MUDMAN© is managed by Graniteman Events, Inc. and is one of 6 events held throughout Minnesota.  These events include running events, adventure races, and triathlons.

At Graniteman Events, we choose to hire our volunteers by recruiting various community groups who would like to raise money for their group or cause.  Over the past 12 years, Graniteman Events has paid out well over $250,000 to local and regional community groups and non profits, and is looking forward to supporting your cause too!

There are various activities to volunteer for depending on the race and/or group.
~ Registration
~ Body Marking
~ Tear down
~ Handing out racers materials
~ Traffic, parking, and crowd Control
~ Staffing designated points along course to cheer and guide participants

If your group is interested in raising money by being a part of our Graniteman Support Crew, or If you have questions regarding volunteering, please send us an email!
