The Inaugural Carroll 5K Mud Run will be held Sunday, June 9, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Freedom Park, 100 Raincliffe Road, Sykesville.
The event is both a 5k race and a 5k mud run.
Runners can run on a flat 5k trail or take the optional detours to paths that include a series of obstacles where runners must climb and crawl to the finish line.
The 5K Mud Run is for ages 13 and up. Younger children are invited to take part in a kids' Mini Mud Run.
Cost to take part is $40 for the 5k mud run; $25 for the 5k basic run; and $10 for the kids’ mud run. A portion of proceeds goes to the Freedom Area Rec Council.
