Greenville gets on the marks for run

February 25, 2013 by  

The race is on as the Texas Mud Run takes place in Greenville in late April.

The event is held to raise money for the Texas Parks and Wildlife. Funding from the Mud Run will help to support parks and wildlife areas in the vicinity for many years.

It is reported the Texas Parks and Wildlife is in need of over $4.5m to alleviate the serious conditions caused by record heat and drought along with many devastating wildfires. Some of the critical issues facing the area are providing resources to assist the endangered species, fisheries and other wildlife programs.

The 5K mud run will take participants on routes through hills, creeks, and the ever popular muddy areas of Greenville. It is a true test of agility, and ability to jump, climb, and play in the mud.

Upon registration, each runner will receive a special Texas Mud Run T-shirt, a Medal of Honor upon completion of the race, water stops, chip timing, free beer for the adults, and the chance to participate in a costume contest. Costume voting will take place on Facebook. Of course, the best feature of participating is meeting the challenge.

After the race, the festivities will begin in full swing. Live music, face painting, and family fun will be front and center for all to enjoy.

Printing companies typically provide print services such as banner printing for events of this type. Banners are placed along the race route to ensure runners are directed appropriately throughout the course.

With the race to be held on April 27, registration forms and more event information are now available on the Texas Mud Run website
