[of Getting MUDDYforourMilitary!]
Thank you all so much for coming out to support this event and the military community of Hampton Roads! what a great event this has been for the past fourteen years. You have told us that we are one of your hometown favorites and strive each year to bring you the best event possible. This year marks a banner celebration for the Armed Services YMCA Mud Run - it's our 15th and we want to spend it with you! This year's race will be held on August 8th, 2015 on the beautiful beaches of JEB Little Creek.
Here at the Armed Services YMCA we've been getting MUDDY and raising money to help the junior enlisted military families in Hampton Roads for 14 years through this race! All proceeds stay right here to provide enrichment programs for local families. The ASYMCA Mud Run is the most intense 8K on the East Coast. It consists of 5 miles of sand, woods,water hazards, obstacles, & mud pits. You'll be grunting like a muddy gator towards the finish line!
Our One Mile Mini Mud is perfect for the kids. Just enough to challenge them and get them and give them a chance to look like a sugar cookie at the end of the race. Our family friendly races offer something for everyone. You don't have to be in the military to race, you just have to be tough as a gator! We love to see all of our Hampton Roads community out here supporting our military. If you are active duty junior enlisted (E-5 and below), you'll receive a discounted rate of just $35 through July 31st.
This year we also have a "virtual" option for those who want to participate but are on deployment or have left the area.
The Armed Services YMCA is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the mission of making military life easier for the junior enlisted service members serving in all branches of the military in the Hampton Roads region.
Your contribution to the Mud Run goes directly to find these life changing programs.
Thank you for your support!
