Mudzilla Mud Run – Saturday, July 14th
Time to get muddy! Grab your friends, family and oldest pair of sneakers to get ready for the Mudzilla Mud Run sponsored by Scott Green Excavating and the Town of Gypsum. This is the dirtiest race in the valley and you’re guaranteed to have fun, get muddy and be challenged. The Mudzilla obstacle course showcases steep hill climbs, tunnel crawls, tire carry, and so much more.

This course is only a mile long which makes it racer and spectator friendly. From 9am-11am the adults (age 13+) will run as many laps as possible. The kids race (ages 5-12) will be on the same course from 11:30am-12pm. Parents are invited to walk the course with their kids. It’s $32 for adults and $22 for kids.

Oktoberfest 5k – Saturday, October 6th
Break out your steins and lederhosen to earn those beers at the Gypsum Oktoberfest by starting the morning with a little exercise! The race starts at 9am at the Gypsum Rec Center. It’s only $10 for adults and $5 for kids! There will be a mile course set up for kids.
