Mini Mountain Challenge

The Date

The 2016 Mini Mountain Challenge was the biggest and best ever, and we're alrady planning new ideas for 2017. The 2017 Mini Mountian Challenge will be on Sunday, July 30 and regisration will open in the spring.

The Course

For those new to the Mini Mountain Challenge, get ready – it’ll probably be the most specular display of fun (and funny) kid grit that you’ll ever witness. And yes, your kids are almost always tougher then than you.

The Mini Mountain Challenge is similar to the adult’s Tough Mountain Challenge, but designed for kids ages 4 through 12, and it’s all about having fun and getting as dirty as “little humanly” possible. Kids can expect a course that includes uphill and downhill running, combined with dirt, mud, fun obstacles, snowguns, and more!

Please note that the Mini Mountain Challenge is organized into three heats: 10AM for ages 10-12, 10:30AM for ages 7-9, and and 11AM for ages 4-6. Course length and obstacles will vary for each age group.



All kids should bring clothes and shoes they don't mind getting dirty, an appetite for fun, and a sense of friendly competition. Parents can watch from the start and finish area but are asked to stay off the course to allow room for the kids to run.
