PLEASANT LAKE — The Parkview Muddy Trail Run was held on Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation in Pleasant Lake.
The event was a huge success and brought out nearly 300 runners. The Muddy Trail Run was designed to be a fun obstacle course where participants endured wading through mud pits and climbing up sand dunes, all for a good cause.
The Parkview Muddy Trail Run is a partnership of Junior Achievement and Anthony Wayne Area Council Boy Scouts of America. Proceeds benefitted both local organizations, and registrants could direct their support into their community.
This event was made possible because of the title sponsor Parkview Health and additional sponsors, BAE, Garrett State Bank, All State Insurance, 21 Alive, Ciocca, Frontier, Nucor, Wood Forest Bank and Ben Davis Chevrolet.
