2019 EVENT UPDATE
We would like to thank you for your support and helping make this event possible each year. After much consideration our organization has elected to not host the McMurtry Mud Run as we move forward.
As stewards of the park, we have a responsibility to facilitate activities that have a low environmental impact. Our nonprofit’s mission is to "enhance, promote, and operate the Natural Resource and Recreation Area in a sustainable manner." The event was created with good intentions. However, it is our determination that the process of preparing , hosting, and maintaining the course impacts our trails in a manner that is not consistent with our mission.
As we progress towards sustainability, we are placing more emphasis on environmental stewardship through new avenues such as our summer camp program. We believe the park is a perfect platform for educating our youth about the importance of preserving our natural resources.
Our decision was not easy but ultimately, we feel it's in the best interest of the park for future generations. We know this event has been enjoyed by many kids and families throughout the years and we hope you will continue your support.
