On Saturday, July 28, the Mud Ninja Extreme Challenge rallies participants to navigate a 5K course impeded by 21 muddy obstacles made all the more treacherous by the mischievous spectators who join in the fun by launching waterlogged Nerf balls at the contestants. The Little Mud Ninja Challenge, meanwhile, pits little ones against balance beams, rope hangs, mud slides, and other obstacles inspired by the adult event. Following the race, all in attendance are invited to an after-party with food, a complimentary beer (for participants aged 21 and older), and a live cover band. After the victory ceremony, entrants head home with a Mud Ninja T-shirt and a ninja star medallion (made out of leather for youth participants). Costumes are encouraged. Adult waves take off from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Little Mud Ninja Challenge participants hit the trails from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Prices vary by registration date.
Lurking in the darkness of moisture-saturated topsoil, the mud ninja challenges only the toughest competitors to attempt his 5K obstacle-laden course. Serving the dual purpose of allowing entrants to live out their reality-show fantasies while helping to raise money for Autism Speaks, the Mud Ninja race requires participants to crawl through mud pits covered with barbed wire and scale steep walls before leaping onto multiple mounds that punish imbalanced racers with a splash. Throughout the 5K course, contestants splat into mud pits in front of hundreds of spectators. The Little Mud Ninja race scales the course for younger racers, and an after-party engages all with music and a plethora of food vendors.
