Centennial principal issues Lucky Mudder challenge to area high schools
Centennial High School’s new principal Leigh Webb is putting together a team of faculty and staff to compete in the first annual Lucky Mudder and is challenging other area high schools to do the same.
The Lucky Mudder, a 5K run for all ages that will be held on Centennial’s cross country course March 16, is considered a mud run with water, mud and a variety of obstacles that runners must navigate over, under or through.
“March and April are months of Williamson County’s ‘A Healthier You’ fitness challenge and walking competition, so the timing is perfect for some friendly competition that involves fitness between schools,” said Webb. “I’m excited to be part of an event that benefits Centennial and our students and also creates a unique new race for the running community in Middle Tennessee.”
Webb, a former basketball player at Bethel University, has been running 5K races and half-marathons for nearly a decade.
The Lucky Mudder is slated for Saturday, March 16, as a St. Patrick’s Day weekend run and will serve as a fundraiser for Centennial’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Funds raised through the Lucky Mudder will help cover training-related costs and replace equipment such as high jump landing foam and pole vault equipment.
Registration for the Lucky Mudder is available online at www.luckymudderrace.com or at the school’s front office at 5050 Mallory Lane in Franklin. After March 10 all registration must be done onsite. The current registration price of $65 per runner will increase to $75 on March 10. The event is open to runners of all ages - individuals and teams are encouraged to participate.
