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.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit animal rescue groups and other charitable causes.

The event is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 20 at K&M Wrecking and Demolition, 4920 SW 134.

Registration before May 14 is $40. After that, registration is $45 until race day, when it costs $50. The cost for a child to register is $30. Parking is $5.

People are encouraged to bring pet food and bedding to donate to the animal rescues, Tri said.

It's free (aside from the parking charge) to stand at the edge of the pit and watch, Tri said.

Why run through mud?

'Cause it's fun!” said Tri, who has a pair of stained sneakers she uses just for mud runs.
