FILTHY 5K MUD RUN

EXPERIENCE THE NATION'S
PREMIER OUTDOOR SPORTS
AND MUSIC FESTIVAL!

MAY 18-20  I  RICHMOND, VIRGINIA

FRIDAY, MAY 19 - 6:00 PM

The Filthy 5k Mud Run kicks off Dominion Energy Riverrock with some down and dirty fun. It's not just a trail run with rugged terrain - as if the roots, rocks and uneven ground aren't tough enough! Be prepared to trudge through the James River, rock hop across the dry way and climb, crawl and leap over other natural obstacles along the course. There may be an ice cold beer awaiting you (if you're 21, of course), but first you have to crawl through a massive mud pit at the finish line! As if the Filthy 5k was not enough fun, now you can get your dog into the mud too! Sign up for the Dog Wave, a part of the Filthy 5k on May 19th, and bring your favorite canine through the trails, along the dry way, through the river and into the mud pit. What better way to spend a Friday night with man's best friend!
