Horrible and cheap mud run

Aug 22, 2021 by Ryan
Event Name: Columbus GA 2021 

It was a 1.5 mile run that they had you run twice. Very little mud and mostly sand the only real mud pit was towards the end. Not a pleasant run in the sand. Everyone I talked to had no complements about it. Parking was at a lady's home who was nice enough to offer runners her hose because their 'wash' station was barely functional. The medal for the finish is a cheap plastic one with the wrong year stamped on it. For the price (80 dollars "55 ticket +20 parking +5) I would not recommend it. Iv paid 30 dollars for way better runs.

Event Name: Anchorage AK 2021 

The event they held in Anchorage 2021 was totally not worth it. At a 50$ price tag they also forced you to pay $20 just to park at the event (a public park, mind you) and then the 5k course was really a 2.5k course that you "had" to go through twice. The park has acres and acres of space and tens of trails, so this by itself was quite the let down. The obstacles were safe and consistent with what was advertised, but in the end very underwhelming, especially because you repeat them. Also worth mentioning is that the people working the slip-n-slide at the "end" did not understand that in order for you to be able to slide down it, there needs to be constant water flowing down, not a couple sprays of the hose every few minutes. I won't recommend their events to anyone.


They deprive you of water and humanity

Jul 15, 2021 by Alonzo

Please have the decency to give out free water especially for children-they have an increased eisk for heat stroke and dehydration. Not everybody is prepared to bring cash with them. Consider the 20 dollar parking fee, 10 dollar spectator fee and the 50.dollars just to so the obstacle course. No human should take advantage of the wellbeing of another human especially a "fun" company. Be gracious to your neighboor and provide water at least.


Expensive, poorly organized and potentially dangerous

Jul 12, 2021 by Eric
Event Name: Tri-Cities Washington, July 2021 

I attended the Tri-Cities, WA event in July 2021 and I have to say that as my first mud run, this was really disappointing. First off, it's EXPENSIVE. $65 per person, with $20 parking and $5 bag checks and very little included swag (bandanna and cheap temporary tattoo that falls off right away, and a cheap medal at the end that had the wrong year).

In terms of organization, I don't think they actually limit ticket sales to what the event location can handle. They ran out of parking and we had to wait while they figured that out, and the course was really crowded. This overcrowding on the course led to some very dangerous obstacles like a slip and slide where people were being encouraged to go down before the people at the bottom were safely out of the way. Another obstacle was a tall cargo net on a metal frame being sprayed down with water, making for another significant hazard. The first wave started WAY too late in the day (started at 11am, which meant it was already in the high 90s) and the mud was pretty sad since they didn't start wetting the course until around the time they started running. Also, the July timing for this event doesn't make sense given the potentially dangerously high summer temps in the area. There was only one water station on the course, and no first aid for injuries other than an onsite ambulance halfway through the course. Shockingly poor planning, I'll be avoiding these guys in the future.


Fun Event

Nov 26, 2019 by William Duncan

Attended Mud Factor in Escondido with my family and we all had a really good time. Plenty of mud, obstacles were not intimidating and the overall it seemed very organized. The MC was funny and very interactive, he had us all dancing and he kept the energy going all day. It was my families first mud run so we can't really compare it to others but all in all we had a great time.


Stay away from Mud Factor

Oct 28, 2019 by Sophie Jamet

This race has no interest and is poorly organized. For the price of admission you basically get nothing. It is a 2.5 K obstacle course that you run twice ! Very few and repetitive obstacles, quite boring ! Total waste of time and money !


Super Fun Day

Mud mud and more mud! My girls and I had so much fun, the slide was the best part for us. Very cool finisher medal as well!


Fantastic event

Participated at the Mud Factor in Anchorage last weekend with the family, we all had a great time. The event was well organized and the slide at the end was definitely a highlight. The finisher medal was very cool! Thank you Mud Factor!

Don't waste your money

This was by far the worst event I've ever paid for. For the price of admission you basically get nothing. On top of that, it is falsely advertised as a 5K obstacle course. It is a 2.5 K obstacle course that you repeat twice or more if you sign up as a family. Total waste of time. No shade to wait under. Obnoxious loud music in the waiting/confinement area. Save your money, this race is not cheap and you'll be glad you did.
