Fun in the Sun Mud Run

The heart and mission of Fun in the Sun Mud Run is to bring a new event to our community and its guests giving us the ability to raise funds for Charity. 100% of the proceeds will “Help Charities overcome obstacles one at a time”. We believe in and encourage by example the spirit of team work and as a team we envision everyone pitching in to do the dirty work. We have a dedicated committee, a swarm of volunteers, eager sponsors and the support of Bay County Inc. Together we will provide a family friendly environment with entertainment for spectators and a challenging muddy course for participants.

Please scroll down the page to register. We need your participation to make this event the best ever!

Teeter Totter

As participants approach the first obstacle you  will be tasked to keep moving as you head over the teeter totters using balance and agility. It sounds easier than it is, so be prepared.

Triple D

The Down, Dark and Dirty cranks up the action. Get ready for multiple challenges as you climb up a tire wall only to use an alternate route down, heading into a dark belly crawl. You’re promised to be muddy by the time you see the light on the other side.


You will see this one coming. Plan on a muddy pit crawl under the Toyota Tundra. You won't be under there long enough to appreciate the beauty.

Tunnel Through

It a challenging task that will leave you some of you laughing and crying. One thing for sure, you’ll be plenty dirty after pushing hard to tunnel through.


Just when you thought you made it through the tough stuff, the challenge of the Culvert creeps up on you. Pick up speed and run hard  while going down to build the momentum you will need to get up and get out.

Up and Over

You gotta get up to get over and you gotta get over to get through this one. It's a simple as it sounds yet something tell us it's harder than we think. Simply stated, just climb up and over to stay on course.


You have reached the highest point of the course and while the view is usually the best at the top, Mudslide will have your sights set on the muddy slide down below.

Spinning Barrel

It's as fun as a basket of marbles and as complicated as teaching your monkey to roller skate. Either way, you can’t go over so you must go under the spinning barrels.

Tough Tire Track

Your Toyota rides best with the wheels balanced and aligned, and you will want to adopt the same logic to work your way through the tires while looking out for the swinging ones, too.


By now, you have conquered many challenging obstacles and are ready to kick back for a bit. With that in mind, you must work your way through this one on your back. Think army crawl but with a fun rollover.


With you covered in mud and scaring the kids, you will be fit for the Dumpster. Go ahead and jump right in for a cool rinse to refresh and refine your muddy self.

Concentration Causeway

The last challenge will challenge your concentration while bringing it to life, too. Be sure to keep your balance on the beam while dodging those oh so fun surprises.

Still want more muddy fun?

For your entertainment we have some competitive tug of war. This will be performed in scheduled brackets throughout the day. Pull up a seat on the bleachers and cheer for your favorite team. By the end of the day someone will take home the traveling trophy.
