Great Mud Run

Are you ready to take on the mud? Do you have the grit to finish the course? 

Inspired by the Tough Mudder, American Ninja Warrior, and the Warrior Dash, Glencoe Park District is proud to bring an obstacle race to Watts Park on September 16.  But instead of challenging adults, The Great Mud Run is designed for kids!  Kids ages 7-14 will put their physical stamina to the test as they race to complete all twelve obstacles. Participants will run, jump, climb, and crawl through the challenges on the 2-kilometer course (approximately 1.25 miles).

The race will have three heats, divided by

age groups (ages 12-14 will start at 9 am; ages 9-11 will begin at 9:30 am; ages 7-8 will start at 10 am).

Registration is now open for the Great Mud Run, which is co-sponsored by the Grand Food Center, AltaManu, MB Financial Bank, and GJHP. The Early Bird Registration rate, available through August 15, is $25 per participant. The regular registration fee is $30. Race day registration is available for $35 per participant. Everyone who finishes the race will get a t-shirt and a medal.
