L.A. Mud Run: Get Down and Dirty for the Troops!


APRIL 16 & 17, 2011

Run through the mud, mud and more mud in this military style 5K and 10K off-road trail course!

The Merrell Down & Dirty National Mud Run Series presented by Subaru will be kicking off its 2011 season right here in Los Angeles at the Castaic Lake State Recreation Area!

  • Race alongside local Military athletes!
  • There’s a new way to raise funds for Operation Gratitude and help send more care packages to the troops! Set up your own fundraising page and receive a free Operation Gratitude Dogtag!
  • Run in the world’s first Night Mud Run on April 16th! The Night Mud Run is limited to 1,000 registrants, so don’t wait to register and be a part of this one-of-a-kind event at nightfall!
  • Write letters of appreciation to our warriors currently deployed overseas, drop-off items for care packages, receive a great “technical race T-shirt” and enjoy a delicious post-race meal!
  • Military-style obstacles and challenges along the way, and of course — tons of mud and fun!

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
