Presented by Ed Voyles Automotive, the Chamblee Fun Mud Run will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 8 am at Chamblee Middle School. The event is hosted by the CMS Education Foundation, the City of Chamblee and DeKalb County Fire & Rescue.

The inaugural Chamblee Fun Mud Run was held on May 2, 2015. It drew over 800 participants and raised $22,500 to directly benefit the Chamblee Middle School Education Foundation. The 2016 race quickly grew to 1,200 participants and raised $43,000 for the students and teachers of CMS.
Money raised from this event has been used to support CMS students and teachers by funding:
In only two years, this unique spin on your everyday 5K has become a fast favorite in the area, literally putting Chamblee Middle School on the map in the hearts and minds of the community.
The race takes place at Chamblee Middle School and the 5K course winds through the streets of the Keswick Village and Sexton Woods neighborhoods. Participants complete several different obstacles with mud and water features throughout various locations in Keswick Park.
The Chamblee Fun Mud Run 5K is open to the community, and is recommended for children ages 8 and up.
There is also a 3K Muddy Buddy race (just under 2 miles) immediately following the Chamblee Fun Mud Run, recommended for children ages 5 and up, as well as anyone else who wants to try out the mud obstacles, but run a shorter course. This is not a timed race so it's a good option for younger children or anyone who wants to participate and have fun but does not want to get muddy/dirty. Just come on out and run, jog, walk and complete any obstacles that you'd like.
Children ages 5-7 MUST be accompanied by a REGISTERED parent or guardian during the race and through the obstacles. The Muddy Buddy estimated start time is 8:45am.
Registration is now open to the public! Be sure and reserve your spot!
Jan 1-Feb 28: 5K = $25, MB = $20
March 1-31: 5K = $30, MB = $25
April 1-25: 5K = $35, MB = $30
Plus runsignup.com fees. (Note: Online registration fees at runsignup.com are charged per transaction, not per runner, so you save when registering multiple runners at once.)

Cancellations, Refunds and Transfers
Please note that the registration system allows registrations to be cancelled for about 15 minutes after the transaction is processed. After that time, we are unable to process any refunds. We also highly discourage participants to transfer, buy and sell race registrations, or give registrations to each other outside of the registration system. This means that people are participating in the race who are not technically in our system and have not signed a waiver. This is a safety and liability issue for the school and foundation, so we would appreciate everyone's understanding and cooperation. If you find you are unable to participate for any reason after you've registered, please consider your registration a donation to the CMS Education Foundation. You can still claim your race t shirt, bag and giveaways at Race Bag Pickup!
This event will cap at 1,500 participants. If space allows, we will accept onsite registrations April 28 & 29 at packet pickup and on the morning of the race on a limited basis between 6:45-7:30 am. The cost for either race is $40, cash or credit card only.
Please note that late registrants are not guaranteed a race shirt and bag. These will be available as supplies last on race day. Late registrants may visit the registration table after the race to claim any leftover shirts and bags. For this reason, we highly recommend registering online before the April 25 deadline!
Race Bag Pickup
All participants who register online via runsignup.com before the April 25 deadline are guaranteed a t shirt and race bag at race bag pickup. Race bag pickup will be in a different location this year at The Chamblee Civic Center (3520 Broad Street, Chamblee, GA 30341) from 12-4 pm on Friday, April 28.
Race Bag Pickup will continue at our Food Truck Event at Keswick Park (3496 Keswick Dr, Chamblee, GA 30341) on Friday evening from 5-9pm.

Shoes left at the race will be cleaned and recycled into playground material by Big Peach Running Co.
That said, we hope you'll wear a t-shirt that represents your school, club, etc.!
We will have some towels on hand this year, but it would be a great idea to bring towels with you if it's a chilly morning and/or leave some towels in the car to protect from mud.Waivers

Nourish & Flourish is a Health and Wellness practice in Brookhaven led by Certified Holistic Nutrition Coach Renee Boyer. I work with the concept of bio-individuality. Instead of getting a one-size-fits-all plan based on a cookie-cutter approach, I create customized plans for my clients based on their individual circumstances, lifestyle habits, health conditions, goals and other needs. I am all about making "healthy" a way of life through small gradual lifestyle changes. To me, healthy living is more than fad dieting, a Hollywood boot camp or the latest antioxidant berry from Costa Rica. Healthy living is a lifestyle choice that everyone should try because taking care of yourself from the inside is not only the best way to feel and look fabulous, it is the absolute best disease prevention and health insurance there is. Whatever your specific goals are, I want to help you achieve them using my experience in holistic nutrition and wellness.
