Click to go to the web site for the TRI-CAP Mud Slinger Trail Run (13.1 Miles or 6K) in Ferdinand, Indiana

TRI-CAP’s 6th Annual Mud Slinger Trail Run will be a very challenging trail run for the entire family with two different races offering a 3.75 and 13.1 mile. Both races will start on the road for one mile and then you will hit the trails until you make a complete loop through the forest. On either of the trail courses, you will encounter some steep hills, water, roots, and maybe even some mud! All proceeds from this event benefit TRI-CAP programs and help in the “Race Against Poverty”. To learn more about community action and the TRI-CAP programs available, please visit TRI-CAP’s website at To learn more about the race or to register online, please go to:

As the race host, we hope you will come back and run in this event each year. Therefore for both races, as part of your registration, you will be receiving not the typical t-shirt but something better than expected commemorating the event featuring the logo above. We will also be giving an additional congratulation gift to all the half marathon finishers. Again, it will be very unique from what you normally see in most races. Awards will also be given: Top 5 Male & Female Runners Both Races. Following the race, warm food and hot chocolate will be provided for all participants.

Registrations will be accepted the day of the race, 40.00-6k and 60.00-13.1, but register early to secure a lower entry fee. There is no guarantee of receipt of a shirt for any registration received after 10/11/18 deadline and the registration fees go up to 35.00-6k and 55.00-13.1. Hope to see you there!
