Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Jail Break Mud Challenge
Are you brave enough to take Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Jail Break Mud Challenge? The course is designed to be the most grueling jailbreak obstacle course in the Southeast, testing your ability to run, climb, jump, crawl and muscle your way through the most extreme Mud Run. Be ready to conquer whatever obstacles get in your way and test your toughness, strength, stamina, fitness and mental determination with five miles of tough terrain and 50 obstacles. Go through individually or tethered to three friends. The jailbreak mud challenge is a five-mile obstacle/mud run hybrid, winding through heavily wooded terrain, with swampy mud around every turn. They won’t let anyone under 17 go through the course without permission from their parents. The Mud Challenge benefits the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes.
