Mud on the Mountain Update

As you know, in accordance with state guidelines, Seven Springs Mountain Resort’s nonessential facilities are closed through May 8. Mud on the Mountain, originally scheduled for May 9 had been postponed to June 6. For your safety and the safety of our employees we are postponing Mud on the Mountain to a new date of Saturday, September 5, 2020!

If you have already registered, we are offering you three choices:

  • Attend the race on September 5.
  • Move your registration to Mud on the Mountain next year (May 8, 2021)
  • Offer you a full refund.

As we are working with a skeleton crew here, please do not try to call us. We have set up a special email address Mud@7springs.com to allow us to serve you. Do nothing if you choose to attend in June, only reach out to us if you would like to move your registration to 2021 or request a refund. You can also transfer your registration to the 2021 Mud on the Mountain event online through your Active account before July 3 without fee.

We are optimistic and hopeful that if we all do our part by adhering to our federal, state and local government mandates, we will overcome this health crisis soon. We look forward to coming back stronger than ever and for you to be a part of it! Please stay safe and take care of yourself, your family and our community.
