MF Kidz is an opportunity for your 4 – 13 year old child to conquer Mud Factor just like Mom & Dad. They will experience the same Seriously Fun Obstacle Run (some of the largest obstacles will be scaled down in size) only in a shortened version, fast forwarding to the good parts! The course will be approximately 1 mile for the 4 – 8 year olds and 1.5 to 2 miles for the 9 – 13 year olds. Along with the same big smiles, MF Kidz will be shown the same respect – tattoo, bandana before the run, and the same achievement medal when they cross the finish line.
MF Kidz will run at the first wave of the day, so they will get to hit the obstacles before the adults muddy them up. The bigger MFers (ages 9 – 13) will start at the front of the wave. A few minutes later, the littler MFers (ages 4 – 8) will be unleashed! Parents will be encouraged to follow them alongside the course, especially for the younger MFers.
Is this a race or competition? Absolutely not. Mud Factor is “Seriously Fun” where participants go at their own pace and finish when they finish. The goal of MF Kidz is to increase your child’s confidence and motivate them to have fun the old fashioned way… outside playing!!!
Does a parent have to run alongside the MF Kidz? Parents of 4 – 8 year old children must run alongside the course near their children. They should not step onto the course itself unless assisting their child. This Seriously Fun Obstacle Run is meant to inspire confidence, independence and encourage kidz to accomplish something great on their own. Just as children will not be in the adult waves, adults will not be running "in" the kidz wave. Parents of 9 – 13 year olds are not required to be on the course to assist their child, but are welcome to be there.
As a parent, do I have to register as a participant? No. The MF Kidz’ wave is just for kidz. You only need to register your child. If you want to play in the mud too, you can register for an adult wave later in the day. Please visit our regular Sign Up Now page for adult waves.
How do I register? Click the Sign Up Now button… NOW!!!
How early should we arrive? 1 hour before the wave time.
Is there a discount for multiple children? No, our MF Kidz price is already super duper discounted.
What should my MF Kidz wear? Any athletic clothes work great. Your children will get very, very muddy. Shoes are required. No cleats, please.
Are spectators free? Yes. We’d love to see Grandma, Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles and Friends. Tell them to bring their smartphones and post the Seriously Fun MF Kidz to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. #mudfactor @mudfactor.
