WATERVILLE, MAINE, March 2020 – Thomas College is set to host its annual Dirty Dog Mud Run on April 19 in Waterville. This family friend mud run is a 5K, 15-obstacle course challenge through the College and surrounding land, including our Sukeforth Family Trail System, to benefit Thomas College students through the department of recreation.

Our main sponsor of the Mud Run is Central Maine Motors/Central Maine Chevy.

“Central Maine Motors has been a proud sponsor of Thomas College’s Dirty Dog Mud Run from the start. We take pride in supporting our community. This event brings people together to have fun and we love being a part of it,” said Linanne Guance of Central Maine Motors.

The kids’ race, which takes place at noon on the day of the race, is again sponsored by New Balance.

“The Dirty Dog Run and Mud Pup Run tie-in closely with our focus on promoting healthy physical activity, nutrition, and healthier lifestyle choices for children, teens, and their families. A little bit of mud just adds to the fun!” says New Balance’s Kate Bartley. 

The event is open to all community members in a family-friendly atmosphere with 5K of mud, tire flips, wall climbing, cargo net climbing and pounds of mud. Create teams with friends or make it a personal challenge. Registration is available online at
