"We moved to Oroville last year and this 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."
"Absolutely amazing. The course was perfect for my 4 & 6 year olds. It challenged them but was also so much fun for them. They learned how to push through obstacles, problem solve, & discovered an interest in running challenges that they want to take part in again."
"We were very excited when we found out that the Lord's Gym Kids Mud Run was free. We love finding fun, adventurous things for our kids to try, and it did not disappoint! Our daughter Jovie was just old enough to run the course, and I was even encouraged to run with her. She still talks about how much fun she had climbing over the tire walls and crawling through the muddy tunnels with me. When Jovie crossed the finish line and received her dog tag necklace, she felt so accomplished. 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."
“It’s the coolest, funnest race! Better than any sport!” - 7 year old
