Organizers said the two races, Run Amuck and Kids Run Amuck, were sold out for Saturday morning. About 3,300 runners were signed up to participate.

The races involved running over obstacles and through mud pits. Everyone who was dirty gets watered down for free.

Children ages 5 through 9 participated in the one-mile Kids Run Amuck race.
