Course Information

The event includes “The Original Mud Obstacle Course,” a footrace for 7 to 12 year olds with obstacles and mud pits as deep as 5 feet to run, jump and crawl through; ropes to swing on into mud, a slide to go down, and a tube dive that children dive through into a pit of mud.

The Extreme course will have similar obstacles, more challenging, for 13 years and older. The “Mini Mud Course” is for children 4 to 6 years old and “The Muddy Tot” will provide fun for children 1 to 3. Participants 6 and under can also participate in “Mudville” a “town” destined to provide a mighty muddy good time. The event also includes inflatable water slides, inflatable activities, food vendors, open play mud pits, sponsor area, and wash stations.

Child Pre-Registration

We’re excited to announce that again this year, Mighty Mud Mania will allow pre-registration for the child participants. How does it work? Go to our online registration site. You will need to sign up each child attending the event individually, and complete an online waiver for each of them. Then starting May 25th, you can go to one of our three packet pick up locations, show your receipt and receive your event packet including your child wristbands. Then just show up the day of the event with your wristbands on and jump into all the fun action. Pick up locations include McDowell Mountain Ranch Park, Chaparral Park and Eldorado Park.

All participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver form completed and signed by a legal guardian to participate in any of the Mighty Mud Mania activities. Each form can have up to 6 different participants. We highly recommend bringing a completed waiver form with you to the event to speed up the registration process.

Participants 18 and older attending the event will only need a waiver submitted if they plan on participating in the Extreme Course.

Adult Participant Waiver

Extreme Course Registration

The Extreme course is designed as a more challenging option in comparison to the Original course. The course is made up of 7 obstacles and is roughly 300 feet long. The Extreme course is recommended for ages 13 and older. Anyone 18 and older that plans to participate in the Extreme Course will need to pay a $10 fee to participate. Extreme course registration is open now. Day of registration will open at 7:00 am and will close at 11:30 a.m. (registration may close earlier due to the length of the extreme course line) and will be located at the registration booth.
