It’s time to show your stuff! If you’re a runner, athlete or 5K enthusiast who loves the challenge of a great race, then you won’t want to miss Mud-Stash, Perfect North Slopes’ popular adventure race and mud run that will take place at the Lawrenceburg-area ski property at the end of next month.
Scheduled for Sat., May 30, the event will feature two race options, including the Mud-Stash (between 4-5 miles), and Mini Mud-Stash (approximately 1.5-mile), with obstacles ranging from simple hill climbs and mud-crawls to wall rappels, swinging bridge, “lily pad” water crossing and more. As in years past, participants should arrive ready to get dirty, with themed costumes and group participation welcomed and encouraged.
This year’s Mud-Stash events will once again feature music, food service, and beverages, and since spectators are admitted free of charge, you can invite your friends and family to come cheer you on. Upon completion, all Mud-Stash participants will receive a medal in addition to other perks. Finally, mark your calendar for the fall, since an additional Mud-Stash has been scheduled for Sat., September 12.

One of Southeast Indiana’s greatest cultural attractions opens this week for the 2015 season! Hillforest Victorian House Museum, the gracious Italianate mansion overlooking historic downtown Aurora, officially opens to visitors April 1 and will remain open through the end of December.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a National Historic Landmark, Hillforest is one of Aurora’s best-known historic buildings and is renowned for its classic architecture and dignified presence.
Operated by the non-profit Hillforest Historical Foundation, the mansion is a model of Victorian splendor, reflecting the way it might have looked in the mid-to-late-nineteenth century when it was occupied by the Gaffs, a locally prominent family. It is open for tours from 1-5pm every day with the exception of Mondays and major holidays.
The historic mansion, which is decorated in period style and has been featured in the past on HGTV, will host a variety of unique exhibitions and special events throughout the coming year, including "Focus on the Family," a special exhibit in which photographs and personal belongings of the Gaff Family will be displayed.
For more information on visiting Hillforest – including a list of the museum’s 2015 Calendar of Events – contact Hillforest at 812-926-0087, visit www.hillforest.org, or become a fan of the museum on Facebook.
