According to event organizer, Brad Frost, Shasta Library Foundation Board Member and owner of Fitness Express, ”
This race will challenge your body and your tolerance for getting down right dirty. This year’s race will include a one mile extension that will challenge even the best runners. Bring your buddies and family to watch as you experience a great muddy mess.”
