JOIN US FOR OUR 9th ANNUAL TOUGH GATOR CHALLENGE at Geiger Elementary School from 10:00am-2:00pm!

The Tough Gator Challenge is an obstacle course and mud run for Lewiston-area elementary school children and their families. The next (rain-or-shine!) event is scheduled for Saturday, June 8th, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Geiger Elementary School on College Street in Lewiston. Participants will start in waves every 15 minutes throughout the day.

Now in its 9th year, the Tough Gator Challenge is Maine’s premier mud run for kids, drawing nearly 700 participants annually.  Family members of all ages are encouraged to register and participate together.  

The focus of the event is on being active, using teamwork, getting muddy and having fun! It is not a timed race, but a challenge everyone should be proud of finishing. All YOUTH finishers will receive  the honorary title of “Tough Gator” and a youth T-shirt, generously donated by Geiger.

Stay tuned for this year's course updates!

Food, Music, Mud & Water. Lots of opportunities for a memorable PHOTO, so show your team spirit! and dress up!
