Nearly 700 participants turned out to run the U.S. Marine Corps Detachment’s 17th annual Volkslauf Mud Run on Saturday, which, for the first time, started at the traditional end of the race near Happy Hollow Recreation Area and ended at what is usually the starting point at the top of Car Wash Hill.
