Day of the Dash

Mud Runner

Okay mud runners. When you arrive on race day, if you have gawkers in tow, lose them. They’re not gonna wanna rock the race packet pick-up line with you. No packet? You’re not racing the mud run. But yes, you can let a bud pick it up if said bud has a copy of your photo ID, your confirmation, and a signed, initialed, dated copy of the participation waiver.

Arrive one hour, minimally, before your wave launches into its own rollicking, rowdy mud slide. Parking -- $10 a carload. Mud runner dress code -- running shoes and clothes that dry quickly. Not cotton. It feels like lead when you’re tired and it’s wet. Gloves are cool, too. Remember: No food. No alcohol. No pets. Period. Rain or shine, we’re on! After the last race, awards -- and then the big bash!

What to Bring

  • Shoes- Normal running shoes will be best.

  • You might what a pair of gloves to prevent rope burn or splitters from the obstacles.

  • Clothes- Quick drying apparel would be best. Cotton and thick clothing will only weigh you down and make you colder. Remember that you will get muddy!

  • Change of clothes so you can look good for the Bash!

  • Spare change for food and beverages.

  • A positive attitude!

  • We will not ship any packets. They must be picked up at the site.

  • You will need a photo ID, an initialed, dated and signed copy of your waiver. This is optional but will speed up registration. Download one here.
