For those who have ever harbored a fantasy of getting down and dirty in public, with knowns and unknowns, Saturday, Aug. 25, is the day for you and Mammoth Mountain is the place.

It is the Mammoth Mud Run—six kilometers of downright down-and-dirty, commencing on the hill in the morning and ending only when the last contestant gulps down his or her last throatful of pumice-laced mountain juice.

It is actually no joke. It is an endurance athletic event, as hyped by, among others, Deena Kastor, on her social media musings.

The “race,” as it were, is split into different levels.

California’s highest mud event (with a starting line at 8,500 feet) features a challenging 6k (approximately four miles), pockmarked with various obstacles, mud pits and a few undisclosed “surprises.”

The race categories are:
• 6K Individual
• 6K Male/Female Team (team of 4)
• 6K Co-Ed Team (team of 4)
• 1K Mini Mammoth Mud Run (ages 5-12)

Since online registration ended on Wednesday, the only way to get in on this event is by registering this evening (Friday) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. or tomorrow, Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
