*We encourage you to attend Pre-Packet Pickup in order to avoid long lines on event day. If you are not able to attend Pre-Packet Pickup there will be a $5 (CASH ONLY) same-day check in fee per registrant to check in on-site at the event. We do this in order to avoid long lines on event day and ensure everyone has enough time to enjoy the entire event.*We do allow people to pick up packets for other people (team member, family, friends). As long as their waiver has been signed online(generally done during registration) you will just need to present their confirmation email. That way, we know you have permission to get your friends’ stuff!
There may be a CASH ONLY parking charge of up to $20 collected by the venue
Muddy Dash is a few miles of fun. You can expect about a dozen Muddy Moments where, in order to move on, you’ll need to run, walk, crawl, wade, slip, or slide. Our Mud Experts will take you through the experience and you never know who you’ll encounter along the way. Mud pits won’t be any deeper than waist deep, so you don’t have to worry about actually swimming. Muddy Dash is all about having a good time; so you don’t have to worry about competition or timing. Costumes are always welcomed. From the moment you step off of the Start Line, until you cross the Finish, Muddy Dash will put a smile on the filthy faces of you and all of your muddy buddies.
You can check your gear for $5 (paid at the event). We will keep it clean while you get MUDDY.
The early waves fill up quickly, so be sure to register early if that’s your goal! Though, don’t worry if you can’t make it into those, because the later waves are just as fun. If you’re racing with friends, and are having a hard time getting into their wave, here’s a tip– Have them create a team on our registration website, and then you can register as a part of that team, which will automatically place you in the proper wave time! Neat, huh?
When the team captain registers, just have them create the team at that time, and the rest of the team will be able to join during registration. Super easy! Just make sure you register for the same wave time as your team. If your team wave time is sold out, contact customer service at [email protected]
While we strive to create an event that would be worthy of spectators enthusiastically paying to see it, we’re excited to say that there is NO CHARGE for spectators. That’s right– Your friends and family can all come watch your moment of triumph without paying a single cent to cheer you on as you cross the finish. They’ll have a great time watching you race, but they’re also fully welcome to enjoy themselves in the festival area as well. Who knows? If they’re really nice, they might even pick up your food and have it waiting at the finish line. (But hey, you’ve got to discuss that with them. See how much they love you, ya know?)
Had a great time on course, but still not ready to go home yet? Perfect! We’d love to hang out with you for a while. In our festival area, you’ll have plenty of chances to meet and interact with our various sponsors (many of whom have free stuff to give you!), eat plenty of delicious food in order to rebuild and refuel your body after what you put it through on the course, or just kick back with a beer and reminisce about how much fun you had during your race. There will be plenty of music, fellowship, and some fun competitions where you might be able to win some free merchandise or even a free race! Every day is a new adventure, so come out and see for yourself!
