2019 Holiday Valley Mudslide

Yes, you'll get muddy, yes there is running, yes there are 11 obstacles but NO fire, NO barbed wire and NO electric shocks!The 3.5 mile course starts at the top of the mountain at Spruce Lake (ride up on a chairlift) and runs along the ridgeline then down the hill. The 5.4 mile course adds a bit of uphill running, just in case you're feeling especially tough. 

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Jim Kelly’s Hunter's Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to giving hope through education and awareness, research, and family care for Krabbe, Leukodystrophies, and Newborn Screening.

There is a max of 1200 competitors. All competitors will receive a goody bag, a t-shirt and a super cool finisher's medal plus a hot dog or pulled pork sandwich and 2 beers (or beverages). Children as young as 7 years old can run on the 3.5 mile course, but they must be accompanied by an adult. The Kids' Race is $10 (age 3 to 12) includes a t-shirt, register for kids online or at the Yodeler Deck on the day of the race.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
