Stuhr’s Prairie Sludge Trudge Returns Saturday, August 8th

GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – All the mud, muck and mayhem of the Prairie Sludge Trudge, Stuhr Museum’s popular adventure run, returns on Saturday, August 8th. The race begins at 8 a.m. with the gates opening at 6:30.

Runners can choose a 5K or 10K run that throws them over hay bales, across the Wood River, through tall grass and wetlands and eventually over a giant pile of mud. Runners will be scratched up and covered in mud by the end, but will earn a sense of pride in enduring all the prairie has to offer. All proceeds from this run benefit Stuhr Museum and this year’s course features a different race course, a fun staging area and much more.

This is the fourth year for the event which drew over 400 runners last year and the course will feature new obstacles that will challenge runners and leave them exhausted at the end. This run is recommended for those 10 and up, though many families have run it together in previous years.

Same day registrations are accepted and are $40 for 5K runners and $45 for 10 K runners. The gates will open at 6:30 a.m. Pizza and drinks are provided for runners at the end of the race. For more information and photos of the event, log onto or call the museum at (308) 385-5316.
