that you continue to carry on this event. Not only was it challenging, but fun for all! Well done!
