About the Event

Community EventFamily EventFundraiserVolunteer Event

The Gretna Gritty is Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's 9th annual 5k mud run fundraiser with 25+ obstacles set in the beautiful, rugged terrain of the Mt. Gretna area. In our 9th running of this awesome 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.

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 from 9am-12pm. All Gritty and Nitty Gritty runners can expect lunch, medals, adventures, a sweet Gretna Gritty t-shirt, and memories to last a lifetime! 

By clicking on the Registration link you will be redirected to our Runsignup page where registration and logistics are managed for this event. 


We need over 120 people on the day of the event to make it the best possible experience for all. We need help with every part of this awesome day from parking and registration to obstacles and food service.
