Mad River Mountain hosts its first obstacle course event Saturday, but it is open to women only.
The Pretty Muddy Women’s Mud Run takes place from about 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants must traverse the 5-kilometer course, which takes them up and down the slopes as they traverse muddy obstacles. A finish line party with live music rounds out the experience.
A portion of the proceeds from the event go to the non-profit Girls on the Run organization that aims to help girls age 8 to 13 develop life skills through running.
Cost is about $70 for adults or $50 for students and military with valid identification. Tickets can be purchased at the gates or participants can preregister until 8 p.m. Friday at prettymuddycolumbus.eventbrite.com.
