Course Description:

Feel your anxiety raise as the grim reaper releases you onto a 5k course of chaos. Your worst nightmare will seem like a fairytale as you drag yourself in and out of mud pits and hurl your shaking body over obstacle after obstacle. You will face everything from mindless, lumbering brutes, to lightning-fast, cunning predators driven forward by an insatiable hunger for your lifelines. The real question is will you escape the chase or run to death! In your race packet you will be given an arm band to wear. As you enter and run through the course you will be given opportunities to pick up lifelines. These lifelines will attach to your arm band and will represent your life. As you are trying to pick up your lifelines, the haunted course will definitely surprise you as followers of death are lurking at every corner to steal your lifelines. If you have at least one lifeline at the end of the mud run course you will be considered alive if not you will have run to death.
Obstacles may include:

  • Graveyard Mounds(***lifeline opportunity): 20 foot dirt mounds will get you warmed up for what lies ahead
  • Through the Trenches: commando crawl through the mud trenches or risk the barbed wire above
  • Swamp Time: the mud just keeps getting deeper and deeper
  • Balance Beam: walk across a 20 foot balance beam but be careful your shoes are muddy
  • Roll in the Hay: if you didn’t think you were dirty enough think again hay and mud go great together
  • Field of Dreams(***lifeline opportunity): monsters are waiting so don’t let the lifelines scattered all around distract you
  • Pyramid of Death: up and over the pyramid you go
  • Firing Range: another commando crawl but you better keep low the black plastic over head is the only thing protecting you from the paint ball firing squad above.
  • 50/50(***lifeline opportunity): 50 yd dash while carrying a 50 lb sack or smaller competitor
  • Death by Hanging: climb across the rope ladder but be careful the monsters are below
  • Monster Mash(***lifeline opportunity): the mallets our monsters have been given are not deadly but I would avoid at all cost
  • Ring of Fire: of course we have to have fire to jump over
  • Black Hole(***lifeline opportunity): this 150 foot water slide will help wash off some of the mud and finish with a splash


Awards will be presented at noon. Top 3 overall males and females. Awards will be given to the top three best and worst costume. Must be present to receive awards. Awards will not be mailed.


There will generally be a $10 parking fee, but this varies by location so check specific location for mud run event details.

You will receive a free t-shirt, help in your demon transformation, and food and drink. Wear a frightening costume and we will have some fake blood and a few make-up artists on hand!
