Red Mud Run in Oklahoma City will benefit several causes
Animal rescue groups and a cancer survivor are among the recipients of a mud run scheduled May 20 in Oklahoma City.
If there's one thing organizers of this year's Red Mud Run aren't worried about, it's rain — that will only make it muddier.
The Red Mud Run is a race around an obstacle course in a wrecking yard mud pit, said Vicki Tri, a personal trainer helping coordinate the event.
