Kids from around Northwest Arkansas came together in Springdale today to race in the 3rd Annual Obstacle Runaround.
The race gives kids 30 minutes to overcome obstacles including a mud run, slip ‘n slide, tire run, army crawl, a balance beam, and more.
The event was hosted by the Jones Center, and the race was open to kids ages 5 to 12.
“On a scale from 1 to 10, I’d say it was about a 10,” said participant Dez Evans.
Recreation coordinator Meredith Joseph said this year was the event’s biggest yet.
Nearly 200 kids participated in the Obstacle Runaround last year.
