Race Info

Mud Mayhem is NOT your typical race! It will challenge you physically and mentally - Do you have what it takes?

Why Am I About To Do This?

We are doing Mud Mayhem to help the kids! There are hundreds of kids in central Illinois who need and want the opportunity to experience the outdoors and gain valuable career guidance; the Exploring program of the W. D. Boyce Council provides the resources to make this possible.

But they need our help! 100% of the proceeds from Mud Mayhem goes DIRECTLY to Exploring programs in central Illinois! Help determine the future of a teenager; change a kid's life!

So...challenge yourself. Challenge your friends. However you do it, just do it for the kids!
