Sponsorship and Volunteering

The Casco's Ultimate Mud Challenge has changed its status to become an ecumenical fundraising event. Our mission focus moving forward continues to be "To Support Ministries that Support Others", but now 100% of the funds raised will stay locally to support local missions. We are reaching out into the surrounding community nurturing the mind, body and spirit of those in need while witnessing God's love to them.

Description of Event: Casco's Ultimate Mud Challenge is an Off Road 5K Obstacle Course Run (OCR) and 1K Children of All Ages Fun Run. The 5K race will progress through a number of physical and muddy challenges. Sole runners and teams of 4 or more, age 13 and up, or with a guardian stride-for-stride 12 and under, can run competitively for awards or just for fun. Teams work together to help each other through the course and all the team individual times will be averaged to create the overall team time. The children's fun run, for those who are young and the young at heart, will be untimed and a shorter 1K run through some of the muddiest parts of the course.
