Non-Competitive Event Rules For All Age Groups


Participants may wear shorts.


Shoes covering the entire foot (not sandals) are required for all participants. You must wear shoes for the entire course, including the finish line. You will be asked to leave the course if you are not wearing both shoes. We also suggest shoes that cover the ankle as there may be genuine mud bogs (not just muddy water) that will suck your shoes right off if they are not secured.

Change of Clothes

You and your clothes are going to get muddy. We will have water to clean off, but please bring a clean change of clothes. Mud will get everywhere. Your race clothes will probably be ruined. Shoes too.

Feet First

No diving into any obstacles. Feet first only!

Obey Directions

Obey the directions of race officials and volunteers on the course.

Wait Your Turn

This is a race to each obstacle. That means if there are any lines or backups at an obstacle, you must wait in the line until your turn.

With that said, we’ve taken measures to minimize the probability of lines at the obstacles. Therefore, we hope we’ve designed the obstacles and course to avoid bottlenecks. Additionally, the obstacle officials have been trained to close any obstacles that are causing large delays or have become dangerous.

Friends Helping

As long as they are the same age and in the same age wave, friends are permitted to assist each other through obstacles.

Be Nice

No hostile contact or interference with other participants.

Use Clean Language

No profanity or lewd behavior; there will be kids as young as 2 years old participating in the event.

Thank Volunteers

They’re working hard. Thank at least 3 volunteers for helping make this race a success!
