Who doesn’t like to get a little dirty? Now you have the chance to do just that while supporting a great cause. The REI Muddy Budd Nashville will take over the Tennessee Titan’s playground and make it their own while benefiting the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Teams are encouraged to dress to impress in their most outrageous costumes and get ready for a series of eight to 12 obstacles that will lead you across the Cumberland River via the pedestrian bridge. Teams of two or more have the option to combine biking and running by switching off between the two during the 5-7 mile stretch or sticking together as a unit to complete the course on foot for a 3-4.5 mile course. Finally, the race concludes with what is arguably the most anticipated portion of the competition- participants must crawl through a 50-foot mud pit in the final stretch of the course. Founder of the Muddy Buddy Adventure Series, Bob Babbitt states, “Along with great views of the downtown skyline, our participants will enjoy a more convenient location this year and experience their beloved football field in a whole new way.”
Proceeds from the Muddy Buddy will serve to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation in order to support research for early detection and screening as well as exercise and diet research related to the disease. Participants can register to participate with the fundraising and awareness program associated with PCF, Athletes for a Cure. As a family-friendly event, participants are encouraged to load up the kiddos for some dirty fun. The Muddy Buddy Adventures series accommodates children between the ages of ages 4 and 11 by offering a Mini Muddy Buddy complete with obstacles and a mud pit. So bring your kids, your family or your buddy and get ready to get muddy!
