Mad Max Mud Run 2012

This Article Brought To You By:

Up from the earth come champions and the elements of earth keep our champions strong. On October 20th, 2012 The Mad Max Mud Run took place on Hwy 271 in Powderly, Texas. This rugged 12 obstacle no guts no glory course brought hundreds of unbreakable athletes from 14 – 114 together for a good cause. All proceeds went to the Lamar County Coalition of Education Business and Industry.” All the pain belongs to you.”

After registration, runners gathered in 4 heats and warmed up with the Paris Jazzercise team prior to the start of this military style monster. The groups gave it all they had and every runner that crossed the finish line was given a commemorative dog tag as proof of their endurance. We were there as the first entrant powered through to the end and claimed his tag. Gable McDaniel (#85), a cross country runner who is a sophomore at Paris High School left with the first heat at 9am and beat the brutal course with ease.

Many area schools and organizations participated in the annual crowd drawing event. North Lamar, Paris High, and Prairiland High School’s  along with the Army National Guard all pitched in to raise funds for the Coalition.

The Mad Max Mud Run was a challenge for the mind and body of everyone that left the starting gate. With determination in their hearts and seeing the finish line with every breath, the tenacious trekkers tasted personal victory one by one.  Who knows what next year brings as this yearly mud run grows in numbers!
