"We moved to Oroville last year and this is the best family experience we’ve had so far! What an amazing free community event… Tons of wonderful volunteers, a massive obstacle course, activities, food, merchandise… From start to finish it was a spectacular experience."

"This is an amazing event for the young kids because it exposes them to experiences they would normally not get to experience in the current world. It challenges them to overcome their fear and get out of their comfort zone!" ~ Yelena

"We love finding fun, adventurous things for our kids to try, and it did not disappoint! Our daughter still talks about how much fun she had climbing over the tire walls and crawling through the muddy tunnels with me. It was great as a parent to see my daughter overcome challenges and grow in confidence. We're bringing the whole family again this year, we can't wait!" 

"Just want to say that it’s very rare to show up to an event and have my daughter cheered on and included just like all the other children in her heat. Her disability does not define her but rather makes her unique. Your event made her shine and I can’t say that about all the places we have been."

"This was our family's 4th year and we always had a blast! Love the family atmosphere and the fact that this is a free activity. We drive an hour to get there but it is always well worth the effort since we have a fun-filled day with great food as well!"

"We have competed four years in a row. We always look forward to June and the Kids Mud Run. All of the volunteers make it such a special event. We are so proud to live in a community that offers such valuable experiences for the children and the young at heart." ~ Angela

“It’s the coolest, funnest race! Better than any sport!” - 7 year old
