We are beyond excited to open registration for the 10th Annual Gretna Gritty!
Join us for Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's 10th annual 5k mud run fundraiser with 20+ obstacles in the beautiful, rugged terrain of the Mt. Gretna area. In our 10th running of this fantastic event, participants can expect to encounter challenges of balance, brawn, bravery, buffoonery, and more! With hilly terrain and challenges new and old - the Gritty has something for everyone. This event allows you to challenge yourself as much as you want, so walking is also welcomed. In addition to the Gretna Gritty, we also host the "Nitty Gritty" kids (5-11 years old) fun run, which gets kids in on the action with a 1.3-mile fun run. All Gritty and Nitty Gritty runners can expect lunch, medals, adventures, a sweet Gretna Gritty t-shirt*, and memories to last a lifetime!
We plan to have an AMAZING event with the BEST course around & Raise $50,000! Proceeds for this event, excluding participation costs, will help us finally ELIMINATE the mortgage debt from 2005! When we started these Gretna Gritty events, we had over $690k to pay off, and now with the Gritty and the irreplaceable help of many other donors, Gretna Glen is ready to celebrate paying off this debt! We are so confident in our support of this event we are planning the 'burning' of the mortgage celebration for the same day.
*Participants registered prior to 4-29 will receive the t-shirt size ordered - participants registered on 4-29 or after will be able to choose from select sizes on a first come first serve basis.
