Ready to get down and dirty? Then Prairie du Chien’s Mississippi Mud Run, on Saturday, Sept. 17, is the event for you, said event coordinator, Lorie Floyd.
With the water high and muck abundant, you wouldn’t think it would take much to set up, but you’d be wrong.
“Since I’ve been doing it for years, it’s gotten easier. Now, that everything’s in place, I contact people and start coordinating about two to three weeks out and tell them the where and when,” said Floyd.
After receiving permission from landowners, including the state of Wisconsin and the WSOR railroad, event organizers can get in and start setting up the obstacle course.
