Two courses! 5K (3.1 mile) 18 plus obstacles. 10K (6.2) mile, 30+ obstacles. Both courses are Military Style Obstacle Course for runners 12 years and older. Runners under the age of 18 must have waiver signed by an adult and must be accompanied by an adult during the entire race.


There are approximately 18-20 obstacles to overcome along the 3.1 Mile course and approximately 25-30 obstacles to overcome along the 6.2 Mile course, most of which contain water and mud. 

The best part of The Original Mud Run is getting dirty. And the only way to do that is to come clean. With that in mind we are willing to reveal some of the obstacles that you will experience along that way designed to make sure you find mud in places that ... well you get the picture. Without being too revealing, as you will see we still have few skeletons in our closet too, here is a preview of some our dirty little secrets, as well as some muddy tips on how to overcome them. But the only way to truly understand is to register and get dirty with us first hand!

All COMPETITION Categories (teams and individuals BUT NOT DGAP which is the fun run division) will be wearing “boots and utes”-combat boots and camouflage utility trousers or long pants (no tights). All COMPETITION Category Participants MUST wear BOOTS that cover the ankle and loose-fitting pants, cargo pants or sweat-pants. COMPETITION CATEGORIES ARE ONLY 10K...THERE IS NO COMPETITION 5K!!!!!!! If you don't like that, run in the fun run called the DGAP division any attire goes (we suggest boots and pants since terrain is rough) and course is basically the same.

Unauthorized attire in COMPETITION DIVISIONS will result in participant’s removal from the competition. Required race attire in COMPETITION Divisions is for the safety of all participants competing at a much faster pace, a leveling of the playing field and is more conducive to the rough nature of the obstacles along the course. Expect everything you wear to be covered in mud and water by the end of the race. Bring extra clothes and a towel! All DGAP participant are highly encouraged to wear the same attire as the COMPETITION groups but there is no requirement to do so for participation.

DGAP is also the CRAZY COSTUME division and there are no requirements to complete all obstacles if a participant does not feel inclined to do so. There are NO DGAP TEAMS..... OFFICIALLY. DGAP is an Individual entry but you can all run together and "call yourself" a team of any size or gender combination. If you want to run with friends in DGAP...register for the same start time!
