About the Race:
The Heroes Mud Run is a fun way to challenge yourself, physically and mentally with 20 obstacles strategically spread over 3.1 miles of cross-country terrain. This year’s race offers more mud, U.S. Marine motivators, and all-new obstacles to keep you motivated. You must be 14 years of age on race day to participate in the adult run.
Bring the whole family because kids ages 4 through 13 can join in on the fun with the Little Heroes Mud Run, a 2K with Mud and 6-8 obstacles just their size. None of the obstacles require swimming and parents can run alongside their children for Free.
The Heroes Mud Run proudly supports our local Heroes. A portion of the proceeds of the Heroes Mud Run will benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, the Heart of a Marine Foundation and USO of Illinois. All organizations are 501(c) charities.
Come show your support by participating, volunteering or cheering your Hero on.

As a benefit to all racers, the Heroes Mud Run will offer a bag check for all participants. Each racer must have their bib number on to check and claim their bag.
