The Newcastle Racers are seeking runners for the Racer Run 2014 fundraiser.

Proceeds from the run benefit the Racers wrestling program, including grades seven through 12.

The course will have a series of challenges including three mud pits, logs floating in a creek that runners must maintain balance across, tire flips, climbing ropes and a spear throw challenge.

Mud run obstacle course races have become a growing fitness trend across the United States, with Oklahoma hosting 10 different mud run races between throughout the late spring and summer seasons, according to MudRunGuide.com.

Hale modeled The Racer Run based on Oklahoma City’s larger Ultimate Mud Warrior obstacle course race, which participants have called, “the best mud run ever,” according to its website.

Hale believes better funding for the wrestling team is essential to its success in competitions, he said.

“The football team will make it to the playoffs and the whole town goes crazy,” Hale said. “I want the community to recognize these boys … the wrestlers’ hard work. We can’t even always afford for everyone to have the same uniform.”

The Pacer’s own staff writer, Ryan Croft, will chronicle his participation in the event with a high-impact, high definition video camera strapped to his head.

Anyone interested in entering the race can visit newcastleracerun.com and use the promotional code, “racerrun14,” to receive $15 off the entry fee.
