7:30am Elite Men
7:45am Elite Women
8:00am - 9:15am Confirmed Start Time Waves
9:30am Open Waves Begin

Starting at 7:30am, waves of 250+ racers will be released every 15 minutes. You will receive an email approximately one week before the race with your race times. Make a note of this time as it tells you what heat you are running in on race day. YOUR exact start time in the group you registered for will be posted under the Race Day tab a few days prior to the events date.

ARRIVAL


Plan to arrive 1.5 hours BEFORE your designated start time to allow enough time to pick up your packet, drop your stuff at bag check, and get warmed up. If you are one of those chronically late people, tell yourself you need to be there 2 hours early. If you’re an early bird, registration opens at 6:30am on Saturday.

WAIVERS AND IDs


All racers, spectators, and volunteers MUST sign a waiver (above) and show a valid photo ID upon arrival. Be sure to bring a copy of your signed waiver and hand it to one of our awesome volunteers in the registration tent. We try to have copies of waivers available, but save yourself some time, print it here and bring it with you on race day. We cannot release bibs without a signed waiver for each participant.

BIB PACKET PICKUP


Bib numbers are available the week of the race & will be posted under the Race Day tab a few days prior to the events date. On race day, make sure you know your bib number as this will be used to locate your bib packet - this will include your headband, bib, timing chip and most importantly, FREE drink ticket! 

WHAT TO BRING


Along with your ID, waiver, parking cash and knowing your bib #, bring your friends and family - or anyone else who needs proof of your badassness and obstacle course skills or someone who needs a demonstration of your mud flinging abilities. Don't forget your money for parking and fun! You should probably bring a towel and some extra clothes because your clothes will get muddy and wet, but you probably already guessed this.

NOTE: Outside food and drink WILL NOT be allowed into the venue, so make sure to leave it at home or in your car! Same with pets, no pets please.

BAG CHECK


Try and leave as much stuff as you can at home or in your car— but for the stuff you can't leave behind, or that you don't want covered in mud and water, we will have a secure place to check in your gear. Check in is $5/bag – you will get a wrist band to wear that matches the band we put on your bag so make sure you keep that safe.

WHAT TO WEAR


We said "adventure" right? Well folks let's get adventurous! There’s no dress code, per se, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, crawling under barbed wire and jumping fire. So choose wisely my friends.

FINISHERS RECEIVE


For starters, yes, you will be getting your badge of honor, the one-of-a-kind, bragging rights of your badass finishers medal (if you want to really bling it out, have it personalized using our partner site, iTab – they can get this all set for you. You’ll also get a quality race t-shirt (yes, more bragging rights) and shortly after the event, you’ll get your own professional photo and video to prove your badassness (see Photos and Videos section for more on that)

PHOTOS & VIDEO


Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! We don’t stop there – we are proud of your accomplishment, too, so you will also receive an online video with some additional proof, also free of charge. You don’t have to stay up all night checking the site for this – we’ll email you when both photos and videos are ready!

EDIT/ TRANSFER REGISTRATION


Depending on how many racers we have, we try to accommodate date and/or time transfers. If you have questions about a scenario unique to you, please visit our Contact Us page to touch base.
