As you guys know, I have little Tough Mudders on my hands at home, 5 of them. I’m not kidding when I say this, they are – quite literally – kids that love to do obstacles and test their endurance and strength.
Well… I’m excited to share with them (and you!!) something totally cool for kids that are into having some obstacle and race fun!
Say hello to Mini Mudders!
“Mini Mudders,” are for those ages 7-12, and they can get involved in new custom courses at the 60+ Tough Mudder and Mudderella events in 2015! AMAZING, right?
Tough Mudder just launched a multi-territory partnership with one of the leading international soft drinks Companies, Britvic PLC, to jointly develop a custom event aimed at children aged 7-12.
The pioneering Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder obstacle courses will inspire the next generation to explore their adventurous sides and have fun together while experiencing the power of teamwork.
The cool thing is, which my kids will love, is that each course will run about a mile long, consisting of four laps around a loop featuring exhilarating new obstacles designed custom for children, including:
Tunnel of Terror: Who knows what’s inside as you slide up and through the darkened tunnels… Grab friends and climb under, over and through to the other side with your team!
Gooey Shoes: Get your shoes tied tight and take a shot to walk across a slimy slippery surface without slipping, sinking or sticking to the ground! Move quick or you’ll be stuck behind.
Secret Agent Squeeze: An international boy or girl of mystery? Sharpen your spy skills and get a super stretch to try and slip through the cracks of the ‘laser’ maze.
Mount Mud: Watched your parents on the big course and want to get in the Mud? Climb, slosh, slip, and squirm your way over the grand finale Mount Mud, featuring an exciting Fruit Shoot slide into the mud to claim your headband after finishing the course.
We’re such a Tough Mudder loving family and I love that they bring kids into this fun, too. All of my sons fall into the age range, so this will be totally-and-utterly-amazing.
The first Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder event will debut in the US at Tough Mudder Gulf Coast on March 7 near Pensacola, Florida, and the first UK event will take place on May 2 & 3 near Henley, Oxfordshire.
