banzai-0059

Is the Banzai Physical Challenge a race?  NO!  Although we love competition, this event was designed to encourage fitness and teamwork among families. Challenging your physical ability and having fun is our goal for you. We request that you make memories and get muddy!

Can my 4-6 Year old compete in the larger course? Yes!  Our ages posted are simply a suggestion based on our research. However, a lot of 4,5 & 6 year old kids have what it takes to complete the entire course. We will require parents to purchase an adult ticket and compete with the younger kids and you will need to purchase the ticket for the Mud Warrior (7-17) year old. 

Is this a normal mud run?  NO!  This event was designed specifically for kids and families to get out of the house and have fun together!  Adults cannot participate without a child! 

How long is the course?  Each course will be different but the distance will be between just over 2  miles for the Mud Warrior course and no more than 1 mile for the Mini-Warrior course.
