FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions Hurricane Mud Run

It this a relay race?

No.  Everyone will start at the starting line and finish at the finish line.

Do I need to do every obstacle?

NO! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ALL OF THE OBSTACLES.  Foregoing, passing by, walking around, forgetting to complete or all out refusal of an obstacle is perfectly acceptable. Granted, your friends may make fun of you, but we do ask that you NEVER feel pressured to complete or pass through an obstacle if you feel unsafe or physically unable.

Just how dirty do you get?

Welcome to club mud!  Expect to get muddy.  Very muddy.  Remember you can choose to go around any obstacle and this includes mud.  Some of our runners love to get as muddy as possible.  They will lay down in the pits and just soak in it.  Most people find that their shoes are destroyed.  Wear an old pair and plan to toss after the event.  Bring a pair of flip-flops for the drive home.  Wear clothes that you are not to concerned about.  While clothes wash the red dirt can permanently change colors.

Is this a family friendly event?
