The Clay County Mud Runners hosted Mud Run 6 on Saturday, Nov. 7. Hundreds came from all over the state to take part in this growing event. With social distancing practices enforced and masks recommended, COVID didn’t stop these riders from having some muddy fun.
The proceeds from this event was used to benefit the family on Andrea Holcomb, local resident who recently lost her long battle with cancer, and others in need. New coats were taken in place of the $25 vehicle entry fee, as well, to help those Clay County children in need of warm winter coats for the upcoming winter.
Riders enjoyed the sights of Clay County, got dirty, and filled their bellies with a meal provided by the Clay County High School Band.
The Clay County Mud Runners would like to thank all those who attended, the JG Bradley Campground for accommodating their staff and guests, Clay County Little League for the use of their parking lot, Judith Taylor and the CCHS Band Boosters for feeding everyone, The Elk River Inn, all the vendors, local Clay County businesses for having their shelves stocked, local restaurants for feeding everyone coming through town, and especially all the Mud Runners staff and supporters for their endless hours of hard work to help the community in times of need.
