About This Activity

The Great Escape is a 5K Run held on the property of the Land O' Lakes Detention Center. Some of your adventure will be in the back woods and some will be in fields. Be prepared for a lot of mud and challenging obstacles!  The Mud Run portion of this event is for all individuals 14 years of age and up. 

The fun will not only be for the participants.  We will have K-9 Demonstrations, a childrens obstacle course (Delinquent Dash) for those 13 and under.

There will also be slides, jump houses, music and food.

Admission to join the fun and not participate in the mud run will be $5.00.  If you participate in the Mud Run , everything else is free.  Kids under 5 are free. 

Obstacles will include:

Log carry, Smoke house, mud slide, over and under, rope climb, Jacob's ladder, pond swim, artic plunge, tire roll, wall climbs and many more.

Our helicopter will be flying over and you will hear cool sound effects as you run through the course.  Members of our SWAT Team will be unexpectedly water bombing participants, so be prepared!

We will also have several photographers throughout the event that will take action shots.  Every participant will be given a card in their goody bag that will tell them how to find and purchase the photos online.

There will be bathrooms and outdoor showers available.  We will also have cubbies that will be monitored to hold onto any belongs - keys, clothes, shoes, etc.

The food available will consist of: bananas and apples, hamburgers, hotdogs, coleslaw, beans, chips, soda, juices and sport drinks and water. 

We will be giving away (each mud run participant will receive a ticket and automatically be given opportunities to win great prizes, such as Go Pro Cameras, Fit Bits, and gift cards.

There will be designated areas at specific obstacles where family and/or friends can take pictures.  

Parking is free. 

There will be waivers that have to be signed the day of the race.  For those that are under the age of 18 you will need to have your guardian with you to sign your waiver, or you can download the waiver online, which is on our website and have it notarized and bring it with you.
