The Titlow Mud Run is a combination of mud, trail running, obstacles and adventure at Titlow Park.
This year’s run is set for March 23 and features a family-friendly 2-mile run that takes participants off the city streets and sidewalks and onto the park’s trails.
The event begins at noon and, depending on the weather and the amount of mud Mother Nature creates, will turn an afternoon of trail running into a dirty, dusty, sloppy good time. The course is designed for dirt-tromping, mud-loving children and adults as well as more fastidious participants who plan to puddle-jump and keep their feet dry.
Obstacles include fire jumping, belly crawling, wire leaping, log climbing and mud tromping. All the obstacles in the chip-timed race are optional.
The entry fee is $25 for those who pre-register and $35 for those who sign up the day of race. The fee includes a mud run towel and chip-timing.
Online registration is available at metroparkstacoma.org/races and closes at midnight March 20. Race day check-in begins at 11 a.m. at the picnic shelter near Titlow Lodge. The park is at 8425 Sixth Ave., Tacoma.
