The Mustang Mud Run 5K, presented by Madison Academy, is a premiere Mud Run offered in North Alabama. The 5K (3.1 miles) obstacle course, situated on the beautiful campus of Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama, will challenge participants with 18-22 obstacles along and through Indian Creek and the adjacent wooded areas of our campus.

This family-friendly, fun mud run is open to anyone over the age of 12. Runners can expect to slip, slide, climb, jump, slog and swing their way to a fun finish where food, refreshments and music are waiting.

We will be running multiple heats including one for elite racers and an open heat for racers ages 12 and up. Runners will be responsible for their own time tracking. Groups are welcome and group discounts are offered. 

The object of the MUSTANG MUD RUN is to have FUN, not to finish first! 



Challenging for the serious mud runner, fun for the whole family.


We could not do this event without our sponsors. Thank you.
