Fun Mud Run - Once again, it’s time for the Ridgecrest Fun Mud Run, set for Saturday, June 8, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Desert Empire Fairground’s bandstand. This event benefits the Southern Sierra Boys & Girls Club and is open to individuals and teams ages three to 103!

The event includes a military-style obstacle course, a small “mini-mudder course” for tots, entertainment, food, drink and festival activities. New for this year are chip timing, imported mud, more obstacles and a costume contest.

All proceeds after expenses will go to support the Boys & Girls Club. Opportunities to contribute to the Fun Mud Run are by participation, donation, sponsorship and partnership.

Sponsors will be acknowledged through local media coverage and recognized with their logos on the specially designed event shirt, website coverage and more.
