    Our run is on a slope and although it shouldnt stay mucky when it's dry out, it will be awfully muddy when it rains. I'd like to put sand down but am thinking it will just wash down to the low area. Right?

    You could tier it with landscape timbers placed every few feet. Just use landscape fabric on the ground area to keep it from washing under the timberswhen it rains [​IMG]
