From BGgauntlet.com:

The fourth annual BG Gauntlet Mud Run will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at Phil Moore Park in Bowling Green, KY.

The original event you all know and love is still taking center stage. For ages 12 through adult, the BG Gauntlet Mud Run is 5k of tough terrain, fun obstacles, and more mud than you thought possible! For 2015, we have new obstacles for participants to conquer. This course has less to do with your fitness level, and more to do with your state of mind. Don’t be afraid to overcome your fears and run the Gauntlet!

Can I register for both the Combine and the BG Gauntlet?


Remember: You are guaranteed 2 races for the Combine. So let’s say you register for the 9:10am Combine heat time. Your next race will be around 11:35am (roughly 2 hours apart). If you want to register for the Gauntlet as well, you’ll need be sure to register for a time that will not interfere with your Combine races.

The Gauntlet will take roughly 30 min to 1 hour to complete based upon fitness level and/or flow of participants. A precise time cannot be entirely predicted.

Mud Pie

The third annual “Mud Pie” is geared towards kids aged 6-11. Young participants will be runnin’, jumpin’, crawlin’, pullin’, climbin’, and hangin’ through the same 400 meter course filled with 7-10 obstacles. And unlike the adults, children may go through the course as many times as they wish during their allotted time!

Registration prior to the day of the event is $28 per child. Registration on race day will increase to $38 per child.
