[ARCHIVED] Mud Run Returns


The Mud Run is back! The AJ Parks and Rec Team is excited to be live and in-person for our 8th Fit Families MUD RUN! Last year may have been mud-less (unless you created it in your own backyard!), but this year there will be no shortage on mud and plenty of obstacles to challenge everyone. Our Mud Run is unique from other themed races as it’s created for all family members to experience the obstacle craze together! From our youngest participant of 18 months to our oldest of 85 years, this is truly an event your family won’t want to miss.

The Fit Families Mud Run gives families an opportunity to participate in such an event without the high level dangers of the mainstream mud runs. The obstacles created for the Fit Families Mud Run are age-appropriate in their distances, challenges and safety; the obstacles were designed for maximum mud and minimum danger!

This year’s event will be on Saturday, Oct. 23, with the first wave starting at 9 a.m. Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your wave time as there is a short walk from the parking lot to the start line. This will also give you time to get checked in, take some pre-mud family photos and store your items at our staffed bag check area. Day of registration begins at 7:30 a.m. on-site at the Rodeo Grounds. Fee is $10 per person if registered before Oct. 1. Adult prices will increase to $20 on Oct. 1 and $25 on race day. Youth prices will remain $10.

The Healthy Mason Jar will have beverages and food items available for purchase beginning at 7:30 a.m. Whether you choose to fuel up prior to the run or relax with a bite afterwards, they’ve got you covered.
