Welcome to the Uff Da mud run - obstacle racing Extreme North Dakota (END) style. Your hosts, Ole and Lena invite you to participate in an 'extremely' fun and challenging 5K course that will encompass roughly 20 obstacles as it winds its way along the Greenway in Greater Grand Forks.  There are lots of reasons why this race will be different than the plethora of other events that seem to be popping up everywhere these days - so before you choose which one to do make sure to check out our FAQ page, and as Ole would say - "Yust make dat der choice visely!"
