All proceeds directly support affordable, hands-on learning and fun at the Children's Museum of La Crosse. Minimum age 7 (with adult) or 10 (without adult).
We recommend you wear old, lightweight and comfortable clothing that adequately covers you. DO NOT wear thick cotton sweatpants. They will soak up a lot of water and get very heavy. Smooth nylon or spandex works well. Non-cotton ankle socks meant for running work best, as do ankle boots or running shoes with good tread. Crocs, sandals and slip-on shoes will not work. Some adventure runners duct tape their shoes to their feet, but if you do this, be careful not to tape too hard and cut off your circulation or tape over the tread on the soles. Anyone deemed inappropriately dressed or mannered by the Mud Marshalls may be asked to leave, with no refund of fees or donations. Bring clean clothes and shoes, a towel, and big trash bags. Leave all jewelry and valuables at home. We recommend that you wear waterproof sunblock. If you’re part of a team, you might want to all dress alike or similarly to add to the fun. Costumes, for individuals or teams, are welcome as long as you can safely move around. There will be an award for the best costume.
Volunteers will be staffing a bag check-in area for your clean clothes, car keys, and other basics in exchange for optional donations to help military families. We suggest you have your name and contact information somewhere in or on the bag. Do not wear or bring valuables. We will not be responsible for lost or stolen items.
There won’t be showers like you have at home, but there will be water (it may be cold).
Myrick Park’s restrooms will be open throughout the event.
Volunteer photographers from La Crosse Camera Club will be on and around the course to caption every muddy minute! A link to a photo sharing site will be e-mailed to participants after the event.
