In 2010, a member of the Winston-Salem, NC Marine Corps League #1075, brought a vision to the Detachment…Let’s do a mud run to raise money for our Detachment to support other programs. The dream came alive! On June 4, 2022, the 12th annual Percy John Fulton Marine Corps League Mud Run was held at the Jomeokee Park and Camp Ground in Pinnacle, NC. The 5K course consisted of over 15 obstacles that included: 4 mud pits, ice hole pit, Ho Chi Minh Trail, Mount Suribachi rope climb/walk of shame, slip & slide, logs and tires, meat grinder, wooden walls and “A” frames, cargo net climb and grenade throw. During the 6 hour event, 734 runners and “courtesy registrants” took part. Participates came from all across the US to run the event and ages ran from 5 (Pollywog’s) to 79.
Funds generated from the Mud Run are used to support: Wounded Warrior Battalion East/Semper Fi-America’s Fund, located at Camp Lejeune, NC., Toys for Tots, Veterans Helping Veterans Heal, Young Marines Youth Program, NC State Veterans Home in Salisbury, NC., Wreaths Across America, the Hero Center and others.
