Area churches are teaming up this weekend to present a 3.5-mile More Than Conquerors Mud Run at the I-80 Farms in Colfax.

The race, which starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, is based on the popular Warrior Dash. Participants can expect to get dirty, and will face obstacles throughout the event including scrambling over hay bales, leaping over fire and climbing under barbed wire. The course also will take participants across the Skunk River.

To register, visit Newton Church of The Way, Community Heights Alliance Church or Crossfit in Pella for more information.
