3rd annual Ninilchik Clam Scramble 5k Mud Run is scheduled for solstice weekend again in 2017. Come spend an afternoon with us in Ninilchik celebrating in the salty sea, sand with maybe a little sunshine!
Saturday, June 24th, we’ll start at Deep Creek Beach Campground for registration (8:45-9:45am) and the race begins at 10:00 am sharp. The course starts on the sandy beachside of Deep Creek and quickly plunges you (knee high) into the chilly waters where the Deep Creek River meets the sea. Run the rocky shoreline of Cook Inlet to meet obstacles like the Ring-Around-the-Rocks, the Mud-Crawl and more. Again, into the frigid water at Ninilchik River, on past the Ninilchik Harbor and back through Ninilchik Village. Lastly, you’ll climb that pesky little “Staircase to Glory” to the finish line at Ninilchik View State Park Campground. Run, walk or crawl, all ages and levels of competition will find it challenging, rewarding and packed full of fun!
