You will be running approximately 3 miles and finishing multiple obstacles including mud pits, mud trenches, mud bath, and if you haven’t guessed there will be mud involved. We don’t have a specified workout but death(losing your lifelines) may come early to those who are not quite as prepared. I’d advise you to work out and start with a mud bath.

Approximately 350 participants will sign up for a start time. Race announcements will be every 30 minutes. Please review your confirmation email for arrival times. You will need to arrive an hour before your wave time to park, sign in, and be ready to start with your assigned wave time.

There will be a medical team onsite and various response team members placed throughout the course to quickly assist those who feel they need assistance.

Registration is on an individual basis. Participants are encouraged to help one another throughout the mud run event and course so the more friends you bring the better opportunity you will have to finish with a lifeline. You can always form a personal team and coordinate costumes with others but there won’t be any official registration of teams.

You have two choices:

  1. Come to grips with your deepest fears as the grim reaper releases a realm of terror few have experienced and proceed.
  2. Chicken exits available.

Swimming will be minimal, if any, and there will be assistance at all obstacles to direct you around if you are not able to do a specific obstacle.

Change of clothes and don’t forget clean shoes. Photo ID for packet pick up and signing up, participant waiver, money for parking, food, and mud gear. Don’t forget your excitement and get ready to be scared…BOO!
