Do you have what it takes to be MARION MADE?
• 3-4 Miles
• 34 Obstacles
• 1 Amazing Non-Profit Mud Run

Charity Challenge + Military + OCR + Community = Fun!


Only $39.95


Welcome to The Marion Made Challenge! This very first Marion Military Obstacle Course Race will be a benefit race in support of three student/cadet organizations. All proceeds benefit the Corps of Cadets!

Zig-zag across the beautiful 175-year-old MMI campus for a 3-4 mile race with over 30 obstacles (and maybe some sticky, red mud) that weave throughout historical landmarks! Run, crawl, climb, push, pull and have a great time helping a good cause! Try out our military-grade obstacle course, inspired by BUDS. Bring the whole family to climb and rappel down our 45-foot rock climbing wall and tower! Kids are welcome and encouraged to come! Plenty of food and fun will be had. And, it's all benefitting three cadet clubs from Marion Military Institute--The Swamp Foxes (our "special ops" club, which specializes in air assaults, MOUT, rappelling, weapons and equipment familiarization), Murfee's Mudders (our obstacle course racing club), and The Gaelic Club, which takes a group of students every year to Ireland for a study abroad summer! 100% of the proceeds go to these cadet clubs!

Bring your tents and lawn chairs to watch the race up close and right in the middle of the action! And, come hungry! We have food vendors from the best spots in Alabama. All proceeds from concessions benefit the Corps of Cadets.  The Concessions will be located in the Golf Pro Shop below the Excess House (Registration site). 

Bring the whole family, pets included. We will have the rappel and rock climbing tower open to the public!

Make a day of it! Following the race, the Marion Military Institute Flying Tigers will host the 10th Annual Vaiden Field Fly-In. See War Birds, Vintage, Homebuilt and Experimental Aircraft! This event is FREE.
