Spread the Word Nevada will have a booth at Queen Bee Market, where representatives will collect new or gently used books. Shoppers who donate three or more books will receive $1 off their general admission ticket. Attendees can also make monetary donations at the booth.

 

Queen Bee Market, described as “Etsy comes to life,” will host more than 70 vendors who make their products by hand and display their products from booths that are designed with flair. Co-owners of Queen Bee Market, sisters Kellie Dooley and Allison Gharst, hand-pick the artisans who will be showcasing and selling an array of handmade home décor, accessories, clothing, paper arts, vintage items and more.

Providence

Mad Mud Run returns to Las Vegas on April 27 at Providence

— Fun obstacle course, mud pit for whole family, teams —

— Bring new, gently used books for Spread the Word Nevada —

 

It’s fun to get dirty, burn a few calories and laugh a lot with family and friends. People of all ages can do that at the Mad Mud Run and Mudpuppy Splash for kids, starting at 9 a.m., Saturday, April 27. For the third year in a row, the unique event will be held at the Providence master planned community in northwest Las Vegas. Festivities are centered at the community’s new Knickerbocker Park, located at 10695 W. Dorrell Lane.

Participants of the 4.6-mile, timed Mad Mud Run race will travel an action-packed, marked course through multiple obstacles that culminate with a cool and messy mud pit. Obstacles encompass typical “boot camp” style activities with a low wall, belly crawl, balance beams, water wall, tire array, hay bales, and the 40-foot-long mud pit. The maximum time on the course is two hours.

There will be four waves for adult racers at 9 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., and may be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Race day check-in begins at 8 a.m., and mandatory pre-race announcements will be made 15 minutes prior to each start. The minimum age to participate is 12 years old. For those under 18, special waivers are required.

The 100-meter Mudpuppy Splash is open to the first 200 4 to 12-year-olds who register. The $15 per child cost includes a t-shirt and dog tag. Children, ages 4 to 6, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian through the mud pit (adult doesn’t have to register for this unless competing in Mad Mud Run). Registration will be available until 11 a.m. on race day with the event starting around 11:30 a.m.

Cost for the Mad Mud Run is $50 per person until April 13 and $60 per person thereafter until 10:15 a.m. on race day when registration closes. The fee includes an event t-shirt and dog tag.  Online registration, at www.madmudrun.com, closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 24. Early registration will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, April 26 at REI Boca Park, 710 S Rampart Boulevard.

Costumes are encouraged with prizes awarded to those deemed most creative.

Mad Mud Run begins and ends at Knickerbocker Park, with the course winding through the 1,200-acre community and surrounding neighborhood. Other activities at the park will include registration, entertainment, refreshments, booths, volleyball, soccer and other park games.

Entrants and other attendees are encouraged to donate to or bring new and gently used books for Spread the Word Nevada. The nonprofit organization promotes literacy to make it possible for all children in Nevada to experience the magic of books.

Mad Mud Run organizers also need people to douse participants with water in the course’s Splash Zone so Super Soakers are welcome. Other volunteers are welcome too.
