Lauren M. wrote, “My family and I participated in the Tonka Mud Run this past weekend and had a terrific time! The event was so well organized and a terrific way for families to spend a Saturday morning being active and giving back. We can’t wait to do it again next year.”

Southwest Metro Magazine listed the Tonka Mud Run as one of the best 5ks in the area.

The upcoming race on July 11 will be the third year of the event, which benefits a local satellite of Kids Against Hunger.  The race will be held at the beautiful Lake Minnewashta Regional Park.

The courses have fun, safe and family- friendly obstacles, such as mazes, limbo, rope climbing, waterslides, and sandcastle building in the Tonka Mud Run. And for the mini mudders: hula hoops, bubbles, hay bales, tunnels, rolling and hopping.  And, of course, mud!

The Chanhassen Fire Department will be there to hose you off at the finish.  Music, face painting, sand volleyball, a bounce house, and a pull-up bar challenge will provide even more fun!

Can you get through the maze of backpacks and toys left behind by your kids?
 Can you build a rocking sandcastle?
Then you might have what it takes to complete the Tonka Mud Run.

 How often do adults get to play in the mud, run, jump, climb, be like kids again—and all for a good cause? On August 24 bring your family and friends to the first annual Tonka Mud Run. Held at beautiful Lake Minnewashta Regional Park, the course is appropriate for various athletic abilities (designed for ages 10+). The full course is a bit longer than a 5k, with a shorter options for kids and adults who aren’t sure if they want to do the entire course. We also have the Mini-Tonka Mud Race for younger children.  Whatever your goal, you’ll have fun and know that you’re helping a good cause too.

Join us for this family-friendly event that combines fun, exercise, time outdoors, and raising money to support Kids Against Hunger-West Metro. KAH-WM is a non-profit organization and is committed to inspiring, engaging, and educating people, starting with our children, by packaging life-saving meals that ease world hunger.
