Mud Run, Challenge, Fitness

Welcome to our fitness, challenge, and mud run elements page!

We got started by designing and building mud run courses for two event companies, several fitness courses for a New England city, and then mini challenge courses for child care centers, and then realized we should offer these elements to everyone, because obesity is the number one issue in this country due to lack of exercise!

As you can see from the pictures featuring both young children and adults, the elements can be scaled to fit any age group, because no matter what their size, they offer the challenges that increase physical fitness, balance, agility, and awareness of self.
