If you have been looking for a way to get the entire family active, we think we may have found the perfect event for you.

Muddy Kids is coming to the Lewiston area on Saturday, June 17th.


The Rise Of The Fun Runs & Obstacle Courses

Over the last decade, we have seen fun athletic events popping up everywhere.  More than just people running a race, these events were envisioned as a way to make getting active fun.

First, there were color runs and color dashes.  Basically, participants run the course and, periodically, they encounter color stations.  At these stations, they get covered with colored powder that, thanks to their sweat, sticks to them.

More recently, we started to see obstacle course events happening all over the country.  Instead of just running a course, these events featured people tackling obstacles.


What Is Muddy Kids?

After seeing how successful the adult obstacle course runs are, it only makes sense that they would create a kids version of these events.

The Maine running of Muddy Kids will be held at 695 Woodman Hill Road in Minot.  The event will take place on June 17th.

One of the best things about this particular event is that it is really geared toward the entire family.  It is meant to be enjoyed by even the smallest elementary kids, as well as the teens, and even mom and dad.

The website explains the event like this:

Muddy Kids is a 1.5–2.2 mile adventure event series for families and kids ages 5–15, with fun and challenging obstacles, mud, and entertainment for the whole family.
We don’t focus on the fastest times or competitions; we focus on fun, so be prepared to run, walk, crawl, climb, slide, balance, and laugh your way along our course for an amazing muddy day out.  Muddy Kids is the perfect event to reconnect, strengthen relationships, have fun, get active, get muddy, and bond as a family!

Tickets for the event start at $40.  Get all the details HERE
