The Kids’ Mad Mountain Mud Run will include muddy games for kids and adults of all ages. The youngest participants will enjoy painting with mud, finding worms in the mud and other creative muddy activities. Children can enjoy a 1-mile mud run, and even the parents can participate in activities like muddy tug-of-war.

This is a fun event for all, however, participation is limited in order to ensure the safety of children in the mud! Adults are welcome and do not have to purchase a ticket for the event. Only those pre-ordering tickets will have the opportunity to purchase food. Beer will also be available for purchase (cash only).

Tickets for the event are $30 per person for ages 2 -11. This includes a child’s T-shirt (if registered before May 1), a kids meal from Finish Line BBQ (hot dog/burger, fries, and drink), music throughout the event and muddy games and fun.

All participants must register prior to May 27 but participation is limited and may be cut off earlier. For additional information, call 828-697-8333 or register online at

The event is rain or shine, but in the case of thunder/lightning or other dangerous conditions, we will have to cancel the run. In case of cancellation, your event fee will become a tax-deductible donation to Hands On!, as there is no backup date for the event.
