Mark your calendars and save the date. St. Cloud Police Department’s Robo Mud Run is returning in June.

The 10K run featuring more than 68 extreme obstacles is designed to physically and mentally test the limits of participants.

“We Dare to Care developed the Robo Mud Run obstacles, so that everyone of all fitness levels can enjoy it,” said St. Cloud Police Department’s Sergeant Frankie De La Rosa. “Fitness enthusiasts may challenge themselves in the obstacle containing the gym rings, which transition into a vertical pipe crossing 40 feet over water. Others may enjoy an extreme mud slide, or a 15-foot plunge into a pool of water from a platform.”

But don’t worry, it’s all for a good cause.

All proceeds from the Robo Mud Run benefit the “We Dare to Care 501(c)(3) Foundation” — a nonprofit established by members of St. Cloud’s Police Department to benefit local charities, police officers, firefighters and city of St. Cloud employees who are in need.

“We Dare to Care has consistently supported citizens and employees of the city of St. Cloud, whom were in need,” said De La Rosa. “One hundred percent of the funds raised by We Dare to Care are returned to those citizens, or employees in need.”

De La Rosa added that We Dare to Care has donated to patients in need of organs and cancer treatment, to citizens’ and employees’ children for Christmas gifts and more.

“Roughly, over $500,000 has been given back to support the community,” he said.

The event will be on June 29 at 7 a.m., at Peghorn Park (3001 17th St., St. Cloud). Note: The Robo Mud Run will happen in rain or shine. 

Tickets are $65. Government rate tickets are $49. Discounts are available for groups of six or more.
