  • Course Details

    Course Details

    How hard is this?

    Our obstacles are designed so you can conquer them on your own but it's always nice to have a teammate help push you over these huge walls. Even the competitive athletes will struggle and instead of a penalty when you can't conquer an obstacle, you just keep trying until you do! For open waves it's fine to skip an obstacle, but the competitive will be disqualified if they do.

    Extra laps

    Want to race more than once? For an extra $15 you can run as many laps as you want. This is great if you want to race the Competitive wave and then again with family or friends new to mud runs. You'll get a special wrist sweatband and each lap you complete you'll collect a monkey pin so you can brag after the race.

    Where's the map?

    Part of the difficulty is we won't post a map until race day! With surprises around the corner the race becomes more challenging but we will have a huge map for you to study right before the start cannon goes off.


    Best for first timers and athletes that want to have a great time. If you can jog 3 miles and do a couple pushups and sit ups, you can do our 5k course! You'll be ready to slosh in the mud, jump over 6 foot high walls, 12 foot high rope walls, and 16 foot high cargo nets.


    If the short course sounds too easy, get ready for a tougher course with 5-7 miles of running and over 20 obstacles to really challenge you. This is for athletes that want a tougher course and more obstacles.

    Little Monkey

    A 0.5-mile course with smaller obsacles for ages 2-8. Parents can run for free alongside their kid if they need assistance.

  • Teams


    You can race on a team or solo, but mud runs with friends are so much more fun!

    After buying an entry, you can decide if you want to race on a team. You will have the option to create a new team or join one. So you don't have to sign your whole team up at the same time.

    Why race on a team? Teams of 5 or larger (no limit!) are eligible for our best dressed team award, largest team award, and each teammate will get a coupon to save on future races and merchandise!

  • Awards


    This is a race and all athletes will be timed! Your time will be slower than a 5k or 10k race, but it's always nice to see how you rank compared to fellow athletes.

    We use chip timing so you can see how fast you really are and we provide you with a free printable finisher certificate online after the race.

    The fastest three men and women in each distance in the Elite waves will receive a free entry to another terrain Mud Run.

    The Endurance distance is two laps on the 5+ mile course and all athletes must start at 9am. The fastest three men and women in the Endurance wave will be eligible for prizes.

You can race for free, or with a $10 donation to a local non-profit you'll get a free Gorilla Gauntlet t-shirt if you can beat your buddy!
