The Infant Parent Center is hosting Mud Aide, the first mud run offered in El Dorado County on Saturday, March 1 at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville.
Mud Aide is a 1.6 mile obstacle course, an untimed, bring-the-whole-family type of mud run. After the event, participants can enjoy food, drinks, and music.
The first-ever Mud Aide is a perfect introduction to mud runs for runners or athletes wanting a training run. Mud Aide offers a fun opportunity for any local business, department, or school.
The course is built for safe, family-friendly, muddy fun. Along with the mud, participants will encounter obstacles such as walls, cargo nets, tubes, balance beams, and tires of all sizes which they will need to crawl through run over, flip and carry.
Ages 12 and over can participate in any “wave” during the day with special “family waves” offered for kids 6-11, accompanied by an adult. The Mini Muddies Pavilion with kids’ activities is available for the littlest ones, ages 0-5; entrance is free for any child with a registered mud run participant.
Race packets may be picked up on Friday, Feb. 28 at Sports Authority in Folsom from 3 to 7 p.m., or at the fairgrounds the day of the event. Last minute participants may register the day of the race up until 9 a.m., but only in person at the county fairgrounds’ Marshall Building.
Register online at runningguru.com/event/mudaide. All proceeds raised will benefit the Infant Parent Center’s programs and services.
