Weekend Picks: Big Muddy Challenge, Richmond VA

get more from BRO

It’s time again for the Big Muddy Challenge in Richmond, Virginia. There’s still time to get your tickets, and if you’ve never been, it’s the perfect time to start. Anyone six and over is welcome, so the whole family can participate.

For those of you who haven’t heard, the event was created by a group of active individuals who found that having children meant they had a lot less free time. They also noticed it was difficult to find endurance events that their kids could enjoy. Thus the Big Muddy Challenge was born — an event designed specifically for parents and children to experience a fun run together.

If you’re looking to volunteer, there’s a bunch of different roles you can perform from registration to supervising the course, and everything in between. You’ll get a free t-shirt and food for the day, plus a free parent/child registration.

This year the event is being held August 2 at Ashland Berry Farm just a little north of Richmond. There’ll be a wide variety of vendors, from food trucks to bands, and race sponsors at the event for you to peruse before or after your race. It’s a truly family event so there’s something for everyone.
