Have you ever watched a scary movie and wondered how your adrenaline will kick in if you had to race for your life? Well, this is your opportunity to do so. This is an action packed race with 20+ obstacles, zombies at every turn, and every changing terrain. The only difference, is that in this race, you can have additional chances with lifelines that will help you complete your tasks and make it out alive. When you finish you have access to a full out PARTY! Live bands will entertain you as you finally have a chance to sit down and eat some good BBQ, and check out our awesome vendors who only come out when theres a party to be a part of!


Each participant will be given an arm band before the mud run event. As you run through the mud and obstacles you will be given the chance to gather lifelines(ribbon) and attach them to your arm band. At each lifeline station you will be given the opportunity to obtain one lifeline. We say opportunity because the zombies will not make it easy for you. You will be constantly under siege from the grim reaper and his followers trying to steal your life(ribbon) away so BEWARE zombies are lurking! You can obtain more than one lifeline throughout the course but only ONE at each lifeline station. You are not allowed to take other participant’s lifeline or pick them up off the ground except at lifeline stations.



Racers who manage to finish this 5k mud run obstacle course with at least one lifeline intact will be considered alive, while those who finish without a lifeline will have run themselves to death but on the bright side, they’ll be able to accurately describe the afterlife to whoever will listen.

Must run! Watch out for those zombies though sometimes they get me

Aug 29, 2014 by 1muddydude

The medals were really cool for this race! If you are looking for a good time but not too competitive this is the race for you! In the world of obstacle racing they had some fun unique obstacles that I'm sure will be copied soon, but it was nice to have some originality! Zombies were great- I'll be back in 2014!

Can't wait for 2014

Just signed up for 2014! Saw all the negative reviews and just had to put my two cents in...This race had room for improvement, but so does everyone else. I had a great time with my team! Looking forward to 2014! Thanks for mud, zombies, and obstacles all in one place!

Had a Blast

Aug 27, 2014 by mudrungirl

I feel like I must have been at a completely different race than the people that did not enjoy this event! We had so much fun and are going to definitely run again this year. The zombies were chasing us, the obstacles were challenging, the people organizing the event were really friendly. I didn't have any problems with race times or anything else and neither did any of the crew I was with on this race. I guess we will see how this year goes but Im definitely looking forward to this event


Beyond disappointing

May 07, 2013 by Moriah Hart

I just wanted to express my extreme disappointment in this race. The description on the website was nothing like the actual race, the obstacles, the amount of zombies (7 the whole race, ONLY 1 who even attempted to go after anyone, the others literally were sitting) and so on. I know a guarantee about how many zombies will be there cannot be in place due to it is a voluntary, but NONE of the obstacles were even remotely challenging and there were hardly any of the obstacles described present in the race. I was in complete disbelief at the false advertising in place here. My brother and I were so excited for this challenge and were completely let down by the quality of this race, not to mention the integrity of the people who put it on. This was by far the worst race we have ever done. The reviews I have read all sound the same way. My assumption is that refunds will not be given due to the fact we did run the race and because of the paperwork we signed. My question is, why did this happen and why the race was so poorly represented and what actions do you plan to take to resolve this currently or in the future?


A waste of money

May 07, 2013 by Diana

This race was lacking a lot. Problems with the obstacles...hardly any zombies.. Didn't even get chased. Ridiculous and want our money back


Don't waste your money

One of the worst obstacle races I have seen in a long time

Same thing happened to us. Emailed a wave time that didn't exist! What a rip off! Apparently the race ended at noon. We want our $ back.

Horrible

May 06, 2013 by kris sigg

Received an email that our wave was at 4:00 PM. Showed up and was informed that the race ended at 12:00. Was promised a phone call by the event coordinator that was never received.


I was there

May 04, 2013 by Jason

Very little effort was put into this event. 3 zombies 5km. Staged footage of people pretending to be chased filmed off to the side of the track. Then no water for the slide, or to clean off at the end.
I feel ripped off.
