Rock Solid Sports, producers of the June 16thand August 18th Rock Solid Mud Run at Raceway Park in Old Bridge, NJ, announce a partnership with CharityBets.com, an exciting new online fundraising platform where athletes collect performance-based donations for charity. With the recent addition of timing to Rock Solid Mud Run and the partnership with CharityBets, the challenging 5-mile, 30-obstacle mud run just got a little more competitive.

Participants in both Rock Solid Mud Runs may choose to place performance-based donations (“charitybets”) on their performance (i.e. I will complete the run in a certain amount of time, or I will finish in the top 25) during the events in order to raise funds for the Semper Fi Fund, the official beneficiary of the event, or another charity of their choosing. The concept is simple, the better an athlete performs, the more money raised.

Spectators are invited to charitybet as well.  They may bet on a specific athlete or they may place a blanket bet such as, to bet the first finisher will finish in less than 2 hours, or the first finisher of the August race will be faster than the first finisher of the June race.  Bets may be placed online at www.charitybets.com.

Individual athletes and teams of 3 or more may register for the June 16th or August 18th events online at www.RockSolidMudRun.com or may show up at Raceway Park in Old Bridge, NJ on June 16th and register the day of the mud run.
