Our Goal:
Bring this AMAZING event into year three with the BEST course around & Raise $50,000 for Gretna Glen’s “Pathways to the Future” finance initiative.
About
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!

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!

Chip Timing Disclaimer
This year, the only professionally timed heats will be the competitive heats. In an effort to save you money, we encourage any non-competitive runners to time themselves (our race director Dan says his watch has made it through two Gritty courses). If you don’t want to compete, but you want to be professionally timed, just sign up for the competitive heats anyway. It is REALLY OKAY to just wait at the back of the pack during the competitive run.
Fundraising
Over the last two years, the Gritty has been able to raise more than $67,000! That itself is a huge achievement but we’re not done yet. All proceeds for this event, excluding the costs of participation, will go directly toward Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's "Pathways to the Future" finance 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.

Volunteers
We need more than 100 volunteers to make everything work. The Gritty doesn’t happen, and is a lot less fun without our impressive volunteer crew. You can sign up to help at: https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/Lebanon/GretnaGritty.
