This event is a 5k mud run with 19+ obstacles set in the beautiful, rugged terrain of the Mt. Gretna area. Participants can expect to encounter mud, water, fire, rocks, earth, and climbs that excite the mud runner in us all! There are Competitive, and Non-Competitive Options, as well as Team Options for all events.
All proceeds for this event excluding the costs of participation will go directly toward Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's "Pathway to the Future" Initiative. We seek to cast off our burden of debt so that camp can continue free of financial struggle, transforming lives for many years to come. Our goal this year is to have at least 600 runners and raise more than $50,000! With your help, we can make this come true.
We will also host a 5k Walk-A-Thon the same day, and the "Nitty Gritty" kids fun run which gets kids (5-11 years old) in on the action with a 1 mile fun run. All Nitty Gritty participants get a Gretna Gritty t-shirt, lunch, and smiles for the whole ride home. All Gritty runners and Walk-A-Thon-ers can expect lunch, medals, special promotions, a sweet Gretna Gritty t-shirt, and memories to last a lifetime!
