HOISINGTON — Engines will once again roar as drivers try to drive through the mud at the fourth annual Mud Run at 1 p.m. on June 1 in Hoisington, south of the railroad track on the east side of U.S. 281. It will be held in conjunction with the Kansas Mud Racing Organization.
“It will be a fun and mud slinging  event for the entire family,” said Stacey Bressler, director of Hoisington Chamber of Commerce.
The gate fee is $10, with children 6-12 at $5,  and those 5 and under free. There will be concessions and a beer garden.
Proceeds will benefit the Hoisington Ministerial Association and Hoisington Chamber of Commerce activities.
The cost to participate is $25 for trucks and the registration closes at noon. The cost for all terrain vehicle participants is $15. There is no re-run option in any category. Cash prizes and trophies will be awarded.
There will be two separate pits – one for ATVs and the other for vehicles. Except for the stock classes, which are street driven vehicles, the other classes are required to wear a fire suit. All classes are required to have a fire extinguisher within reach inside the cabin.
All drivers must have a valid license and be at least 14 years old to compete.
All vehicles participating will be inspected and must have a hitching point. All participants will be required to wear helmets and use a seat belt. All drivers of the ATVs must demonstrate that they can operate the machine in a safe manner. No open footwear or shorts are allowed.
And for those whose vehicles can’t make it through the mud, a group from Hoisington will be official pullers.
The KMRO holds races from May through Oct. 1. They will hold 15 or so events this year in Kansas, Oklahoma or Colorado.
