RECOMMENDATIONS:
13 Tips for Mud Run Rookies

– Hydrate.
– Wear the appropriate shoes and clothes for the race.
– Bring food and beverages.
– Skip your Friday W.O.D and get some rest. You will need it.
– Choose your wave wisely.
– Pay attention on the course signs while running.
– Bring extra clothes and shoes. More supplies like bug spray and sunscreen lotion are strongly recommended.
– Bring CASH if you would like to get some D.R apparel or register for the race on site.

IMPORTANT RACE NOTE(S):

COMPETITIVE/ELITE participants:
You are required to complete every obstacle. If you fail to do so, you can try until you make it. If you give up, you will be disqualified from the race.

DIRT RUNNER XTREME (D.R.X) participants:
-You can run the course more than 2 times if your heart and body desires. D.R.X Challenge will test your strength, endurance, speed, and mental grit. A couple laps are not enough for some Dirt Runners. Can you prove of being D.R.X material? The fun starts at 9:00AM; Unfortunately, the shenanigans end at 3:00PM with the last wave/heat going out on the course. Teamwork is encouraged. If you can’t complete the obstacles, try again. If you can’t make it again, it’s alright just do 20 burpees and we are even. If you can’t do the penalty burpees, you will be disqualified from the race. No excuses needed.
-If you complete 3 laps and decide to NOT go for your 4th lap, you will get your finisher award medal. If you continue to the 4th lap and fail to complete the obstacles or the penalty burpees, you will be disqualified from the race and no finisher award medal will be given. It’s a gamble. Choose wisely.

D.R.X BLACK OPS participants:
This is a 24-hour wave. The D.R.X Black Ops will test your strength, endurance, speed, and mental grit to the extreme. It is open to athletes of all levels, and there are no formal entry requirements. If you want to push your limits to the extreme and you are a relentless warrior, then this is the ultimate challenge to conquer. Can you survive 24 hours? If you can’t complete the obstacles, try again. If you can’t make it again, it’s alright just do 10 burpees and we are even. Supply your own fuel and hydration supplies and camping gear.
Recommended camping gear: 2-4 Person Tent, Cold Weather Sleeping Bag, Thick Blanket, Tent Lamps/Lights, First Aid Kit, Camping Chair, Hand sanitize, Ear and Nose Drops, Anti-chafing cream, survival kit, swiss knife, fuel and hydration supplies.

Recreational/Open participants:
Teamwork is encouraged. Have fun and enjoy the run. Get your dirt on. Obstacles are optional. If you feel the obstacles are too hard help your teammates to overcome them.

***Anyone under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian present to sign the waiver (participant, or spectator). Aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends of the parents do not count. If a legal guardian cannot be present on day of event, the waiver must be signed by the legal guardian and notarized in advance.

SPECTATORS: Receive free entry passes, but you need to sign waivers before entering the event area.

PARKING is also free, we don’t nickel and dime you like the other guys.

NOTICE: Dirt Runner is located on an active Off Road Park. Our trail is marked very well and mostly separated from other trails, but it intersects/crosses motorcycle, ATV, and jeep trails at many points. When you sign our waiver, you accept the remote risk of a possible collision and injury.

Dirt Runner allows outside food and beverages, so everyone is encouraged to bring their own grills and make an all day picnic out of it.
