Racing through mud in Sunshine Valley

Annual Mud Run event attracts record number of participants this year

The Sunshine Valley Mud Run featured a 110-foot (33.5-metre)long track this year.

The 10th annual Sunshine Valley Mud Run had a record number of participants on Sunday.

Fifty-nine quads competed for a trophy on the 110-foot (33.5-metre) long track this year.

“It was absolutely amazing. It was our biggest event yet,” said organizer Ryan Ellan. “This is our equivalent to Brigade Days. We trick the track out each time so it’s not the same. The deepest part was probably four feet deep.”

The annual Mud Run is sponsored by Sunshine Valley Development Ltd., Sasquatch Sign Co., Bigfoot Boulder Co., and Stony River Ventures.
