People from all around Kentucky participated in the first of five mud runs in the bluegrass sponsored by the Kentucky National Guard at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., March 2 braving freezing temperatures, snow, wind and of course...mud.

LEXINGTON, Ky.–The Kentucky National Guard was a premiere sponsor of Extreme Rampage at the Lexington Horse Park on March 2, 2013. Extreme Rampage created a 3-5 mile race on the horse park grounds amid water obstacles, earthen berms and man-made rope, plank and climbing obstacles throughout the course. Participants in groups of 200 or less started their run every half hour beginning at 8:00 am and ending at 7:30pm.

“It was a great turn out, despite the weather,” said Lt. Col. Kirk Hilbrecht, public affairs chief of the Kentucky National Guard. “The Kentucky Guard had a good team turn out as

well, besides being a sponsor and facilitator of an intense part of the course.”
