Conquer YOUR terrain! You can generally expect about 3 miles of mud, walls, ropes, monkey bars, and 15+ other examples of anything we are able to fit into the unique terrain of each venue we visit.
Get ready to jump, climb, navigate, roll and even crawl your way through about 3 miles of mother nature, mud and some of the best obstacles you'll ever face! Kids as young as 7-years-old can race the 5k course and there's a Mini Monkey course for even younger kids.
Each participant will get:
This does not include any purchased merchandise. This can be picked up at the race. Just jump ahead to the preorder line at our Terrain Race store and pick up your gear!
There will also be a slick after party with additional food and beverages for purchase as well as our great announcer and music! And if one shirt isn’t enough, we’ll have a store packed full of shirts, hoodies, shorts, socks, flip flops, and just about everything you need for a new set of clothes since yours are too dirty!
You can race solo or with friends, it’s up to you. Teammates don’t have to signup at the same time, just make sure everyone joins the team BEFORE race day.
Athletes must at least be 14 years old to race solo. Young athletes 7-13 years old may compete on the 3 mile course if they’re accompanied by a parent. Any athletes younger than 18 need to bring a parent or legal guardian on race day to sign a waiver.
There is a Little Monkey race after the last adult wave at most venues for kids of any age. Read the details for the location you want to go to.
You will need an ID OR your Check-In Sheet no matter your age to pick up your race packet. Please bring a school issued ID card if you don’t have a drivers license. Parents will need to show an ID as well when they sign a waiver for any minors.
Please find Instructions below to transfer your registration to wave time. You may only transfer to a wave that is not SOLD out!
Sorry, I don’t think they really want you on their team! Just kidding, this is easy to update too!!! Ask the Team Captain to follow the steps to Reset My Team Password in the other FAQ.

No. Any water that you may need to cross will be no more than 3’-4’ deep and will have lifeguards on duty. Duck floaties are accepted if you need them. Some venues might have slightly deeper water, but we always make it so you can get around anything that would require swimming.
EVERYTHING will get muddy, so make sure you don’t wear your favorite running attire.
We suggest wearing:
We recommend athletic clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, really dirty. Our pro team wears MudGear Compression Obstacle Race Socks, Icebug shoes with an awesome tread, and Xracewear apparel. Xracewear makes shorts and tops that hold your bib number so you don’t need safety pins. For those looking to crush the course, visit them for great shoes, gloves, shirts, socks and other outdoor performance apparel.
Because we know how awesome our athletes are, we do have medical teams and course personnel roaming the course at all times in addition to the medical tent at the finish line.
If you do get hurt, and are around an obstacle, there will be a volunteer or a medic there that has direct communication with the event directors and we can send one of our course medical teams to your location. If you are not around an obstacle, please tell a fellow athlete to let the next obstacle volunteer or medical teams know and we’ll get help to you ASAP.
Yes, every event will have aid stations along the course with water only. You may need to bring your own energy gels and food, but water will be available approximately every 1 mile on the course.
Really? You’re worried about getting wet? Our races will continue if it’s raining, snowing, or whatever! We do everything we can to put on a race in nasty weather but if athlete safety or the venue is threatened by the weather, we may have to cancel. Sorry, there are no refunds due to weather.
It depends how hard core you are! Our races are 5k but are WAY more fun and will take longer than your normal race. Just add 20-30 minutes onto your normal 5k race time.
Because of the nature of event planning, all entry fee payments are non-refundable and all sales are final. We have several options:
Your entry can be transferred to a friend or to a new race though! Follow the steps above to transfer your entry to someone else. Follow the steps on our FAQ page and you or a friend can still use the entry.
