Raiders of the Lost Park


The RAIDERS of the LOST PARK MUD RUN is a fun event for everyone! Mount Olive Recreation creates a mud run course with 15+ fun, challenging obstacles including a 20 ft mud wall, the Logs of Death and the Mud Pits of Doom, to name a few, along a 5K course. The Raiders of the Lost Park encourages individuals and families to get out and achieve something awesome!  Our event is open to children as young as 5 years! Our obstacles are all designed to be fun - like a running through a giant people sized car wash or going down a huge foam slip and slide at the finish line!

(waves will continue every 5 minutes)

Turkey Brook Park, 30 Flanders Road, Budd Lake, NJ 07828


You will slide down a giant mud wall, crawl through tires and tubes, hurl yourself through waist deep mud, climb structures, battles through the dark woods and more! We PROMISE, you will be wet, muddy and have a true sense of accomplishment at the end of this adventure! The way we see it, you are there to have fun and get a real sense of achievement at the end. If you think a particular obstacle isn’t going to do this for you, just go around it – no shame there.
