The Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park is a challenging, military-style trail run that’s intended to pit participants against one of three extreme courses.

Each wave of participants joins a stampede of literally hundreds who’ll trudge through thick field grasses, over wooded underbrush, down and out of deep gullies, and ultimately face jaw-dropping obstacles — each designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie.

The Finger Lakes Mud Run courses are the 5K short course, which is designed for those who are looking for a fun challenge, but aren’t quite ready for the big time.

The second course is the 14K long course that explores more than 750 acres of dense forest, sun-baked fields, and terrain that even scares the wildlife.

The third course, introduced in 2013, is the ever-popular Mini Muddy. This course lets kids ages 6-12 get completely covered in mud, just like the rest of the family!

The Finger Lakes Mud Run remains a volunteer-organized event that uses 100 percent of its net proceeds to extend the mission of Everest Park by offering a restful retreat for families of children who are experiencing life-altering health issues.
