May 14th -- 8AM

About:

The event takes place on one of the Northeast's premier permanent obstacle course venues. The Newbsanity Mud Gauntlet course is consistently nominated by MudRunGuide as one of the top permanent obstacle courses in the nation.

The Newbsanity Mud Gauntlet is a  tough and challenging course but offers options on many of the obstacles. This 3.5 mile course winds around 100 acres of wooded terrain in which you'll encounter many natural and man-made obstacles.
