What a great turn out we had in 2013! Thank you to all the participants, spectators, and volunteers who made the event such a big success. Please stop back in the coming months for details about the 2014 Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park.


Saturday, September 27, 2014

The Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park is a challenging, military-style trail run that’s intended to pit participants against one of THREE EXTREME COURSES. Yes, THREE! Each wave of participants joins a stampede of literally hundreds who’ll trudge through thick field grasses, over wooded underbrush, down and out of deep gullies, and ultimately face jaw-dropping obstacles––each designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie.

The Finger Lakes Mud Run has THREE courses in 2014! Our first is the 5K short course, which is designed for those who are looking for a fun challenge, but aren’t quite ready for the big time! Our second course is the 14K long course that explores over 750 acres of dense forest, sun-baked fields, and terrain that even scares the wildlife! Our third course, introduced in 2013, is the ever-popular Mini Muddy. This course lets kids ages 6-12 get completely covered in mud, just like the rest of the family!

New for 2014!

If a 5K is too short, but a 14K is too long, we have the solution: LOOPS! Two, one-mile-long loops have been added to allow participants on both the long and short courses to extend their runs by a mile or two. As the name suggests, these “loop” courses branch off of the existing course, but they start and finish at the same point.

The Finger Lakes Mud Run remains a volunteer-organized event that uses 100% of its net proceeds to extend the mission of Everest Park by offering a restful retreat for families of children who are experiencing life-altering health issues.
