Description: The Highland Mud Run is an exciting 5K obstacle run (roughly 3 miles) located on the property of North Highland Church in Columbus, Georgia. The Highland Mud Run is a mud plus obstacles race. Well, it's not really a 'race'. It's an adventure through mud, water, and fun obstacles. You will get wet and dirty and get some good exercise doing it. Those who are pregnant or think you might become pregnant, we advise you not to run the Mud Run.  

The Cause: The Highland Mud Run is a non-profit event to raise funds for special needs in the our community.  All proceeds from the Highland Mud Run will go to the STL (Speed The Light) a student Initiative for missions and 3 local community causes: Teen Challenge (girls center in Seale, AL), Sound Choices, and Children's Miracle Network.  Please come, have fun, and raise support for those in need!

If you have a team of 10 people or larger, there are group rates we can offer.  Please email for special pricing.  You will receive a response within 12 hours.

Early Packet Pick Up: Thursday, April 28 from 3:30-7 PM and Friday, April 29 from 12-7 PM at Big Dog Running Company
