The course begins with a swim (25 yards for ages 5 to 8 and those in the Family Division; 50 yards for ages 9 to 10; 100 yards for all other ages). The swim is followed by a 1K run and then a 200-yard obstacle course.
The obstacle course - the highlight of the race - involves mud, tires, hay, water, walls, and much more to provide a fun physical challenge for all ages.
The age groups are 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15, and then a Family Division, with one parent and one child between the ages of 4 and 6. Every athlete will receive a participant medal.
Event registration costs $38 per participant for Manhattan Beach residents ($42/participant for nonresidents), or $50 for on-site registration until 8:30 a.m.. T-shirts are available for $10.
The popular race, produced by the Manhattan Beach Department of Parks and Recreation, is now in its 8th year.
