More than 3,000 runners participated in the first-ever Survival Race 5K mud run to take place at the 4-H Camp in Riverhead Saturday.

One event staffer said it was the largest number of participants in two years of running the race in various locations.

“It was good,” said William Waller of East Patchogue, who ran the race with his wife, Michelle, and friends. “I would do it again, but I would like the mud pit to be longer.”
