Organizer:Holiday Valley Mudslide Holiday Valley Mudslide is a mudrun that's FUN. Yes, you'll get muddy, yes there is running, yes there are 9 obstacles but NO fire, NO barbed wire and NO electric shocks! The 3.5 mile course starts at the top of the mountain at Spruce Lake (we'll even give you a ride up on a chairlift) and runs along the ridgeline then down the hill. The 5.4 mile course adds a bit of uphill running, just in case you're feeling especially tough.

Short and long courses both start at the top of the hill (chairlift ride is provided) and finish at the bottom of the hill. Both courses follow the rolling hills trail along the ridge top. At the end of mile 2 the two courses split. The short course heads down hill, then follows rolling terrain to the finish line. The long course keeps following the ridge line then goes down and then up a series of very steep climbs using ropes, until it meets up again with the short course following rolling terrain to the finish line. There are a total of 9 obstacles for the short course, 10 for the long course. Obstacles include: lily pads - upside down inner tubes that you step across and try to stay above the water; bumper zone - mudpit below and hanging foam cylinders that try to knock you off your feet; log jam - a canal filled with muddy water and logs on top, you choose to climb over or under; tube crawl - squeeze through a long dark tunnel; slalom - run down hill around the gates like a ski racer; hill climb - slip and slide your way up and over a giant mound of dirt/mud; hay stack - climb up and over; mudslide - a giant slip and slide that finishes in a huge puddle of mud.
1 aid station at midpoint of short course. National Ski Patrol at each obstacle. Water and food at finish line.

Post party entertainment by DJ John Barry. Each participant gets a hot dog and 2 beers (or soft drink) at post party. Our post party is laid back with people of all ages, lots of families, just sitting in the grass and watching the finish line mudslide down a slippery chute into a giant mudpuddle.
The Mudslide is not a torture event. Instead, it is a fun event with great obstacles and water features in a laid back atmosphere in the woods and on the trails of Holiday Valley Ski Resort.
