About Us

The Armed Forces Day - Mud Run is the Original Northern California Mud Run, formerly the Mather Mud Run, established in 1999 by SDI Rodney Carson.

We have 10 previous successful mud run events under our belt!

High Speed - Low Drag: No parking problems, no waiting on course, no injuries and no hassles!

Got Mud? Our mud pit is not dug in horse pastures or a rodeo arena and filled with water and horse manure!

Come Run and Support Our Troops!
