3rd Annual Ventura Eco-Extreme Mud Challenge on Saturday, April 25th

The 3rd Annual Ventura Eco Xtreme Mud Challenge presented by the Ventura Police Officers Association is planned for Saturday, April 25th starting at 10:30 am. The goal of this event is to create a fun and challenging adventure while raising money for the Dee Dowell Foundation.

The course, approximately 3 miles of obstacles, steep hills, and mud, will take place in downtown Ventura just above Grant Park at the training grounds for the Ventura Police Department. This location will provide exceptional views of the city and ocean in a unique and natural environment. The course terrain is primarily on trails and fire roads with extreme hills, killer steps, professionally built obstacles and several places where you will get extremely muddy. You will get wet and you will get muddy. Be sure to bring towels and a change of clothing. This event is certain to test both your physical strength and mental toughness!

The Kids 1K is for kids 14 & under and features many of the same obstacles found in the full 5K mud challenge such as the mud pit bottle neck, cargo net climb, and the traverse of death. All registered kids who finish will receive a prize.
