Mud, Sweat and Cheers: Hundreds Expected to Get Dirty for a Good Cause in the Evan Lieberman Westchester Medical Center Mud Run

WHEN:   Saturday, June 25. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. Heats begin at 8:30 a.m.

WHAT:   The Evan Lieberman Westchester Medical Center Trauma Mud Run is a 5K foot race where participants traverse over, under and through a series of challenging obstacles including tire swings, cargo nets, fire towers, running streams, a giant mud put and more. Adding to the fun this year will be a new course feature – spray guns – that will douse participants with bright colors as they traverse two of the courses toughest obstacles.

The event is a true endurance race, one that tests runners’ physical and mental abilities. It is also an important fundraiser for Westchester Medical Center’s Joel A. Halpern Regional Trauma Center and its Burn Center services. The Level I trauma and burn care services offered by Westchester Medical Center are the only programs of its kind in the region. They are a lifeline for the Hudson Valley’s most seriously burned and injured residents.

*Fun for children (and their parents!): a special Kids’ Dash heat will step off at 9:15 a.m. for participants under the age of 13. The Kids’ Dash course will be shorter and less challenging than the adult course, but just as muddy and colorful!
