Scholarships Available! If your child would like to participate in the Tri 4 Schools Youth Mud Run and will require financial assistance to enter, please contact our Race Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholarships are available through a grant from Group Health Cooperative and the Downtown Kiwanis Club of Madison. For those who register at least two weeks out from the race, we can work with sponsors to find running shoes for your child if needed.
Obstacles will be safe for children of all ages (no barbed wire, fire, or electric shocks here!). We will also rotate in new obstacles along with some of your favorites for each race. Parents, talk with your children about which obstacles they feel comfortable going through – they can always go around an obstacle and take the “clean track” if they don’t want to get wet/muddy.
For the entire layout, check out our Official Official Course Map!
The distances and suggested ages are as follows, but remember, you can sign up for any distance you would like! The key is to challenge yourself and train appropriately.
|Appx. 1/2 mile||7 and under|
|Appx. 1 mile||8-12|
|Appx. 2 miles||13-17|
The race will be held at Festival Park in Verona, located behind City Hall – 111 Lincoln St., Verona, WI 53593
Driving directions via Google Maps can be found here.
From the Beltline, take the Verona Rd. exit and take 18-151 south. Take exit 81 for Verona, heading west on Verona Avenue until you see Culver’s on your right. Turn left onto Lincoln Street, and the park is just past the fire station on your left.
You can park in the small lot at City Hall, at Eagles Nest ice rink. There will be street parking available, but please be aware of No Parking signs in certain locations as marked by Verona Police.
Wave schedules are posted two weeks in advance. Start time is 9am for our two mile course, with the one mile course starting around 9:30am, and half mile starting around 10:15am.
If you need to change a wave, you will need to do so online (available until online registration closes) or on race morning at our Wave Changes table.
All participants will receive finisher medals. This race will not be timed, so there will not be any awards for top finishers. The goal of this race is to encourage fun and fitness, so if your child would like to be timed, please have them wear a stopwatch.
Finally, we have one traveling trophy that will be awarded to the school with the most participants. This will be a traveling trophy presented at your school after the race, and you can display it proudly until the next Tri 4 Schools event!
