Lord's Gym Kids Mud Run 2019

The annual Lord’s Gym Kids Mud Run is FREE, and it’s taking over Oroville on Saturday, June 1, 2019!  The Kids Mud Run is a mile-long, obstacle course-style race for children ages 4-12. Kids will run, jump, swing and crawl through over 20+ exhilarating obstacles--not to mention mud!  The race is divided into three separate age groups (4-6, 7-9 & 10-12) with age-appropriate obstacles so that children can run together their friends and peers of the same age. This allows the race to be safe enough for little ones while also challenging the pre-teens. A special school competition, know as the “Superhero School Bell”, allows children to rack up points for their school by taking part and dressing up in their school’s colors.  

In between races kids, will enjoy Mud Fest with inflatables, food and carnival style attractions.  Mud Fest will be running 9am-3pm at an additional cost.
