Walk, run, climb, carry, crawl, jump, roll, slide, wade, swim–whatever it takes! The third annual Big Earl’s Extreme Race takes place tomorrow in Watson. As a three-mile mud run with over fifteen challenging obstacles, Big Earl’s has become a popular area race for all, from coach potatoes to marathon runners. Waves run every fifteen minutes from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., and awards will be given to the top male and female participants.
All proceeds from the race will be donated to Ag in the Classroom, a program dedicated to incorporating food, nutrition, fiber and fuel into daily Effingham County classroom lessons and educating students on the role of agriculture in their lives.
If you don’t get the chance to participate this year, no worries! Spectators are welcome, and parking is free. Bring your lawn chairs to cheer on the runners as they trek through the course. Soda, water, beer and food will be available for purchase. Whether you’re racing or not, Big Earl’s Extreme Race is sure to be a fun, memorable time for all, benefiting a great cause.

Good luck to all 2015 participants, and don’t forget to boast, “Been there, conquered that!”
