MUD…SWEAT…CHEERS! This one’s for you, all of you boys and girls that are aged 6-16! It’s non-competitive! Your goals are to make it through the Gritty Course and have FUN! On the 1.5 mile course, you’ll meander your way through mud and muck near Offats Bayou. Yup, there will be mud. There will be sand. There will be foam. Along the way, you’ll go over, under, through, and into a variety of awesome obstacles, in your quest to be a Gritty Kid! If there’s an obstacle that spooks you, it’s ok. You can skip any of ‘em that seem too scary. If you want your mom or dad, brother or sister, aunt or uncle, grandfather or grandmother to tag along with you, that’s ok too! You’re allowed to bring one adult with you on the course! There is a $5 fee for each accompanying adult, to cover insurance costs. SEE THE COURSE MAP HERE
You will get muddy. You’ll get sandy. You’ll get foamy! You’ll go through tubes, run through mud, crawl through a mud pit, climb over a wall, navigate your way through a maze, and climb a cargo net and a mulch pile, for starters!
Wanna help out, and help the get the kids through the course? Volunteer! Contact info@grittygoddess.com!
