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 and Timing

Awards and Timing

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.

Course Details

5k Kids

For ages 7-15. Ages 7-13 must race with a parent. This course follows the regular 5k course, it's just cheaper for those under 16.


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.
