BIGDOGBRAG Announces 5th Anniversary of "THE FUNNER MUD RUN" in Colorado Springs and Pueblo

Colorado's muddiest race is family friendly and also supports Angels of America's Fallen, a local charity that helps children of fallen military and first responders.

BIGDOGBRAG, one of the most popular and family friendly mud run obstacle courses in Colorado, is celebrating five years as "The Funner Mud Run" with races in Colorado Springs and Pueblo this June. 

The race that started with 1,100 participants has grown to over 5,000 "muddy enthusiasts" ranging from five up to 72 years old, proving that age doesn't matter when it comes to completing the fun yet challenging obstacle course.  

Thousands have participated in the 5k BIG DOG course in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, with over 26 obstacles, including Tarzan swings, cargo net climbs, canyon traverses, 15 mud pits, monkey bars and rope climbs. The 2k LITTLE DOG course, one of the only races of its kind in the country for kids ages five and up and their families, features 15 fun obstacles with a 60 foot slide into a huge mud pit. 

Registration for the 5K race, for ages 10 and up, is discounted at $64 for sign-ups before race day. Military and first responders will receive 15% off the registration price with coupon code. Cost for the 2K race is $54 for adults, and $29 for kids ages 5-11, until race day. Participants receive a BIGDOGBRAG dog tag, brag-worthy t-shirt, action photos and a temporary tattoo. There is no charge for spectators, and there will also be a Kids Zone that offers free childcare for children 3 – 11 years old.
