GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – All the mud, muck and mayhem of the Prairie Sludge Trudge, Stuhr Museum’s popular adventure run, returns on Saturday, August 9th.

Runners can choose a 5K or 10K run that throws them over hay bales, across the Wood River, through tall grass and wetlands and eventually over a giant pile of mud. Runners will be scratched up and covered in dirt by the end, but will earn a sense of pride in enduring all the prairie has to offer. All proceeds from this run benefit Stuhr Museum.

This is the third year for the event which drew over 600 runners last year. This year, the course will feature many new obstacles that will challenge runners and leave them exhausted at the end. The course includes challenges such as a mud pile over 10 feet tall, hay bales, a wetland and other natural obstacles, a log carry, a run through the Wood River and more.

All proceeds from this event benefit Stuhr Museum. The cost is $35 for the 5K run and $40 for the 10K and includes food and drink after the race.  If you’re a runner up for the challenge, or if you know someone you’d like to see dragged through the mud (literally), sign up for the first ever Prairie Sludge Trudge. It’s a not so clean time for a good cause. For more information, call the museum at (308) 385-5316.

More information soon.
