SCOTTVILLE — The Muddy Fox Trot, a family-friendly 5K mud run with a boot camp style obstacle course, returns for the seventh year to the West Shore Community College campus with course flights starting at 10 a.m., Saturday, July 23.

The course will include dredging through muddy trenches, scaling muddy hillsides, slogging through shallow water crossings, and climbing over wooden walls and hay bales, and will challenge the weekend warrior through seasoned athlete. 

“It’s an entire day of family fun as participants slip, slide, and slosh their way to victory while raising scholarship money for many of the college’s deserving students,” says Julie Page Smith, race organizer and Wellness Center director. “Our focus is on creating a unique event and the improved course will make it a memorable one whether running or watching.” 

The adult registration fee is $20. There is no registration fee for ages 16 and under. The day of the run, current WSCC students will be free with a valid student ID.

Pre-registered participants will receive a free t-shirt. When registering, a t-shirt size can be selected online.
               
Post-run activities will include healthy snacks, drinks, ice cream courtesy of House of Flavors Inc., and a chance to meet Westy the Fox.

Proceeds from the event will support the WSCC Foundation student scholarship fund.
