5K The Hard Way is a 3.2 mile Mud Run that combines insane obstacles with some of the most rugged, hidden terrain in Nebraska!

From beginner mud runners and joggers to hardcore ninja warriors and marathon runners, our obstacle course will challenge each and every one of you. 5k The Hard Way will test your strength, agility, stamina and mind.

And the obstacle course? Welcome to THE JUNGLE! Participants will wind through rugged forest country and a vineyard, cross creeks and daring suspension bridges and slip down our infamous 100 foot water slide! You will sprint across balance beams (looking down on beaver dams), scale climbing walls, navigate up and down steep, demanding bluffs and run up and over the Magic Bus!

If you start to fade you can grab a quick shot at the Lucky Bucket Bar right in the heart of the jungle.

We are a LOCAL race. Every time a national race comes to the area they take tens of thousands of dollars away from the state. We are Nebraska’s biggest and baddest mud run!

There is also no cover charge for spectators to enjoy the music and watch the festivities. And as always…FREE PARKING!

Feel the extreme sense of pride and power as you cross that finish line!
