WHERE DO THE PROCEEDS GO? A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Corona Pilot’s Association at the Corona Municipal Airport.  Funds will be used to make improvements to the airport property, facilities, and operations.

COURSE: You asked for the challenge, and you’ll get it!  IT changes every year!  The MACH 1 Mud Run is an approximate +5k course beginning and ending on the battle grounds of Corona Airport. The course will take you along grass and dirt trails where you will encounter professionally built obstacles and several huge mud pits. It will take everything you have to run, jump, climb, swing, crawl, or otherwise navigate your way to victory!  You will get wet and you will get muddy.  Water stations will be available along the course for refreshment.

AWARDS: Awards will be given to the top male and top female individual finishers and to the fastest overall team.  Trophies will be awarded in the festival area after the final wave is completed.  You must be present to receive your trophy.  Awards will not be mailed.

COSTUMES: We also encourage participants to dress up any way you wish.  Anything goes except nudity, profanity, or otherwise tasteless attire.  Please use your best judgment so we don’t have to.  Be creative, and you may be rewarded with prizes.
