MEDINA — The Orleans County YMCA is bringing back a Mud Run, a 5k with more than 15 obstacles on the course.

The Sept. 28 event starts and finishes at the Sacred Heart Club. The course includes Gallagher’s Farm and the Erie Canalway.

The Y first organized a Mud Run six years ago and had 75 people run and crawl through mud pits, climb over fallen trees, navigate through a field of tires and conquer a host of other obstacles.

“We are teaming up with the Medina Business Association’s Ale in Autumn event to ‘Make it a Day in Medina,’” said Greg Reed, Y director.

Registration for the Mud Run starts at 9:30 a.m. with the races beginning at 10 a.m. The first race will be a “Mini-Mudder” for ages 5-12. At 10:45, individuals, couples, families and teams of 5 will be released in waves to tackle the course.
