Fun-run fundraiser at Sussex Central definitely a track for mudders

GEORGETOWN – Hello mudders!

The Golden Knight Mud Run is April 28 at Sussex Central High School.

Fun in the mud is the name of the game for Sussex Central High School’s inaugural Golden Knight Mud Run, set for Saturday, April 28.

The fundraising run will be staged on the SCHS campus, starting at 1 p.m.

Proceeds will benefit Sussex Central High School’s track program.

The Golden Knight Mud Run is the school’s version of the popular adventure runs being held throughout the country.

The run is an un-timed noncompetitive 5K race in which participants are challenged with obstacles and tons of mud.

Organizers say this is an ideal race to sign up with friends or in groups, come up with team names, wear the same clothes, and post pictures of everyone having fun in the mud.

All pre-registered participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt to wear as they run or walk through a 3.1-mile course full of mud.  There will be a modified 1-mile course for the young mud runners.

“The Mud Run is going to be awesome; getting covered in mud with all of my friends sounds like a great time,” said Sussex Central sophomore Maille Ryan.

Individuals, groups and teams are invited to take part as mudders in the April 28 fun-run fundraiser at Sussex Central High School.

“It is fun to stay active with my friends and family.  The mud and obstacles motivate you to keep running,” said SCHS senior Albert Norman. “It will be a great time this year.”
