CLEAR CREEK CANYON – The Fremont Indian State Park and Museum hosted the third annual Fremont Fun Mudder run in Clear Creek Canyon, Saturday. The 3.1-mile course included 14 obstacles for the runners to pass through, over and under. Approximately 40 people participated in the event. 

“We have had a lot of fun with the Fun Mudder events over the past three years,” said Amy Ramsland, curator. “Geof Brookman and I had a great time designing the course for this year’s event in particular. We spread the obstacles out more and incorporated new ones. I think the waterslide obstacle was a hit with the runners this year.”

The course obstacles included – the knee breaker, a clean slate, ninja quad steps, pull it man, the black abyss, palatial palettes, lumpy stumpy, tires galore, pit of despair, muddy madness, beam of bonkers, the ancient mudslide and the incline of doom. 

“This was the first mud run I have done,” said Aaron Hessey. “I had an absolute great time. This makes me want to participate in more of these types of runs in the future.” 

Fremont Indian State Park and Museum will be hosting a Navajo taco cookout with live music Saturday, July 20. This picnic in the park will start at 10 a.m., and wrap up at 2 p.m.
