Frequently Asked Questions and other race information

What is Mud Crusade?

Mud Crusade is an adventure obstacle mud race event that will challenge you physically and give you a thrilling experience. The event allows you to run individually, or run with a group of friends, family, or co-workers. The courses are designed to allow each participant to challenge themselves to their mental and physical limits.

What kind of obstacles are at a Mud Crusade event?

You will have to run, crawl, climb, balance, and slide your way to the finish line.  Our course will take you through water, mud, fire, ropes, barbed wire, tunnels…..those are probably enough hints for you. There will be some obstacles available at only certain venues that are specific to the terrain.  Since this is a mud race event…..think about it… are going to get dirty.    Nothing wrong with a little (or maybe a lot) of good, clean, dirty fun !!

Can I skip an obstacle?

Yes.  We recommend skipping any obstacle that you do not believe you can safely complete by going around the obstacle. 

What if I can't swim?

Seriously ? can’t swim ?......lessons dude.   No water on any of the courses is deeper than four feet.  All participants have an available route to go around any obstacle they are not comfortable going on or in. 

What do I get with my entry fee?
  • A Mud Crusade T-Shirt 
  • A Custom Mud Crusade Finisher's Medal
  • Mud Crusade racer bib
  • Chip Timing for competative racers

What do I receive prior to Race Day?

You will receive an email confirmation of your registration, as well as, important email updates as your race approaches.

You will receive your race packet the day of the race.

What time do I arrive on Race Day?

You should probably plan to arrive 1 ½ hours before your scheduled race heat.  This will give you time for any unforeseen traffic delays.  Arriving early will also give you time to hydrate, and check out what the vendors are selling or giving away at the event.

Do spectators pay for admission?

That’s the worst idea we’ve ever heard.  We encourage you to bring everyone you can think of along.  Tell them to bring cameras and video recorders too, because this is something you are going to want evidence of. 

Do I have to pay extra for the post-event party?

No. The post-event party is free for all participants and spectators.

Do you offer refunds?

We’re not big fans of people who chicken out, so sorry, no refunds.

Can I transfer my registration to another person?

Yes.  All transfers must be completed at least three weeks prior to the event.  Contact Customer Service for any transfer requests.

Yes. You can get a discount by registering early or registering as a team of four or more.  Groups of four or more, use discount code: saveteam4

Can I bring my own food and alcohol?

No. You are not allowed to bring your own food or alcohol on-site.

What should I wear?

Anything you want, but unfortunately no streakers. You’re choice really. Any type of running apparel will work just fine.  Any outrageous costume will get the job done too. We suggest trail running shoes or sneakers.  Remember, whatever you wear is going to get a complimentary coat of mud and water placed all over it.

Will there be showers?

The venue will have a cleaning station for you to be able to wash off the days' dirt.
