Childrenz Challenge by the Numbers

Share this News Article

Childrenz Challenge is a fun fitness run for kids age 4-13. Similar to mud runs, Childrenz Challenge is a mud-filled obstacle course designed specifically for kids (adults can’t have all the fun).

In 2016, more than 2,200 kids climbed, crawled, and ran their way through the course to reach the finish line! The kids came from over 300 cities and 30 counties.

The race is like a giant jungle gym, full of the most fun obstacles you could imagine. It takes more than 3,000 feet of lumber to build the barriers, balance beams, climbing walls, ladders, and cargo net crawls.

Over 2,000 feet of fire hose is used to pour 40,000 gallons of water across the 1.5 mile and 2 mile courses to create the mud pits, giant slip and slide, mud mounds, and so much more!

0 reported injuries – EVER!

113 volunteers and 1,200 hours of work make this unforgettable event possible.
