Fitness should be fun!  Join us for our inaugural Dirty Kid Obstacle Race.  Youth ages 6-15 will race ½ +- mile over 10-15 obstacles, including MUD.  After the race have some fun at the Adventure Playground, and from 12pm-4pm the entire Maple campus will be turned into a fun zone for the annual Community Fun Day, a free event.

Obstacles can vary. There will be over, under, carry, crawl and of course mud. Obstacles will not have a high degree of difficulty. Look for our special sponsors like the Sacramento Police Department who may have youth carrying police shields. Youth will run in “waves” of 6-12 persons. Course will be within and behind the Adventure Playground. The permanent Obstacle Course within the Playground will NOT be a part of the course. Starting times will be approximately 2-10 minutes per wave (passing will happen). Wave times will be posted below by Oct. 10. Assigned time slots will be within a 30 minute time frame. Awards ceremony will be about 15 minutes after the final racer.

Those registering early will be guaranteed a t-shirt (you get to make it!).
