Races, Divisions, & Classes

The Muggy Buggy is a series of trail running races held at Minocqua Winter Park:

  • 5km Muggy Buggy Fun Run
  • 2.5 km Muggy Buggy Xtreme Mud Run

All participants running on their own two legs must be at least 5 years-old on Race Day.

Muggy Buggy 5k – 9:00 AM

The Muggy Buggy Fun Run 5K Run/Walk, is a soft surface trail run/walk through the rolling landscape around Squirrel Hill at Minocqua Winter Park.

The Muggy Buggy 5K has male and female divisions with 10-year age classes:

Muggy Buggy Xtreme – 10:30 AM

This race will include serious ups and downs, mud, creeks, ponds, and variety of obstacles over a 2.5km (1.5 mile) course. Despite it’s relatively speaking short distance, this will be a tough event – quite possibly the toughest event you’ll ever do under 3km!
