Virtual 'Mud-Less Run' planned in Apache Junction

Runs must be completed by Oct. 31

The Apache Junction Parks and Recreation Department has created a Virtual “Mud-Less” Run where participants can run, walk or crawl the distance they choose.

“Do it in a park, in your neighborhood, on a treadmill — it’s up to you. Map out your own course, create obstacles and even decorate your own finish line,” according to a release.

“The challenge consists of bodyweight exercises, two carries — make something with a bag if you don’t have weights — and running. There are reps and distances for each level as well. No gym equipment required,” it states. “After each quarter-mile run, have a family member spray you with a hose or squirt gun or throw water balloons at you while you do the exercises — it’s on you to stay dry.”

For a more authentic “mud run” experience, choose a trail, state park or other area with more challenging terrain, the release states.

"COVID-19 may have forced cancelation of many of our events, however, we at Parks and Recreation are pretty flexible. We may not be able to host the Mud Run this year, but we can still come up with something different and new for 2020," according to the release.

Runs must be completed by Oct. 31. Participants will receive an AJPR Mud-Less Run Medal and AJPR “Mud-Less” Run T-Shirt.

Share a picture with all on social media using the hashtag #AJMudLessRun2020.
