LODI — Delta College’s 3rd Annual Veterans Muddy Maul & Crawl, takes place on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 8:30 a.m., at Jessie’s Grove Winery, 1973 W. Turner Road in Lodi.

The Muddy Maul & Crawl features a demanding two-mile scenic vineyard obstacle course. Nine different “boot camp” style obstacles are featured per mile, followed by a big mud pit final obstacle. Along with individual races, a five person Team Division will be available. The competition will be followed by a barbecue and awards ceremony. This year, the event will also feature a “Family Fun Day” with vendor booths and a children’s activity area.

Adults may pre-register for the Muddy Maul & Crawl for $50. The fee is $60 on race day. Teams may register for $250. Kids eight and under may register for the “Mud Crawl” only on race day for $15.
