What’s this MudManX thing all about???
MudManX is no ordinary mud run. It’s a challenge of physical strength and stamina as well as mental and spiritual willpower. An obstacle course that will transport the participant to the days of early Mankind struggling to overcome the Elements of Nature…Earth, Wind, Fire & Water! MudManX is an event to embrace our primitive origin.
Through time we’ve battled the Elements for survival. We faced what Mother Nature bestowed upon us and overcame. MudManX is a celebration of Life! Do you have what it takes to CONQUER THE ELEMENTS???

What should I wear?
You will get dirty! Wear clothes, or better yet, a fun costume you don’t mind getting a little mud on. We recommend a good trail running shoe. Work out gloves can be helpful. If you don’t have a pair, we sell them on site. Some runners like to protect their contacts with swim goggles. Also, it’s not a bad idea to have a towel, paper bag or old newspapers to sit on for the drive home!
There will be a shower area after the race to rinse off all the dirt and mud.
Are there TEAM discounts?
Definitely! It’s a simple fact that running with friends or family is just more fun. There’s also no escape from the laughter you’ll get when you take a header in the mud! We encourage all participants to create or join a team and even offer incentives! Email us at: email@example.com and request your Team Discount Code. (**Teams must consist of at least 4 people to qualify for a discount code. Teams with less than 4 runners on race day will owe the difference of the discount amount.)
Is this a timed race?
Chip timing is available to all runners who register for one of our “First Trax” waves. First Trax are the initial few waves of the day and offer our competitive athletes a clear trail with little or no obstacle wait times. You will also experience a pristine course with obstacles that are not yet covered in mud from the thousands of MudManX’ers who follow in later waves. Finally, you’ll be in the running for prizes offered to our top athletes! There is an additional $10 entry fee for First Trax waves which goes toward the prize pool.

What is packet pick up?
Packet pick-up is where all participants must “check in” and pick up their packet. Packets include your race bib number with safety pins and your chip timer for all those who registered in a First Trax wave. Race packets and materials must be picked up on-site during race day. They will not be shipped to participants. Please arrive at least 1 hour prior to your start time to allow time for parking and check-in.
Where can I keep my stuff secure during the race?
MudManX supplies a free bag check area on site at each race. It will be located right past the Check-In tents. Please keep your loose belongings (wallet, ID, etc) in a bag for us to check.
So where do we park and how do we get there?
MudManX will send a pre-race email out to all registered runners and spectators approximately 1 week before race day. It will contain all pertinent information needed, including directions and parking locations.
What happens if it rains on race day?
Even better! It’s all part of conquering the elements! More mud!
Do you accept mail-in entries?
Online registrations only. We only offer race day registrations if the event is not completely sold out.
Is there an age limit for registration?
MudManX is open to participants 14 years old and older.
Can I get a refund?
Sorry, no refunds under any circumstances. In the unfortunate and rare event that a cancellation or postponement occurs, MudManX will allow for a transfer of your registration to another race.
Why don’t any Obstacle Race companies allow refunds?
Your registration fee goes directly toward creating the best day of you life. Leasing land and building the actual course and festival areas, fees for vendors and contractors, insurance, donations, etc., are all prepaid and unrecoverable. Race Directors do this because we’re all insanely passionate about obstacle racing and love the sport as much as you do. We never want to see a race get cancelled or postponed for any reason, but we all have a monetary stake in each event and together share in it’s success or rare cancellation.
