April 27th RACE RECAP

Thank you South Carolina for making our inaugural Charleston race a success!  Mud maniacs from as far away as Florida, Georgia and North Carolina showed up to conquer Project Mud.  We had such a great turnout and response, we're going to come back for a fall event.  Mark your calendars now for Saturday, September 21st as Project Mud invades the Charleston Tea Plantation once again.  More details regarding our return below. 


Project Mud is proud to announce the men's division winner of the 9:30 competitive heat.  Congratulations to Michael Lucas who was the first to cross the finish line for the day with a time of 22:03.  Michael's prize package includes a $100 cash purse and a free registration for any future Project Mud event of his choice. 

The winner of the female division in the 9:30 competitive heat was Kathy Giovia with a time of 25:24.  Kathy's prize package also includes a $100 cash prize and a free registration for any future Project Mud event of her choice.

The fastest team to finish the course for the day was team Wolfpack!  Their 4 fastest times averaged 27:48.  The entire team will receive free registration for any future Project Mud event of their choice. 

Winners of the Best Team Costume category went to TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)  Each member of the team will receive a free registration to any future Project Mud event of their choice. We also had two free tickets to the Charleston Beer Garden that were donated for the best costume, so they'll have to decide who the lucky beneficiaries are amongst themselves.

Overall, team, and heat results can be found here.
