Grab a buddy and form your own Muck Squad for Reno River Festival's annual Run Amuck competition set for Sat. May 8, 2010. The race will start and finish in the middle of the festival, so you're sure to be seen by everyone and their mother (unless she's running amuck as well). You'll be going from Wingfield Park to Idlewild Park, where you'll get to low crawl through a 60' mud pit and continue on through other surprise obstacles throughout the 2.5-mile course. It's a two-person relay so you and your most foolish friend each get to take a lap. And before you hit the showers, we're giving away awards and prizes ranging from fastest competitor to best costume.
But be warned, you will be facing a swarm of astronauts, geishas, runaway brides, gorillas, pirates and unattractive men in dirty underwear taking over the streets of downtown Reno. Well, maybe the unattractive men have always been here, but the rest in definitally far from expected. Trust us, you don't want to miss the next race. They're pulling out all the stops with new surprises for this year and we hear the third time's a charm. You don't know what you're in for. you lucky muck.
Not interested in running???? Have no fear, we have great locations near the obstacle course and the world famous mud pit, to pitch your chair and dawn your mud protective gear (white cloths not suggested).
