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.
You are required to run with your bib number and will not be allowed on the course without it. This is used for identification purposes as well as the race photos.
The Del Mar Mud Run is for ages 13 and up.
There is a rinse off area and private changing areas for males and females.

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!


Participants can sign up as an individual or as part of a team!
