Muddy Trails Bash Fun Runs

Little Muddy Kids' One-Mile Fun Run


The Little Muddy Kids' Fun Run is an exciting opportunity for kids ages 5-12 to join in. This event offers 300 participants a one-mile fun run around the confines of the George Mitchell Nature Preserve beginning at the 5K and 10K start line. The Little Muddy Kids' Fun Run is a non-competitive event designed to promote fun and fitness for kids of all abilities. All participants will receive a finisher's medal at the finish line.

Much of the information is the same as the Muddy Trails race, such as registration, packet pick-up and the post race party. What is different about this non-competitive run is the route and race start time. 

Parent Information:
  • Parents can run with the child. 5K and 10K runners can use this as a warm-up!
  • Volunteers will be in designated shirts and will be positioned at the start and finish and running the race with your child. The Kids' Race coordinator will introduce volunteer runners during stretches from 2:45 to 2:55 p.m.
  • Please make sure to have a meeting place with your child at the finish line. They will be so excited to show your their medal, and can refuel at the Post-Race Party.
