(WMC-TV) – Do you like to get down and dirty? If so, a 5k mud run this weekend could be right up your alley.

LuvMud Island is a mix of a 5k, mud run, and music festival. It is a chance for you to stay healthy, get dirty, and support a great cause.

The event supports Habitat For Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to forming a supportive community around families who travel to the Mid-South to receive medical care for their children.

The event is coming up fast. It takes place this Saturday at 11:30 a.m. at Mud Island's Greenbelt Park.

It's not too late to register. Check-in begins at 11 a.m. Additional details on the race can be found at the LuvMud website.

Even if you aren't much of a runner, if you have kids or a pup, they can take part in the event as well. The kids' race starts at 1:15 p.m. and the dog lovers' race begins at 2 p.m.

An award ceremony will be held at 3 p.m.
