  • Avie's Place Special Needs Heat: For more information, visit our FAQ Page.

  • Pre-Race Registration: This is a quick process of signing the Liability Waiver Form and picking up the race wristband. To avoid long lines, we HIGHLY recommend that you complete this process on Friday before the event between 9 AM and 7 PM at the Lord's Gym Oroville (located at 2120 Bird Street, Oroville, CA). If you cannot make it on Friday, you may complete it on Race Day at the Registration Area on the course; however, you will be required to arrive 1 hour before your child's heat start time. 

  • Liability Waiver Form: ONLY parents or legal guardians may sign the Liability Waiver Form for their child(ren). It CANNOT be signed by any other family member or family friend. Children will NOT be allowed to participate in the Kids Mud Run without Liability Waiver Forms signed by their parents or legal guardians. Copies of the Liability Waiver will be made available at the Pre-Race Registration. If a parent or guardian cannot make it to the Pre-Race Registration, a copy of the Liability Waiver Form can be downloaded and signed by them ahead of time, and someone else can attend the Pre-Race Registration on their behalf with the signed copy of the waiver form. Please note that if a parent or guardian is running with a child in the Family Heat, Special Needs Heat or in the Ages 4-6 Heat, they must also sign their own copy of the Liability Waiver Form and get their own Race Wristband. 

  • Merchandise: You can pre-order Kids Mud Run shirts and shorts when you complete the online registration form, and pick the items up at Pre-Race Registration. There are also shirts and shorts available for purchase on Race Day; however, we will only have limited quantities available for each size, so we recommend that you pre-order online. 

  • Other Attractions: We have attractions such as inflatables, sledding, and more at a small cost for your children to enjoy. All proceeds will go toward supporting our nonprofit mission. We also have family games and a talent show that are free of charge!  

  • Spectator Trail: We have a spectator trail next to the Kids Mud Run course where you can watch your children and cheer them on as they run and conquer the obstacles.
