Event Description

THIS IS NOT A "MUD" RACE!  The 27th Annual Mud Mountain 5K Classic and Mile Fun Run is a unique opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities to get off the roads and pavement and run on a true cross country course, all while helping the Edwardsville Cross Country and Track and Booster Club raise funds for the 2023/2024 seasons.  The course being used is a NCAA certified course and is used by both the SIUE Cougars and the EHS Tigers throughout the season.  The course is run almost entirely on grass and is as beautiful as it is challenging! 

By competiing in Mud Mountain XXVII, you will be supporting the EXCTF Booster Club.  Our booster club is unique, as it provides support for both boys teams and girls team in cross country and track and field, at not only Edwardsville High School, but Liberty Middle School and Lincoln Middle School as well.  In all, the EXCTF Booster Club supports over 500 athletes each year.

This is just a reminder that you will have to park at the designated parking lots on University Drive on the SIUE campus.  From the parking lots, you will be shuttled by bus to the SIUE Cross Country Course.  Only cars with handicaped plates will be allowed to park at the course.  Please arrive early to provide additional time for the bus shuttle.  Thank you.
