Mud Bug Races

August 5 @ 11:00 am - August 6 @ 5:00 pm

Mud Racing

Take in the live action at the MUD BOGS! Loud, messy and so much fun that you won’t even notice how dirty you get. Every August, machines and their drivers from throughout the BC Interior and beyond start rumbling into the Rodeo Grounds at the Canoe River Campground for the North West Mud Racing weekend. Bring your earplugs and settle in to enjoy the show!

The NWMRA Mud Races are back in Valemount, BC. Join us at the Canoe River Campgrounds. August 5th & 6th, 2023.

Come out and watch the side by side 200ft mud drags, junior racers, blown alcohol dragsters, and the mega hill n’ hole trucks.
During intermission free posters will be available for the kids. They are welcome to go around the pits to get them signed, and take pictures. We strongly recommend wearing ear protection, the front gate does have limited supply of ear protection for sale.
