Run Amuck Nears Sellout with 3,000 Runners Slated for June 16 Event

Kids Run Amuck on MCB Quantico Already Filled to Capacity

QUANTICO, VA (May 25, 2012) - Run Amuck, a 3.5 mile mud and obstacle run on June 16 is open with only limited registration available at www.marinemarathon.com. Kids Run Amuck, geared for runners ages six to 10 years is now sold out of all available registration. 

Organized annually by the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), Run Amuck takes participants through a series of arduous obstacles, military PT exercises and descents into large mud pits throughout Quantico's hills and trails. This year's Run Amuck includes even more grubby mud, on-course misting stations and new obstacles to include the Ammo Can Carry, Berm Climb and Striking Shields. 
                        
Both events start and finish at Quantico's Barnett Field, located at 2073 Barnett Avenue, and run throughout Quantico streets and into the hills and trails adjacent to Butler Stadium. 

Kids Run Amuck is a one-mile run that includes hale bale jumps, belly crawl, rope climb, mesh tunnel crawl, cone slalom, mud pit and spuds buds hop!

"The MCM is pleased to offer even greater challenges for Run Amuck and Kids Run Amuck participants this year," says Rick Nealis, MCM Director. "Since the MCM Event Series began in 2008, the popularity of these running events has expanded beyond the Quantico gates and across the country, resulting in an annual sellout of Run Amuck entries." 

Run Amuck opening ceremonies begin on Barnett Field at 7:45 a.m., with the start of Kids Run Amuck at 8 a.m. Run Amuck runners will gather for the 8:30 a.m. start as 3,000 runners take off in thirty waves of 100 participants. 

All mud-encased Run Amuck participants will receive a watering down courtesy of the Quantico Fire Department's ladder truck, as well as a keepsake towel and commemorative coin from Warrior Chip after the Run Amuck finish. 

Media interested in covering the mud-covered participants and activities should contact Tami Faram, Marine Corps Marathon Public Relations Coordinator at tami.faram@usmc.mil or 703-432-1840. 

The 2012 MCM Event Series is sponsored by Brooks, Geico, Holiday Inn, Marine Federal Credit Union, MarathonFoto, USO-Metro, JK Moving Services, Mix 107.3 FM,  Michelob Ultra, Scion, VA Runner, MARSOC, Warrior Chip, Wiley X and Discovery Prince William County /Manassas, VA.  No federal or Marine Corps endorsement implied.
