Mud Run in the New York Observer

“I’m absolutely convinced that people who sign up for things like the Tough Mudder run aspired to be Pigpen when they read Peanuts as children. I always aspired to be Red Baron, which is why I sign up for activities that allow me to sit atop houses pretending to fly a plane (and I wait, eagerly, for these activities to present themselves). Either way, it was pretty great to have a childhood where you could just sit around reading comics. That brings us to The Race For A Cure Mud Run to support pediatric cancer research, the only muddy run I will endorse. The two-mile run is open to seasoned mud runners, as well as families, and anyone over the age of 6 (though kids under 13 need to be accompanied by an adult). Proceeds go toward two nonprofit organizations, Hope & Heroes and the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organizers suggest bringing water, a change of clothes and a towel–and a positive attitude.”
Sunday June 7, Purchase College Campus, 735 Anderson Hill Road, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., $40.
