Registration open for Mini-Mudder at Gladys City

Registration is now open for children ages six to 12 to take part in Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown’s first-ever Mini-Mudder Romp, part of the museum’s Great Outdoors Day event to be held on June 21.

“Mud runs and challenges, like the Tough Mudder, are very popular with adults, right now,” said museum director Mark Osborne. “We developed the Mini-Mudder for kids to encourage families to get outside and, well, get dirty!”

Registration for the Mini-Mudder is $15 per child with a limited number of reduced registrations of $10 per child for youth groups. Parents/guardians may register children to run individually or as part of a team of no more than four children. In addition, parents may run the course with six year olds at no charge and compete in a final “No-Child” heat at the end of the day for $10. Registration ends June 4. Complete details about the Mini-Mudder Romp and other Great Outdoors Day activities may be found on the museum’s web site at
