Not afraid of getting a little dirty for a good cause?

More than 1,500 people have already registered for the second annual Mud Run on Saturday at JCB's campus. It's a 4.3 miles of mud, dirt and water.

This year, they have doubled the fun with more than 20 obstacles that include hills, logs and a water slide that plunges people into a big pool of muddy water. There are two- and six-person teams in this year's competition. After the run, there's a party.

"There's so much to love about hosting the Mud Run. For me, my favorite part about it is that it brings us together with the community. It shows them a little bit about what our machine actually do, which is work in the mud and move the earth, and it's all for a great cause so it's a win-win," said Karen Guinn, general manager of marketing and communication at JCB. 

Proceeds from the JCB Mud Run will benefit the Lady Bambford Center, an early childhood education center for low-income families and those with learning disabilities.

To register or view the JCB Mud Run course and schedule go to the event website. Online registration closes Wednesday night. There is no race day registration.
