For those who volunteer, we offer you a special opportunity to come on Friday, April 5th, at 5:30 pm to participate in a trial run of the race course. As a group, we will run the course, check the flags, test out the obstacles, and make sure things are good and muddy! Afterwards, we will have dinner, a meeting, and a time of worship. We will also offer lodging for volunteers (and runners) who are traveling from a considerable distance away.

All volunteers report at 6:00 am on race day for a quick breakfast and a mandatory meeting before heading out to your areas. Expect to be out until about 3:00 pm on race day. We will provide snacks and water for you to take along on your job for the day.

On April 4th, Camp Lake Stephens will be hosting the second annual Mighty Muddy 5K & Fun Run! The entire event will take place on the grounds and trails of CLS, with over a dozen natural and man-made obstacles being scattered throughout the course.  While any race is sure to be challenging, our ultimate goal is for this experience to be fun and enjoyable for all ages! We advise participants beforehand to fully embrace the mud and get ready for some incredible memories with family, friends, and your community.

All proceeds will be going directly to our Camper Scholarship Fund, with the hope that Camp Lake Stephens will continue being a place that opens up to doors to all who wish to experience the joy and life of camp. With hosting an event of this magnitude, we are also blessed with the opportunity to partner with local companies and organizations that desire to contribute to making the Mighty Muddy an incredible race day experience for all in attendance.
