About:

The Gretna Gritty is celebrating 5 years of muddy fun! This year we plan to have more runners than ever and raise $50,000 for Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center - God's Place Apart, Transforming Lives!  NEW IN 2017 - 50% of our proceeds will be donated towards Gretna Glen's NEW BATHHOUSE!  The other 50% will continue to be donated toward our Pathways to the Future Finance Initiative. With competitive, non competitive, and children's options there is something for everyone.  Info is online at www.gretnaglen.org/gritty.  Sign up today!

Competitive and Non-Competitive:

Competitive waves will begin at 8:00 AM and run every 10 minutes until 8:30 - all Competitive runners will be chip timed by professionals from PA Runners.  Competitive runners are expected to do obstacles to completion OR finish a set amount of burpees.  

Non-competitive waves will begin at 9:00 and run through 1:00 PM (final start).  These waves are all the mess with half the stress- no need to finish every obstacle and walking is welcome!  This year we will be clearing the Gretna Gritty course at 2:30 PM - so if you will need more than 1.5 hours to finish - please choose an earlier wave.

*The Walk-A-Thon option has not been discontinued, but absorbed into the non-comp. option.  If you just want to walk the course and go beside the obstacles - that is A-OKAY!  If you decide to get muddy - you're covered there also.

Teams: 

Competitive teams:  These teams are 4 people - no more/ no less.  When you create a competitive team you are guaranteed the 4 spots you need.  If your team doesn't fill up you will just run as individuals.

Non-competitive teams:  We love our big non-competitive teams - thank you team leaders! These teams can be as large as you want but please pay close attention to the registration limits and choose a wave with enough spots for your team.  Also it is best to create your team and have everyone sign up within a short period of time to be sure you've all registered together.  If you have any complications feel free to e-mail gritty@gretnaglen.org.

 Nitty Gritty:

In it's 4th year - the Nitty Gritty is a 1 mile kids obstacle run for kids 5-11 years old.  Show up anytime between 10 am and 1 pm for 10+ obstacles worth of mud and fun! Odds are - your child will want to run it more than once!

*Parents may run alongside their kids - but they may not participate in the obstacles.

*Obstacles are supervised - trail is monitored.

*Multiple laps are allowed - but our staff reserve the right to ask a child to be done if they seem too tired, or overstimulated for their own safety.

You will receive confirmation e-mails when you register with some of the details - but we won't send out the final parking and logistical update until 1 week before the event.  Check back at www.gretnaglen.org/gritty for the most up to date info.
