Mustang Mud Run, Madison Academy’s Spring Fundraiser – Free Photos @ Madison Academy
Apr 18 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

The Mustang MudRun 5K, presented by Madison Academy, is a premiere Mud Run offered in North Alabama. The 5K (3.1 miles) obstacle course situated on the beautiful campus of Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama will challenge participants with 15-20 obstacles along and through Indian Creek and the adjacent wooded areas on campus. This family-friendly fun mud run is open to anyone over the age of 12. Runners can expect to slip, slide, climb, jump, slog and swing their way to a fun finish where refreshments and music are waiting.

The Lil’ Muddy 1K obstacle run is for all of the awesome future mud runners aged 6-11. Lil’ Muddy racers will have a fun filled course with challenging obstacles and plenty of MUD! A parent/guardian can race in both the 5K and 1K with the 5K entrance fee or just the 1K at the reduced fun run rate.

We will be running multiple heats including one for elite racers and an open heat for racers ages 12 and up. Runners will be responsible for their own time tracking. The objective is to have fun and complete the run, not to finish first. Grab a team and step outside of your box!

Tri for Ole Glory
Jul 4 @ 7:00 am – 10:30 am
Tri for Ole Glory

Team Rocket Tri Club has partnered with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to produce a reverse order Off Road Triathlon to showcase the property surrounding the USSRC and The Huntsville Botanical Garden. Huntsville’s growing need for a family friendly mountain bike/running trail located near UAH and close to town, makes this a perfect venue. This annual event will provide charitable funds for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Space Camp Scholarship Fund.

Course Description

As a reverse order Sprint Distance Triathlon, this fun race begins with a 3.1 mile run that is on a mix of dirt, gravel and pavement surfaces. Racers will transition to an 8 mile mountain bike course that slips through a wide variety of hardwoods, cedar and pine groves. You will get to see numerous airplanes, rockets and space equipment as you wind though a course that looks flat but will fool you with climbs and twists, creek crossings and jumps. Finally racers will be able to cool off with a 200 meter swim in the Aviation Challege swim area. Never deeper than 4 feet, tired swimmers have the ability to stand up and catch their breath if needed. This swim venue is considered beginner friendly. Awards will follow the race in the shade of the covered pavilion, affectionally known as the Bubble at the USSRC.

The event is hosted by the Huntsville-area alumni chapters of Auburn University, Mississippi State University and the University of Alabama. The funds raised by this event will be split by the chapters based on the affiliation designated by each race participant during registration. In addition to the exciting individual competition, there will be a “rivalry” competition between the fans of each school and the winning chapter will the awarded a grand trophy and bragging rights for the next year. This will be an exciting competitive atmosphere with the thrill of the race and the anticipation of being on the eve of football season! The race will originate from Clearwater Lake in Owens Cross Roads, a beautiful private lake nestled in the valley just east of Green Mountain. The lake was designed and is used primarily for competitive water skiing. The very clear water and relatively shallow depths allow for excellent conditions for the swim portion of the competition.
