Mud Babes is a trail running group that runs the mountain bike trails in Shawnee Mission Park (SMP) on Monday nights at 6 p.m. year-round.   We are women focused, but welcome anyone who is looking for a friendly, social run or an introduction to trail running.  We run a figure- eight course that provides either a 2.5 or 4.5 mile run (both options available every Monday).  No one gets left behind and all paces are welcome.  Bring your own water.  You’ll need a headlamp or flashlight in the winter.

The mountain bike trails do close in wet conditions, so we generally move the run to the SMP south side (“dog park”) trails accessed from shelter 8.  Check the FB page for updates.

Mud Babes also provide opportunities for volunteer work through both trail maintenance and race volunteering. 

Check out our FB page for the most up to date information on Monday runs, volunteer activities, and many other items of interest.
