Q5: Kids get set for Mud U at Lake McMurtry

STILLWATER, Okla. — Timothy Baghurst, an assistant professor in health and human performance at Oklahoma State University, came up with the concept of Mud U, which will take place April 26-27.

1 So what exactly is Mud U and who can participate?

Mud U is a muddy obstacle course for children between the ages of 6-13 at Lake McMurtry here in Stillwater.

2 How much does it cost to participate?

It is $25 for an individual or $23 if you are part of a team. Teams are groups of five to eight.

3 What’s the purpose of the event?

It’s purpose is to provide children and youth with the opportunity to participate in this kind of event that has been available for adults.


4 Why did you create the event?

With my background in health and human performance, if somebody was going to design one it should be me.

We have developed 15 obstacles that they have to progress through. Parents get to sign their child for a specific time. Parents don’t have to be there all day.
