What should I wear?
Wear clothing appropriate for physical activity or what you’d wear going to the gym. Consider the elements you’ll be dealing with (mud (duh), water obstacles, and weather/temperature). It is recommended (not required) that you bring gloves for the rope obstacles, as rope burn may occur. It is also recommended that you bring a change of clothes, and towels for clean-up. Depending on weather, it may be cold and not comfortable to stick around in wet clothes.
How is the course layed out, what should I expect?
The course begins with a flat land run transitioning into the obstacle course. There you will be challenged by tube crawls, over-under logs, hill climbs, tires, balance logs, an A frame climb, rope swing, a wall climb, cargo net climb, more logs & tubes, under wire crawl, ropes over a pond, water obstacles, and plenty of mud.
How will the race waves be structured?
Race day waves will be structured by experience level based on your personal 5k run times. There will be a total of four starting waves. The first wave begins at 12:30pm for our fastest and most experienced competitors. Waves 2, 3, and 4 will start in five minute increments following wave 1.
