Frosty beer, cold margaritas and food wait at finish line.

Students who enjoy getting muddy and running obstacles can register for the fifth annual Muddy Mayhem produced by local race director Derek Brehm.
The race starts at 10 a.m. April 11 at 5418 Cacias Road.
Registration is $55 for individuals and $200 for a team of four.
With registration, participants will receive a chip-timer, moisture-wicking sport shirt, a finisher’s medal and free food after the race.
With a valid ID, free cold beer and margaritas will be available for participants who are of legal drinking age.
“I believe getting students out to events like this is such a great thing because it takes people out of their usual workout mode. It gives them something more to work toward,” Brehm said.
Muddy Mayhem was first hosted by Brehm’s specialty running store Athlete’s Foot, which is no longer open for business.
He asked local running store Run Wild Sports, 1900 Broadway, to help keep the event going.
Kinesiology Professor Dawn Brooks is requiring her KINE 2179, Physical Conditioning 2, and KINE 2176, Cardio Boot Camp 2, class to participate as part of their grade.
“As the second-level class, they need to do something outside of school, something that will challenge them,” Brooks said.
Muddy Mayhem benefits Team Red, White and Blue, www.teamrwb.org, a national nonprofit organization.
Their mission is to enrich the lives of U.S. veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity, according to the group’s website.
