Date: April 23rd 2016. Time: 8am (1st Adult Heat)/2pm (1st Kids Heat) Location: Directly behind Feather Falls Lodge (3 Alverda Drive, Oroville, CA). 

Whether you're racing with your friends, representing a local business in the Baddest Business Bell, taking your kids to the Kids Mud Run or just coming along for the ride, here's what you need to know.

The adult race

This year's adult course is around 5 miles long and encompasses 20 obstacles involving running, jumping, climbing, crawling, mud, water and ice. The course is designed to be both challenging for more competitive racers and manageable for complete beginners. Providing you can walk 5 miles and you don't mind getting wet and muddy, you can race!

Tickets are cheaper the earlier you register. We also have a team discount for groups of 5 or more, so it's a good idea to persuade others to race with you!

the baddest business bell

Each year, local businesses go head to head in the Lord's Gym Mud Run Business Bell to see who will be crowned that year's 'baddest business'. In 2015, Chico's Costco beat Oroville's Taco Bell by a narrow margin to take home the coveted business bell trophy. This year teams from 30 businesses and four different cities are hoping to deny them the title.

the kids mud run

We've completely redesigned our Kids Mud Run for 2016 with 12 all-new obstacles just for children ages 4-12. The kids race takes place at the same location but on a separate, purpose-built course. Heats are based on age and start at 2pm. The best (and cheapest) way to get tickets is to register your kids online, however we will sell walk-up tickets on the day for $25.

for families and spectators

If you come down to watch the race, you'll find everything you need for a great day out including music, food and carnival-style attractions for kids including bounces houses and a tug of war. You'll have access to the start and finish lines for both the adult and kids races so you can cheer for friends and family, plus we've created a special spectator zone so you can watch the racers tackle some of the most interesting obstacles! 

how to register

You can register online to take part in both the adult race and kids race or visit the Lord's Gym on 2120 Bird Street, Oroville to register on paper. Spectators enter for free!
