Mud run expected to draw hundreds in New Salem
NEW SALEM, N.D. (AP) — A mud run is expected to draw hundreds of people for good, dirty fun in western North Dakota.
Medieval Rush will be held Saturday in New Salem. It’s billed as the longest mud run in North Dakota, at 3.2 miles (5.1 kilometers).
The event has a medieval theme and runs rain or shine.
Gates open under the big cow statue “Salem Sue” at 9 a.m. Opening ceremonies are set for at 11 a.m. This year’s event also will add a medieval dirt bike race through the mud.
Participants must be at least 14 years old.
The Bismarck Tribune reports about 700 people take part each year.
