A Fun, Muddy, Slippery Obstacle Course for All Ages Walk, Trot, or Run ... Just Do the Hustle!
Come to Smith River Fest and join the day long festival of activity. From the paddle race to the mud run athletes will be challenged. Held at the Smith River Sports Complex in Axton, Virginia, there is something for everyone -- including a river float and bikes for individuals of all ages, as well as a climbing wall and bounce house, food, crafts, demonstrations, and music.
The Helgramite Hustle Mud Run will accommodate both competitive runners and individuals, families and teams looking for fun. Awards will be given for the top three overall male and female participants, and to the top male and female in five year age groups beginning with 14 and under and ending with 70 and over.
Your entry fee includes race swag, on course aid stations, finisher's medals for all, post race food and drink, and free admission to Smith River Fest. The craft beer garden will be open from noon to 4:45.
The cost to join the Helgramite Hustle fun is $35 until June 20, $40 from June 30 to July 25, and $45 from July 26 to race day. You may register on-line beginning January 1, 2014 -- just click the "Register On Line" orange button on the home page of this website.
Come on out and join the fun -- 10 mud pits to get through and over 18 obstacles including a water slide! Walk, trot, or run ... just do the hustle!
Who Can Run the Helgramite Hustle?
5K course has natural and man-made obstacles (with many thanks to Sandy River Equestrian Center!). Runners will traverse
through mud pits, across open fields, and run through the stream and
woods. Along the way obstacles and slide will make it a not so ordinary
run. This is a great family fun event, guaranteed to provide plenty of
mud and smiles. Participants of all ages are encouraged to run. Spectators will be able to see runners splash through
mud and the creek as runners make their way to the finish line where they will receive a personal shower by the Axton Volunteer Fire Department.
