Idaho State University's student government is pleased to announce the Second Annual Great Idaho State University Ambush, a 5k mud and obstacle team race. The event will be held Sept. 14 and early registration is due Aug. 31.

"We are really excited to be able to offer the second annual Great ISU Ambush. I think that is a great event for the students, the community and the region to come out and see what ISU has to offer," said Matt Bloxham, Idaho State University student body president. "Get ready to bare your claws and dirty your paws as you slosh through mud pits, hurdle hay walls, run through tires and trek over the rugged Red Hill Ridge trails on the ISU campus. It’s a bit challenging but it’s more fun than you can imagine."

The cost for early registration for four-member teams is $100 on or before Aug. 31. The late registration fee is $125 per team from Sept. 1 to Sept. 8. The race will begin at Bartz Field on the ISU Pocatello campus, near the new Miller Ranch Stadium. The course will feature 15 different obstacles and is designed to challenge participants’ skills.
