Sunshine Valley event keeps growing

Annual Mud Run had a record 70 participants on Sunday

The Sunshine Valley Mud Run track is excavated each year

The annual Sunshine Valley Mud Run keeps growing every year, with  a record 70 participants running the course on Sunday.

The track is excavated out each year, giving it different bumps and puddles. Once water is added, it’s an unpredictable course.

“It seems that the popularity of this event is growing due to the number of campers staying at the Holiday Trails Resort for the long weekend in combination with the Sunshine Valley residents and weekenders,” said organizer Ryan Ellan. “Who doesn’t like to get covered in mud?”
