Serious Fun Mud Run
Jun 2 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Serious Fun Mud Run @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Join us on Sunday, June 2 for the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center’s 5th annual Serious Fun Mud Run! The Mud Run is a 1/4 mile marvelously messy obstacle course designed for kids 4+ and grown-ups to navigate pits, tunnels, waterfalls and other muddy challenges in an untimed race to the finish line!

Why mud? The Discovery Center believes in the importance of outdoor exploration and messy play for people of all ages. The Mud Run lets participants get into the kind of play kids (and former kids) don’t get often enough: the opportunity to touch, grab and roll around in oozy mud!

Mud Run registrations are $27 ($25 for Discovery Center members). Registrations before Friday, May 17 include a Mud Run t-shirt and swag bag. All proceeds from this event support the Discovery Center’s work to remove barriers to play and create rich, diverse museum experiences for every child.

There are several different times to run the course. Kids may run at 10 AM or 11 AM, families run at noon. You will choose a start time when you register.

The Serious Fun Mud Run is sponsored by FHLBank Topeka and Jamie Hornbaker, State Farm Agent.
