Hays Medical Center's Center for Health Improvement and Fort Hays State University are sponsoring the third annual Big Creek Mud Run on Aug. 24. The mud run is a 2-mile obstacle course that winds through the FHSU campus.

"This has been a great event for the region." said Kelly Flaska, Fitness/Aquatics Supervisor of the Center for Health Improvement. "People from all over the state come to participate."

The run is carried out in heats of 40 people. The first wave begins at 8:30 a.m. and a new wave starts every 20 minutes, with the last one beginning at 11:30 a.m.

there is a kids mud bath at noon that lets children 3 and older have fun playing in the mud without obstacles. There also will be food, music and prizes.

Registration deadline is Aug. 21. The fee is $25 for participants, who must be 18 years and older. All participants will receive a T-shirt, participation medal and lunch.
