PIG TRAIL MUD RUN – June 4, 2016
SOOOEEEEE! Calling all PIGS! Come wallow in the mud with other swine, sows and pork lovers at the Pig Trail Mud Run, built and directed by the Springdale Rotary Club. If you think getting wet and dirty sounds fun and you and your piggy pal team members love to be mentally and physically challenged, then the Pig Trail Mud Run is the race for you.
Come on – get a team together, get off the couch, encourage your team to train a little, and join the Pig Trail Mud Run for a day that you’ll only be able to describe as “A Muddy BLAST!” This race promises to be more fun than a barrel of pickled pigs’ feet.
And plan to stick around for more fun, to pig out on food and beer and enjoy some great entertainment at our PIG party. Or, if you don’t like that idea of getting off the couch to prepare for the race, come on out and join the party anyway.
This muddy mess is a fundraiser for the Springdale Rotary Club to help pay for the organization’s many local, national, and international projects. A portion of all registration and other fees is tax-deductible.
New This Year! Fun Piglet Corral for Kids!
Bring your piglets to this year’s race and let them wallow and play in the mud while you run. This year the Springdale Rotary Club is offering a Fun Piglet Corral for the little ones. Kids age 5 through 10 are invited to play in the mud, squirt each other with water, and a number of other fun, muddy activities while our volunteers keep watch over them.
They will get dirty! Be sure they are dressed for muddy play and you may want a change of clothes for them after clean-up.
We look forward to giving your piglets some muddy fun while you run. There will be a $5 charge per child to play in the Piglet Corral (collected day of race or at Packet Pick-up on Friday).
Check out section 11 of our FAQ for information regarding child care services for children under 5 years old.
The Pig Trail Mud Run is on an undeveloped, rustic portion of the Ecclesia College campus in Springdale, Arkansas. Located in the beautiful Arkansas Ozarks, the course features extreme hills, underbrush and lots of trees, a stream bed and ponds. And that’s before you factor in the ultra-challenging obstacles you’ll have to navigate to complete this 5K race. You may even see a wild boar!
Packet pick up will be Friday June 3, 2016 from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m. at Jose’s in Springdale.
Invite your friends, family and co-workers to come race with you or watch you run. We will have lots of great spectator viewing and it’s free to come watch and check out all the fun! Spectator maps will be available.
RACE DAY PARKING
Preferred parking is $10 per car for the day. Regular parking is $5. Limited preferred parking is close to Marchant Arena where the race will begin and end. Regular parking is down a hill from the arena – a bit of a walk to save $5. Parking passes may be purchased at time of registration, during packet pickup, or the day of the race.
RACE DAY BAG CHECK
No need to worry about where to stash your dry clothes or your camera while you are slogging through this muddy mess of a fundraiser. We will keep your stuff nice and dry in our bag check area.
There are a number of area hotels for lodging. Or, if you have a camper, tent, or RV, there are a limited number of hookups and tent camping space out near the race site with toilets nearby and limited access to showers. Spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. The camping area is on the Ecclesia College campus. Contact the college directly at (479) 248-7236 to sign up for a camping spot. (Note: The campus is alcohol-free. Join us at the off-campus after-party if you want to celebrate!)
