Family Fun

Aug 06, 2018 by Tom Kraus

Terrain Race is NOT a Spartan Beast. Let's just accept that. That's why the minimum age limit to run is 7 with a parent. So we can't compare the obstacles in Terrain Race to Spartan or TM. Plus the price point is a fraction of those. All we can ask of Terrain Race is for an orderly check in, a quick way to clean up afterwards, and something fun to do in between.

When I got to the Terrain Race in New Jersey on August 4th, 2018 with my 13 yr old daughter the check in was orderly and quick - it took us 5 mins to go from signing waiver, check in, bathroom stop, bag check to starting line. The course itself was on a motocross track that dipped into the woods for a bit before coming back into the open mud pit. Same venue as Bonefrog last year, but with the rain this year, entirely different. Plus, TR isn't Bonefrog, did I say that already?

And when I say mud, I mean mud. Race day followed a rainy week, and the morning had seriously heavy rainfall. The ground was so muddy - 4-5 inches of soft stuff in some spots, that it was impossible to run. But you take what the course gives you sometimes and make the best of it. It was hilarious for us, frustrating for others.

I'm not sure if the mud was the problem, or if the short track was at fault (I heard the 5K was only 2.6 miles), or the fact that TR usually brings out many OCR first timers, but most obstacles had long lines. There is no hurry, no timing chip, but still, its a little boring to wait for each rig, tire flip, and wall to climb over. And TR did pack a lot of obstacles into those 2.6 miles. I would say 65% were easy (short walls, mud pits, heavy carrys, cargo nets), 25% medium (rope climb, monkey bars, 8 ft wall), 10% hard (a rig or 2 at the end had a big failure rate, as far as I could tell). That's a good mix for a beginners course.

Normally I just drive home after a race, but my daughter wanted a few minutes under the hose. Unfortunately there was one garden hose for hundreds of people, and some people brought soap! After 30 mins of not moving on line, we decided a water bottle rinse was good enough.

SO, Terrain Race is family fun. It's a no-pressure OCR race with a lot of not very hard obstacles. If there was less wait at each obstacle, and a real clean up area, they can really control the niche of beginner OCR enthusiast.

No beer at the end. This is my third year doing this race and it has been going down hill every year. Ive done the compedsrive heat twice now and getting there in the morning, they are very unorganized and checking in takes longer than it should. The course wasn’t well marked and several sections runners had to stop and figure out which way to go next and some people accidentally cut out portions of the race because they skipped it. I did not feel the rigs were very sturdy and some felt dangerous while climbing them. I will not be running this race again next year. (Not got first time racers)


Solid experience

Jul 23, 2018 by Michael

This was the 4th or 5th Terrain Race I've ran and every time has proven to be a good experience. The obstacles are good, the festival area is good, I love the finisher medals, the price is great and their customer service is incredible (especially when compared to some of the bigger races).

I'm surprised to hear of other complaints (i.e. no finisher shirts or even water on the course or added fees). While I have to say the finisher t-shirts aren't the greatest quality, they're still pretty good and there has always been water on the courses I've run. Fees for parking, bag check and insurance is expected and are in line with other race series.

Terrain Race puts on a good race and is very family friendly. My young twins loved it when they ran the kid's course a few years ago and love it even more now that they do the full course with me.


not worth it

Jul 17, 2018 by Angie

The race entry itself wasn't expensive, but then every little thing cost extra, including parking and shirts. Who doesn't include shirts in the entry fee?? It made something that seemed cheap at first way more expensive, and it felt deceptive and kind of mean. Also, putting pictures up in "a week or two" is not acceptable. Most races have them up within a day or two at the most. I will not be doing a Terrain Race again.


Stay away!

Jul 06, 2018 by Lynn

This event was horrible! No water on the course and it was 95+ degrees. No staff or medics on course. No after party. Check out their Facebook events. They are changing event dates and not offering refunds. They owe their photographers money. They are rude to people. They are also deleting people’s comments so you may not get to see just how bad they are, but check their bbb rating!


Jun 25, 2018 by RainbowSky

This race was a lot of fun but there are some things I would have liked to have known upfront. The website ALWAYS advertises a half price deal that ends the next day (even on the day of the race). Do not feel pressured to sign up early for fear of missing the deal. There are lots of EXTRA FEES. Insurance fee of $10 per person. Parking fee of $15. Bag check fee $5. Morning registration is slow for those trying to get to the competitive heat by 8:00. The obstacles get very slippery as the day goes on. Earlier heats are safer. Again, I had lots of fun with my family but would have liked to have known these things at the start for planning.


Great obstacles but unprepared for the hear

Jun 17, 2018 by Tiffany

This was my first all terrain race but definitely NOT my first 5k or 5k with obstacles. I will start with the good points. Parking was pleasant tiful and close to the actual starting point. I thought the obstacles were great and really pushed me past what I thought I was capable of. Now for the downside. The event was ill prepared for the June heat in TN and by the end of the race they had not only run out of the water for rinsing off but had absolutely no water to drink for the racers finishing that started in the last heat to run. I have done a lot of summer events and this was the only one that had only 2 water stations on the actual course. June 96+ degrees with a heat index of 100+ they should have had at least 3. Medical assistance was hard to come by. Individuals who needed help would be waiting for a very long time sitting on the side of the course. I would hate to think of what may have happened if any of them had been in serious trouble or if there were any serious injuries on the course. Water and Medics are two of the most important elements and I sure hope someone sees this and improves it for the next race.


Best Race of All

Jun 16, 2018 by Anthony Duncan

My friends and I completely agree that this was the best races we have attended. We have done Spartan, Battle Frog, Warrior Dash, etc. The reason we like this one was it was more of a race that pushed us and had great obstacles that were all not mud. The walls, apparatus, rope climb, monkey bars, etc are great to push us. We CrossFit and train for those type of obstacles and it makes it challenging and very fun. Many people like the mud apparently but I am not a fan of running miles while covered. Overall it was a great event. I hope they come back and it continues to grow. Not to mention much cheaper than the others.


not worth

Jun 12, 2018 by Billy Meres

very basic obstacle course, but that's ok. problem is with company. several weeks before event, my son found out he could not attend that day. I tried contacting company to found out how to transfer to another race since we do a few a year. this is now 2 weeks after race and still haven't heard a thing. only one food truck provided at race and it was fried food. absolutely no entertainment provided after race. and now we cannot get access to our action photos of the race that we were told we would get with registration fee. have tried contacting company again about photo, but no response. just very unhappy with the way things are handled. no customer service skills whatsoever. will not be running any obstacles with this company until they decide to treat us better and give us what we pay for. very unhappsy.


Can I Give a Negative Rating

May 22, 2018 by Kelli Grennan

I have asked this site to contact me NUMEROUS times. It says within 24 hours but I have never received a response. The race we signed up for, Vermont July 28th, no longer exists on the site and there has been no contact. Worst communication EVER!


The Ultimate Mud Run, Obstacle Race and Adventure Race Guide , USA 2.8 5.0 57 57 Terrain Race is NOT a Spartan Beast. Let's just accept that. That's why the minimum age limit to run is 7 with a parent. So we can't compare the obstacles in Terrain Race to Sparta
