Spectators are invited to take in the third annual Mud Mulisha Mud Run at Shawnigan Lake this Saturday.

The event consists of a 6km run with more than 20 obstacles that participants are required to get past, over or through.

The race begins at 8:30 a.m. with the elite group, followed by the first open heat at 8:40 a.m., and subsequent heats every 20 minutes. A maximum of 100 runners will compete in each heat, either as teams or individuals.

“Come prepared to have fun,” organizer Jay Wright advised competitors on the event website. “We have a ton of fun putting these events on and we do it so we can share this awesome sport with like-minded people like you that just want to have a totally epic day, smile, laugh, fall down a few times, get dirty, get back up and encourage those around you.”

The Junior Mulisha will begin at 12:15 p.m., and includes a modified 1km course with 12 obstacles. Parents are welcome to run alongside their kids, but are not obligated to do the obstacles. Unlike in the main race, no penalty will be imposed on junior racers for incomplete obstacles.

The event is free for spectators. Parking is available off the south end of Shawnigan Lake Road near the intersections with West Shawnigan Lake Road and Sooke Lake Road.
