JONESBORO – Howl’s Heroes, a student organization at Arkansas State University, is hosting the fifth annual Howler Mud/Obstacle Run on Saturday, Sept. 23.
This fundraiser is a run of about seven miles, with 16 or more obstacles of various sizes and difficulty. The Military Science Building is the starting point for the race and the first team will start at 10 a.m.
This year the race has three divisions, with staggered registration and start times. High school and Junior ROTC teams register at 9, followed by athletic and crossfit teams at 11 a.m., then open class at 1 p.m. Some of the race obstacles include the pond trudge, hay bale wall, buddy carry, tire flip, arctic dumpster dive, tire field and Humvee push.
Members of Howl’s Heroes expressed appreciation to the Jonesboro community sponsors for their support. Proceeds from the event will help fund special events throughout the year.
Anyone can participate in the race in teams of five for a fee of $100 per group, or $25 per person for those who choose to participate individually. The fee will be $125 and $30 if paid the day of the race.
Payments can be made by credit card online at AState.edu/Howler or by dropping the payment off at the Military Science Building between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
