‘Mud Mania’ stomps into Scottsdale

May 21, 2013 by  

Children and adults from the Scottsdale area are invited to have fun splashing through several hundred tons of muck as they take part in a long-standing local tradition.

In about three weeks’ time, the city will be hosting its ‘Mighty Mud Mania’ event for the 38th straight year. Banner printing is likely to be in higher demand as the organizers and sponsors of this exciting obstacle course prepare to entertain thousands of attendees.

The event will be open to participants of all ages. Kids aged six and under will enjoy meandering through a miniature course, while those between seven and 12 years old will face a slightly bigger challenge on the ‘Original’ path. Attendees who are 13 and older will run through the ‘Extreme Mud Course’, which will contain more tires, rope swings, and nets than the other two routes.

After they have finished, course runners will be able to wash off at several stations throughout the park. They will also have a chance to purchase food and drinks from a number of vendors on-site.

Admission to the event will be free for those who are aged 17 or younger. Adults will need to pay a $10 fee. Proceeds from Mighty Mud Mania will go toward afterschool programs for local youth. Attendees are also encouraged to arrive with canned goods, which will go to the community food bank.

Mighty Mud Mania will run from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 8. It will take place at Chaparral Park (5401 North Hayden Road). Those wishing to pre-register may call (480) 312-0217.
