PORON® Cushioning announces that it will be a proud partner of Camp Pendleton’s Word Famous®  Mud Run benefiting the Armed Services YMCA that will take place Saturday, June 16 at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base in California.

The run is held on a challenging 10k course with hills, tire obstacles, river crossings, two 5-foot walls with mud on both sides, tunnel crawl, slippery hill climb, and the final 30-foot mud pit.  The number one rule according to the event’s web site is to “Have fun!” 

The event on June 16th to benefit Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA,  is the last of five mud run races held on three consecutive weekends at Camp Pendleton.  The ASYMCA, which is located on the Camp Pendleton base, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the lives of military personnel and their family members in Spirit, Mind, and Body. 

In cooperation with the Base Commands, the ASYMCA offers programs and services that strengthen families and encourage individuals to achieve their fullest potential.

“The Mud Run is a great event that tests each contender’s strength, endurance and determination in a fun and enjoyable environment,” said Dave Sherman, New Business Development Manager, PORON Cushioning.  “We’re excited to take part in this unique opportunity, which also allows us to highlight a few of our PORON military brand partners such as Danner, Mechanix Wear, Original S.W.A.T. and many others.”

Over the past 20 years, the World Famous Mud Runs have established themselves as the best in the business.  All five races sell out weeks in advance, which in itself is a testament to the great time participants have.  For those who are not interested in getting down and dirty, there is no need to worry.  Spectators can watch the race and party with the competitors after at the Filthy Fun Fest, which will have live music, event souvenirs, food, drinks and much more.
