Course Description:

Obstacles on the course include:
Mud Hills
Traverse up and over a series of muddy hills until you’re fully coated in mud. Watch out for the water pits!
Sugar Cookie
First get wet by fully submerging yourself in our dunk tanks, then get sandy by low crawling through a sand pit under barbed wire. The only thing this obstacle is lacking is an oven.
Birth Canal
America was born on hard work and perseverance. This obstacle tests both. Descend tunnels into a covered mud pit, wade across the pit, and squeeze yourself out the other side. Happy Birthday!
Great American Mud Pit
Low crawl through water, mud, and barbed wire in our infamous mud pit.
The Orgeon Trail
Blaze this trail while carrying a weighted object. (Donkeys not permitted)
Continental Divide
East meets West at our signature 8’ Wall climb.
The Campfire
A favorite American pastime – only you have to jump over this fire.
Route 66
Travel across, over, and through a series of hanging and low lying tires.
Cargo Net
Climb up and over our 15’ cargo net.
Mt. McKinley
Summit this vertical obstacle by using a rope and maybe a little help from a friend.
Monkey Bars
Found on every playground across America – see if you still have it in you to make it across
Hi/Low Rope Traverse
Use two ropes to traverse a mud pit.
You’ll be screaming “Geronimo” as you swing across a mud pit while dangling from a rope.


In order to qualify for an award you must register for an elite wave. The Great American Mud Run awards the top 3 participants of each division.


We also have the Great American Mud Run awards
The most patriotic costume contest – The more red, white, and blue the better. Patriotic costume contests will occur throughout race day and will be determined by audience applause.


Free! The Great American Mud Run does not charge spectator fees at this time. We encourage you to bring all of your family and friends to share in The Great American Mud Run experience.


Parking will be available onsite and costs $10 per vehicle, cash only.


The Great American Mud Run is a proud supporter of Wounded Wear. Those participants who raise $100 or more for this great cause will receive a commemorative “Wounded Wear Patriot” t-shirt on race day. Click here to learn more.

In order to compete, participants must be 14 years or older on race day. All participants 18 years and younger must have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver for them.

We use the best timing company in the U.S. to time and score our events. Each participant will be given a chip and wristband at packet pick-up. You will secure this chip to your wrist using the wristband. There are mats at the start and finish that will record your start and finish time when crossed.

The Great American Mud Run is designed to be as challenging as you want it to be. With that said, if you get to an obstacle that you are unable or unwilling to complete you can simply skip it and continue on the course. However, if you’re registered in an elite wave you will be required to complete all obstacles.

A gear check will be available for small personal items such as keys, wallets, etc. We ask that all participants leave their large bags and extra clothing in their cars.

Once you’ve completed the Great American Mud Run and have taken your post race photos we provide showers for you to rinse off all that Great American mud.


No teams, but The Great American Mud Run encourages all participants to register with groups. The Great American Mud Run experience is better if it’s shared with friends, family, and coworkers.
