Horrible race. We did last years and liked it. This year they had half the obstacles. Understaffed. Poorly managed. So disappointing especially after the price. Had a $20.00 deal but then plus insurance and a "processing" fee per person not per transaction turned out to $40.00 a ticket. Plus $10.00 to park. So not worth it.

This was my first Terrain Race experience, and from the website and lower entry fees I didn't expect as much as I would from a Spartan Race for example. I was however really disappointed in the lack of staff on the course. It was very challenging to stay on the course as it was very poorly marked. I had not done a Terrain race before, and so I was not sure how to do some of the obstacles, of which many had nobody there to explain. Not having a non-completion penalty is also frustrating when the obstacles are wet and muddy. I would be curious to see how many people actually completed the tarzan rope obstacle. It was a fun day for a good workout, but I would not consider calling this a serious race experience at all.

Worst race I've ever run

Oct 01, 2018 by Jordan

This was absolutely the worst obstacle race I have ever participated in. The traffic management was almost nonexistent, with only a single person taking money for all incoming vehicles. This caused a ~30 minute line of cars for parking.

The check-in tables were covered, but the spot where waivers were to be signed and taken to the check in tents was not, which was a very big problem given that it was a rainy day- all forms were soaked, and there was only one working pen at the entire table.

The bag check-in had a $5 cash only fee, which was not advertised through the registration process or reminder emails.

There was almost nothing to do pre-race. There was one barbecue truck selling food, but it was very very far from the start line. The only tents set up were selling either selling Terrain Run merch or life insurance (either All-State or Farmer's, I think?)

The trail itself was entirely saturated and covered in mud, as it has been raining very frequently leading up to the event, and the day of the event. The trail was to the point where you could not run for 80% of it without rolling an ankle. In my opinion, the run should have been called for rain and rescheduled.

The obstacles were all very, very poorly managed, and ~1/4 of them were entire not doable as a result of the rainy conditions. Ever try climbing a knotless rope that is entirely covered with slick, wet mud? Or getting a toe hold on a climbing wall that's caked with still wet mud? Of the obstacles that were able to be done, there was very little volunteer management or turnout, leading to almost no direction at the obstacles.

After finishing, we learned the water tank had run entirely dry (and we were on the 10:00 wave, so other waves were still starting as we finished). Medals were given, but there was no fruit, no food, just cheap plastic cups of tepid water.

As mentioned before, there was no after party. The changing tent was very small and cramped, though almost entirely unused as there was no water for rinsing off the mud.

I have attended many obstacle races over the last five years, and this was by far the absolute worst. I will never run another race managed by this group.

Poor planning

Sep 30, 2018 by Tosha

Poorly organized. I’ve done several races this was by far the worst. It was so muddy you could barely run. Obstacles where in poor shape. They ran out of water for rinse off, course went in circle, trouble staying on course, 3 lines to check in. No one even checked your voucher or start time. Heats just went whenever. No vendors. Some food. Kids run was ok. Maybe 3 good obstacles. I won’t do it again.

Very Disappointing

Sep 30, 2018 by Chrissy Brown

This years race compared to the past years was an utter disappointment. There were a lack of obstacles, one mud obstacle and one water obstacle. There was a lack of volunteers and instructions at each obstacle. There was only one option a 5k and I’m not sure it was a true 5k there was no pool at the beginning of the race, no beer at the end of the race and not much of a celebration or after party. There were fewer than 15 obstacles and the obstacles were very lack luster. This race has completely changed and is a joke, not an obstacle course at all! Either bring back the original terrain race with all the obstacles or call this a different race because this is definitely not a terrain race.

Cheap obstacle race for beginners

Sep 29, 2018 by JC

Terrain Race is great for beginners for the price. We only paid $20 which is a lot less than Spartan. However, you do get what you paid for. There aren't a lot of obstacles and most of them are fairly easy. Tarzan is the only one that's on the difficult side. There is only one mud obstacle so you can stay fairly dry and clean if you skip that one and if you don't fall off the monkey bar. Most of the competitors are beginners or kids / teenagers so a few obstacles have a long waiting line. A lot of the obstacles do not have a guide to you when it begins / ends so it can get confusing.

The t-shirt quality is poor and not soft like Spartan or Rugged Maniac. The metal is cool though. There are no sponsors or much activities after the race. There is no free sports drink or snack or fruits after the race. You only get t-shirt and metal.
Overall, there weren't that many people at all. Definitely a lack of energy and excitement compared to Spartan and Rugged Maniac.

For the price, it's a fine race for beginners to try out.

We signed up for race back in January because of a discount special but after today we found ourselves very disappointed in the up keep of the obstacles and how poorly ran it was. I’ve run many mud runs such as Spartans, warrior dashes, and tough mudders and this one was by far the toughest because all of the obstacles had no attendants so they became very dangerous and I typically look forward to them but not this time. On top of it all at 130pm they ran out of water to shower off so poor planning for sure. The only reason I gave it 2 stars and not 1 is because the Monkey metal was neat and I liked the shirt but overall I won’t be signing up again next year

A joke

Sep 29, 2018 by Shane

I love obstacle races have done plenty through the yrs, but this by far is the worst one. It was Poorly ran with no guidance on the track or off the track. Not many vendors, lack of changing stationg stations. The obstacles were also a joke. Very disappointing

Waiting to get paid.

Sep 24, 2018 by Nick

I liked: the location (local pumpkin patch), the cost ($50 groupon competitive wave), and the obstacles (well built and somewhat challenging).

What I disliked was that I won the competitive wave and have yet to receive the award money, even after over a month of waiting and several emails to their "finance" department that they directed me to. Also, many of the obstacles had no volunteers or staff at them, so when I ran a second lap in an open wave (competitive pricing gives you unlimited laps) there was a huge line of people at the orange, sideways rock climbing wall/peg board obstacle. There was no one there to direct them, so people thought they had to climb back and forth over top of the obstacle. This took FOREVER, and seemed dangerous. Once directed by myself and other onlookers, the obstacle went much smoother, but I felt they should of had at least one person there to monitor it.

I doubt I'll do another Terrain Race again if they fall through on their awards.

Gateway was cool location for us as usually have to travel at least an hour but most of the mud/water was way past disgusting I think a lot of venues are man made so we call that clean mud but Gateway mud looked and smelled hazardous Definitely entry level have done most of well known mudruns in the area and this is cheapest don't think I will do this again.
