Tough Mud Run is Saturday in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Hundreds of runners will get down and dirty at this year's Tough Rhino Mud Run. 

The race is an intense 5K where athletes run, climb, jump and crawl through several obstacles. There's also a smaller course for young kids. The race is sponsored by Northwest Endurance Sports and will be timed. 

The top three male and female finishers will win prizes.

"This year there's 12 obstacles on the course and way more mud than last year. So, runners can expect to get dirty and be challenged," said race organizer Brandon Lotts.

Online registration is closed but you can still sign up at the event. It's Saturday morning from 8 to noon at Horn Rapids Park north of Richland. The money raised will go toward conserving the shorelines along the Tapteal Greenway. To register, click here.
