The Gretna Gritty is Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's 8th annual 5k mud run with 20+ obstacles set in the beautiful, rugged terrain of the Mt. Gretna area. In our 8th running of this awesome event, participants can expect to encounter challenges of balance, brawn, bravery, buffoonery and more!  With hilly terrain, and challenges new and old - the Gritty has  something for everyone. Now in it's 7th running we will also host the "Nitty Gritty" kids (5-11 years old) fun run which gets kids in on the action with a 1.3 mile fun run. All Gritty and Nitty Gritty runners can expect lunch, medals, adventures, a sweet Gretna Gritty t-shirt, and memories to last a lifetime! 

We seek to have an AMAZING event with the BEST course around & Raise $50,000! All proceeds for this event, excluding the costs of participation, will go directly toward Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center's operations. After a challenging year of losses due to COVID 19, the Gretna Gritty is set to have an incredible impact for the ministry that happens at Gretna Glen. With your help, we can make this happen.

UPDATE - 3/15/2021: It is our joy that the Gretna Gritty is an outside experience, and this allows us to operate in as close to normal capacity as possible. In efforts to provide a safe event, we will ask you to wear face masks from your car, through the check in process, and to your start line. Once you have reached the start area and are beginning your event, you are welcome to remove your mask if you would like. We are still navigating what additional safety measures we will have in place for the Gritty in 2021, and will update that here.
