Not enough mud in your kid’s life?

Load ’em up and head to Dripping Springs on Saturday for the Kids Obstacle Challenge, where they can climb cargo nets, sail off a rope swing into muddy water, scale walls, crawl through a mud pit, get wet, get dirty and, yes, wallow in a muddy paradise.

Sound good to you, too? Parents are allowed to run alongside their child as they tackle the obstacles.

The event takes place at Dripping Springs Ranch Park, 1042 Event Center Drive, with waves going off between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Entry fee is $46 online (registration ends at 8 p.m. Friday) or $56 at the site on Saturday. Parents run for free. Anyone can re-run the course for an additional $5.

The course is designed for kids ages 5 to 16, who will face 10 to 15 obstacles. There is no time limit, but it takes most participants about 30 minutes to complete the course.
