CARROLLTON, Ky. - (February 7, 2012) - The Mudathlon® Series, a 3 mile off-road running event featuring lots of mud, over 40 fun and challenging obstacles and an outstanding post-race party, is coming to Northern Kentucky on Saturday, June 2, 2011. The race will be held at the scenic General Butler State Park 1608 Hwy 227 Carrollton, KY 41008.
Mudathlon promises three things: Mud, Obstacles and Beer - or, in other words, "A Mucking Good Time®."
"The Mudathlon Series is thrilled to be bringing its 'Mucking Good Time' to Northern Kentucky," said Jeff Graves, Big Mudder. "This new location is a great mid-way point for people from Cincinnati, Louisville, and Lexington in the muddy revolution that's sweeping the country."
Seeking as much natural and muddy terrain as possible, the course takes participants through numerous obstacles, including the Mud Slide, Cargo Net Climb, Heaping Hay Bales, 40ft Tunnel of Terror plus great water obstacles. The General Butler State Park terrain also lends itself to biking, hiking, canoeing, camping and golfing, just to name a few.
"Add in a costume contest, delicious grilled Johnsonville Brats, refreshing Miller Lite beer, and a killer band you have a can't-miss event," said Graves.
