Course Description:

The Heroes Mud run is a 5K (3.1 mile +/-) run over cross-country terrain. Along the way there are over 12 different obstacles to overcome and maneuver and lots and lots of mud. There are combinations of man-made and natural obstacles. Man-made obstacles are built by master-craftsman and include jump walls of varying height, tires to step through, ramps to climb up and over, cargo nets to climb and…wait…we can’t tell you everything. Oh, we will mention there’s mud.

Our Little Heroes Kid’s Course is just a “Little” version of the fun. Registration is $15 per child either online or the day of the event at the Registration Tent. Designed for the “average” 8 Year Old…the race can accommodate ages 4-13. It contains 6-8 obstacles, none of which require swimming or any height of note. It is approximately 2k and parents are welcome to run alongside their children. However, our obstacles are not built for adults, you will not be able to complete the obstacles but you can be there to aide your child. Volunteers will assist when needed. There are no winner placings…everyone is a winner for competing and not getting in trouble for being muddy. Please note that there are only finisher dog tags for the kids registered for the run, not the parents assisting the children. Children will receive a t-shirt, goodie bag and they are welcome to clean up in wash area after their race. Kid’s obstacles are not available for practice or use prior to or after the event. The race is not timed. Each participant may only run the Little Heroes Kid’s Course one time.

Aid Stations:

There are at least 3 Water/First Aid Stations along the course. These stations will be marked with a red cross or “First Aid / Water.”
