LYNDONVILLE – Orleans County YMCA is announcing the return of its much-anticipated fundraiser, the “Bad Apple Mud Run,” scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday at LynOaken Farms.

Participants will embark on an adventure through sprawling orchards, navigating a labyrinth of mud and obstacles that will test their fitness and determination, according to sponsors.

There were 108 runners who braved the course last year, raising much-needed funds for youth programming and scholarships at the YMCA. This year, the YMCA is hoping for 150 runners to challenge themselves, while supporting this important cause.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at LynOaken Farms, 11540 Platten Rd. Runners can secure their participation in advance by clicking here.

Every contribution, great or small, will play a pivotal role in supporting youth programs and scholarships at the local YMCA, according to director Jesse Cudzilo.

For more information or to register, participants can also contact Cudzilo at jcudzilo@glowymca.org or by calling (585) 798-2040.
