Fellowship of Christian Athletes bringing Goliath Mud Challenge to Tyrone May 31

Thrill-seeking athletes will soon have an opportunity to showcase their adventurous side. After a successful inaugural year in 2013, the Goliath Mud Challenge will return on Saturday, May 31.

As the event’s beneficiary, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes seeks to create a competitive experience that builds character and dedication while embracing relationships and strategic partnerships.

The action-packed, family-friendly event features a one-mile FUN Run for children and a five-kilometer course (for adults) with 18 grueling obstacles that include wall climbing and dredging mud terrains. The Mud Challenge will be hosted by the Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran Church at 411 Palmetto Rd in Tyrone.

“We are thrilled for another race,” shares Mark Anderson – Director of Operations, Fayette County Fellowship Christian Athletes. “The Goliath Mud Challenge continues to be a platform for building the community while challenging individuals, families and teams of all ages and abilities to participate in an obstacle course that encourages teamwork.”

Prizes will be awarded to participants in three categories. Special awards will be presented to those with the most fund raising, the most spirit and the largest team. In 2013, Piedmont Healthcare participated in the race and received accolades as the largest team.

Parents who are competing in the race are encouraged to drop their children off at The “Goliath Kidz Corral”, the kids zone sponsored by More Than Moonwalks. The “Kidz Corral” is managed by child care professionals and will provide activities through out the day to keep the children entertained.

Individuals, families and teams can register for the various waves. The fee is $25 for the one mile FUN Run and begins at 10:45a.m. For the adults, registration is $65 for each of the waves, including three special categories – Elite, Ladies Only and Military/PD/1st Responder. The Elite wave begins at 8:00a.m. Registration information, the complete Goliath Mud Challenge schedule and event updates are available online www.goliathmudchallenge.com.
