The first annual Mountain Goat Mud Run, sponsored by Tenacity Adventure Fitness and the Mountain Goat Trail Alliance, will be held in Tracy City on Saturday, October 20.
“I personally love doing obstacle course races, and ever since moving to the Mountain I’ve thought it’s the perfect place for a mud run. Obstacle course runners are die-hard, and with our location between Chattanooga and Nashville I figured we could attract a good-sized crowd up to enjoy all our natural beauty. We’re hoping to do this every year to celebrate the fall season with live local music and fun for adults and kids alike,” said Micah Sparacio, owner of Tenacity Adventure Fitness and race organizer.
The Mountain Goat Mud Run is a 3-mile obstacle course mud run with 15 natural obstacles on the side and top of the mountain on Cove Creek Farm in Tracy City. The event opens at 2 p.m., and continues until after sunset when there will be a bonfire, live music beginning at 5 p.m., and a pig roast to celebrate the fall harvest. Local vendors will be present.
The run begins at 3 p.m., and runners will be released in groups of 20 every fifteen minutes until there are no runners left.
All proceeds from the run go to the Mountain Goat Trail Alliance.
