Participants gear up for annual Muddy Bloody Run
EVERETT - People in the local area are getting ready for the upcoming Muddy Bloody Run in Everett this spring.
The run is an over 4-mile wilderness terrain course in Tenley Park.
Master of Games Tony Barr said the course consists of almost 40 named obstacles.
Even though the name of the course sounds intimidating, the co-chairs of the event said the name comes from local history and assure that people of all ages could take on the run.
“We’ve had people of all ages come out. I think our youngest participant was 4, and our oldest was in their 60s,” said Mistress of Games Kelly Winegardner.
While this run may seem like all fun and mud, Barr said the event is about getting families active and giving back to the community.
“We split the proceeds between the Everett High-Middle School Renaissance Foundation, which funds events for the students. The other part of the funds go to the Tenley Park Recreation board. They do things like build the pavilion here and take care of the park,” said Barr.
Above all, Barr believes there’s something unique about this race.
“You will see people run down the course saying, ‘This is awesome,” said Barr.
The fifth annual Muddy Bloody Run will take place on May 21.
