What You Get / What's Included:

  • Goodie bag
  • Entry into MudFest post-party


Course Description:

The course is designed to test your running, wading, jumping, climbing and balance skills throughout the mud intensive course! The multiple obstacles have been designed to provide a challenging and fun course for people of all ages!


$9. Just like when you attend the Del Mar Fair or the racetrack, there’s a separate fee for parking. We tried to get this cost included for the Mud Run but we were unable to pull it off – the parking lot is managed separately and there are various other events occurring the same day. It pains us to say, but there is a $9 cost per car to park at the Del Mar Fairgrounds/Race Track complex. Furthermore, they only accept cash (yes….only the green stuff). WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE CARPOOLING to reduce your per-person cost (plus it’s good for the environment!) And please remember to bring cash so the lines move fast!

Post Party:

Del Mar Mud Run MudFest! Live music, great food & beer. Vendor Village.


We issue each participant a timing chip that is attached to your shoe lace. The chip is encoded with your name, race number and other information and allows us to quickly and accurately determine your race time.

Please plan on arriving at the fairgrounds at least 1 hour prior to your race start time to park and get your bag checked in. Traffic will be heavy that day so please leave extra early and carpool if possible.

This event is proudly benefitting CAF, Challenged Athletes Foundation's® (CAF) Operation Rebound® program. This is the premier sports and fitness program for American military personnel, veterans and first responders with permanent physical disabilities. It provides unparalleled opportunities to pursue active, athletic lifestyles by offering access to funding for equipment and training and competition expenses, Military Medical Center Physical Training (MMCPT) and sports clinics.

A few things to keep in mind before you hit the mud...
Mud likes to steal your shoes via suction so please ensure that you have boots or a style of shoe that covers the ankle. Some participants will use duct tape over their running shoes to keep them on their feet.
Loose clothes will slow you down especially if you have pockets that will hold water and mud!
We highly encourage costume-wearing to make it even more fun!
A bag check will be available prior to the race for keys, wallets, cell phones, etc.
A change of clothes and a few towels for post race cleanup is highly recommended unless you are riding in someone else’s car…then don’t worry about it!
Please note: The Del Mar Mud Run is not responsible for any items lost on the course during the race, so please do not wear any valuable items, like jewelry.

Camping Info:

RV’s must arrive on Friday if they want to park in our RV lot. RV spaces are $30 per space/night & spaces are 1st come 1st serve. If the fairgrounds get an RV on Saturday they have an alternate location to park, however it is not in the start line area & may not be as much fun. Due to other shows taking place at the event space, we expect the RV spaces to be very full. Please plan accordingly.
