GET Outside and move!
The Lord's Gym Kids Mud Run is a FREE outdoor mud obstacle course for children aged 4-17. There are 3 different courses for 3 age groups, and each includes between 13 and 27 obstacles that encourage runners to jump, climb, crawl and run in the mud.
Kids get to be kids at the Kids Mud Run, and they get to build confidence and perseverance as they overcome challenging obstacles and finish the race!

"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."
"Amazing mud run! My kids and family loved every minute!" - Kayla
"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."
"So much fun! We will definitely be back next year!" - Kelsey
"Kids Mud Run was such an amazing and fun experience for our whole family. Our children had a blast and all the volunteers were so encouraging and uplifting to the kids. We look forward to attending next year :" - Laura
“It’s the coolest, funnest race! Better than any sport!” - 7 year old
