Fort Mill Mudders invites new members

Fort Mill resident Rod Imhoff has formed the Fort Mill Mudders club to give local athletes an opportunity to meet new challenges.

“Mud” refers to a variety of obstacle races.

“The mud competitions are about challenging yourself regardless of your fitness or experience background,” Imhoff said. “They are designed to be challenging at multiple levels.”

The Fort Mill Mudders club is designed for anyone who has completed or is considering doing a mud run. Members will train and compete together.
