Care should be taken to complete obstacles in the way you are directed. Race Directors stationed at each obstacle will provide instructions. Some obstacles have ropes that can be used if you feel the terrain is too steep. Ropes do not have to be used but rather are there for your safety. If obstacles cannot be competed, Race Directors will give you further instructions.
What should you wear?
Shoes – normal running shoes. Cleats are not a good idea because of the many different terrain surfaces. Some people recommend boots but these can get heavy when they become wet and muddy.
Clothes – lightweight stuff that dries quickly. Clothes should fit comfortably and not get loose or baggy after getting wet. Even if it’s a cold day, heavy or thick clothing will just retain water and make you colder. You should also bring a change of clothes for after the event so you can enjoy the post-race festival.
Gloves – this one is more debatable. Some people swear by them, others prefer to go glove-less (faster drying). If you go with gloves, be sure to grab tough, thick ones to prevent burns from the ropes and splinters from the walls.
The following amenities are available:
Showers: Showers will be provided for racers to wash off after the race (although you look so good in mud!)
Soap: Tecnu soap will be provided at the shower area. We strongly recommend that runners shower after the race to help prevent skin irritation.
Changing booths: Provided for runners change post race so they can enjoy the post-race festival.
Restrooms: Restrooms are available at the festival area.
Food: Runners will receive free pancakes after the race. Festival goers can choose from pancakes and other food items for a small charge.
Teams: Teams consist of any number of runners wishing to run together under a given name or designation.
A member of the team will start the registration process and set up the team at that time. They will choose a Team Name and password. Additional members of the team can then register through the normal process and select their team name from the drop-down menu. Once the registration process is complete, they will be registered as part of that team.
In the spirit of teams you should start, compete and finish the event together. However, if members of the team wish to run different distances, they are free to do so.
There will be NO Team Timing for this race. We are not offering team discounts at this time.
