Want to become a Hero, but don't want to race? Volunteering at our events lets you be part of the action – and we definitely need some Heroes to put on the best events possible! Email or click here to be taken to our Volunteer page.


Mud Hero encourages, and doesn’t charge spectators, by providing easy access and great vistas to view the course. Dogs are allowed, but must be on a leash and cleaned up after.

Get down and dirty together

The only thing better than getting muddy by yourself is getting muddy with your buddies.

Everyone in your group is individually timed. As long as you all sign up for the same wave time, you're good to go. But hurry, popular waves sell out early.

6 km  - 15+ obstacles - challenging yet fun
Mud Hero’s course will get your adrenaline and blood pumping, while announcers, music and zany obstacles make this course like no other.
