What does the Mud Monster look like? What do they like to eat? How do they spend their time? Complete a series of challenges and activities to unravel clues about the mythical Mud Monster. Each minute you play outdoors you can track as a “Muddy Minute.”Race Info
Collect at least 200 Muddy Minutes of outdoor play and exploration. Go for a trail run, take a
nature hike, dig in your garden, dive into a mud pit, make a mud pie or create a muddy
work of art. Sign up online to track your Muddy Minutes and make a donation to support our Scholarship Fund. Each minute you log counts to our collective goal of 20,000 minutes. Consider asking someone to sponsor your minutes and donate $1 for every minute you play in the mud!

This international celebration began in 2009 when a group of young children in Australia raised money to buy extra clothes so that children in Nepal could share in their joy of playing in the mud. It is a way to remind us that we are all connected through the earth.Learn more about International Mud Day!
