Jones Center hosts 3rd annual Obstacle Runaround


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.
