The Muddler (Dayton, VA) -- In Partnership with the Harrisonburg Police Foundation--CANCELLED @ Dove Park | Dayton | Virginia | United States

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Muddler – Dayton, VA 2020 Cancelled!

Out of concern for public health and safety, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Muddler.

We know that participants, teams, and spectators have been looking forward to training and experiencing this tremendously fun and challenging event together.

Unfortunately, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to rise in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County area and we don’t know what the next two months will bring. This event involves many people in very close contact. Social distancing would be impossible. We were at the point of having to make a decision and we made it with public safety in mind.

People who have already registered will be refunded directly through the RunSignup App within the coming weeks.

In the meantime, please support this year’s partners and beneficiaries by donating directly to: Harrisonburg Police Foundation and the Bridgewater Fire Department,, if you are able. And, please support the Dayton Police Department and all the businesses in Dayton!

Follow our Town’s website and Facebook pages for future announcements regarding plans for 2021.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you next year!
