This day of family friendly fun also includes a fun one mile course for the kids that starts after the adult race at JEB Little Creek and winds through miniature sand dunes, obstacles and mud pits before crossing at the main finish line where the adults finish their Mud Run. This course is full of sand, mud and a lot of fun!
All mini-mudders receive a medal as they cross the finish line. They also receive a t-shirt, and food and drinks at the beach party. There will be inflatables to play on before the race and for siblings to keep busy while they wait. Please do not let muddy children play on slides. Registration is capped at 400 participants, ages 5 through 12. There will be two waves of racers, 5 to 8 year olds and 9 to 12 year olds. Race begins at the conclusion of the adult race between 9:30am.
Just like the adults, the kids are welcome to attend the Expo the day before the race to pick up their shirt and bib and visit the vendor booths.
A child from each age group will be awarded for the fastest finish at the awards ceremony following the race.
The adult race is designed with BIG kids in mind. All teens ages 13 & older are allowed to participate with parental consent. Because of the nature of the course, we recommend teens under 18 run with a parent or other adult friend. We specifically design a 1 mile course that is suitable for children & are the only race around that includes a mini Mud for kids ages 5-12. Let your children shine in the 1 mile challenge!
Make sure you leave plenty of time to allow for waiting in line at the base gates, parking & walking to the race area. Traffic gets congested on race day!
Complete parking instructions with maps and base passes will be included in the runner's packets you receive at Package Pick-up. Your race bib & t-shirts will be at Package Pick-up as well.
Timing chips will be checked out and returned on race day.
For the security of all participants and guests, the base police will be enforcing a "no bag" rule at the Mud Run. No bags or back packs of any kind will be allowed. We are planning to have a clothes check in area where we can hold any personal belonging that you bring with you.
