2018 EVENT DETAILS
Welcome to the 5th Annual Splat Jr. Obstacle Mud Run! Kids ages 4-15, the Splat challenge is all yours! Depending on your age, you will complete between .75 and 1.75 miles of obstacle course awesomeness including walls, tires, pipes and of course, MUD, and LOTS of it! This is a youth event, so the obstacles and entertainment will be family friendly. Splat is fun for individual kids, siblings or groups (sport teams, celebrating a birthday or any other group of kids who want to do something unique and memorable together). You are encouraged to make yourself stand out, wear a costume, paint your face or make a unique shirt. If you do dress up, please make sure you can safely run, crawl and jump in what you have on and that it won’t get in your way. Join us and show us what you’ve got!
The Splat! course and obstacles are designed to be age-appropriate in difficulty and distance. There are 8 waves at this year’s event, each having a 150-participant cap.Waves 6-7-8 (7-15-year-olds) are for families and groups with kids in more than one age group who want to run together. Please note that this is a longer course for the 7 and 8 year-olds than Waves 3, 4 and 5 will be.
