Are You Ready To "Stop, Drop & Mud?" Get Ready For May 13th!

Mountain Ranch, CA...What is the Stop, Drop & Mud? This race is designed to be a fitness challenge, pitting First Responders (Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement) and Military against the general public.  Show us what you’ve got! We are proud to be bringing a mud run to Mountain Ranch this year — the first of its kind!  We are planning on approximately 16 obstacles along the route that will range from fire fighter skills to strength and endurance tests. Participants will start and finish at the Mountain Ranch Park in the heart of Mountain Ranch.  All participants will receive a 2017 Stop, Drop & Mud shirt.





Participant are welcome to walk or run the course.  All obstacles are designed to be challenging but are accomplishable by people of all ages and abilities.

Obstacle Course

Obstacle course races have become one of the most popular events in the running world in the last five years. There are races out there that have you run through mud, bounce down slides or even get splattered with paint.  We wanted to have more of a fire fighter theme to this run.  The Stop, Drop & Mud Firefighter Challenge has several firefighter themed obstacles that give you a glance of the life of a firefighter.  You will battle through 16 different obstacles that will challenge your strength, stamina and endurance.

Runners will run the race in a wave format beginning at 10:00 a.m. and every 30 minutes thereafter.  All participants in the Stop, Drop & Mud will receive the 2017 race shirt.  This race is open to anyone age 13 and up.

Why Run it?

The Stop, Drop & Mud is hosted by the Central Calaveras Firefighters Association.  When you run in some of the larger obstacle races you are supporting a company that is hosting the race and then donating a very small percentage of the funds to some charity.  Our race is different.  Every single aspect of the race is planned, constructed and organized by our Volunteer Firefighters and Association members.  Countless hours are spent to get this race ready for our participants.

Financially every single dollar that is raised goes directly to supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue Protection District.  It is with fundraisers like this that allow the Association to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.

When you register for the Stop, Drop & Mud you are directly supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue.  With this in mind we want to say thank you to everyone who has presently signed up and to those considering signing up!

Where does my race registration fee go?

All registration fees and sponsorships will go directly to purchase new SCBA’s (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus) for the Central Calaveras Fire District.  Central Fire is currently using SCBA’s made in 2002 and Federal Law prohibits the use of SCBA’s more than 15 years old.  In June 2017 all 22 SCBA’s currently in use by Central Fire will no longer be usable.  It is fundraising events like the Stop, Drop & Mud 5K that allow us to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.

The Central Calaveras Firefighters Association is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Our tax ID # is 45-2853418.

Are you ready to Stop, Drop & Mud? Sign up here! Register


Event occurs on 05/13/2017 from 10:00 AM to .
