Giles County presents the 4th Annual Muddy ACCE Race on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Glen Lyn Park.

The Muddy ACCE Race is a 5K, 50 obstacle course mud run, designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. It’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line, but if you can get it done. A challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are. The Muddy ACCE Race is for participants ages 13 and up.

The obstacles include the Warped Wall, Tarzan’s Trapeze, the Human Ladder, New River Shuffle, and the rope swing! New this year, participants can also look forward to the Copperhead Climb, Feel the Burn and Shock Treatment!

Participants can sign up to complete the event as individuals or teams. There are also competitive time slots where runners compete for medals and all the glory! Later time slots are perfect for those running for the challenge or fun of it.

For the kids, 12 and under, we have the Youth Mud Pit and play area open from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. There are no time slots needed. Children must be under the supervision of an adult.

Every registered participant will receive an event t-shirt to prove you attempted the challenge, along with a water bottle and commemorative sticker. Spectators are welcomed to enjoy the village of vendors, food and entertainment.

Competitive heats are available at 8:30 am and 9:30 am with open course slots available every hour starting at 11:00 am until 2:00 pm. Sign up as an individual or team (4 or more members)
