Event description


Remember when you were a kid and you used to run around outside with your friends climbing trees, jumping in puddles, playing tag, and just plain having fun? Well Wilderness Warrior is simply an adult version of that! We build 8+ awesome obstacles for you and your friends to play on (like fire jumps, water slides, tire runs, and underground tunnels), put them in a 3-mile course.

This is an event that will bring the WHOLE FAMILY, together. Yep, we even have kids events. Not to mention LIVE MUSIC & FOOD TRUCKS.

Yeah, you'd be crazy to miss out on this!


Can I really do a mud run?

Um, yeah. In the immortal words of Patches O'Houlihan: “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball”. Let’s expand on that sound logic a bit: “If you can get from the start to the finish, you can complete a mud run.”

Basically, if you can walk approximately 3 miles in muddy clothes – you can complete your first mud run. It may not be pretty, but that first taste of victory is usually all it takes to turn your average couch potato into an addicted mud runner; that’s why this sport is ballooning to epic proportions with new events being added worldwide nearly every day.

How “in-shape” should I be?

Round is a shape, correct? It is suitable for most athletes of any size, shape and ability. Of course, it is required that you sign a waiver that you are healthy enough to participate, and maybe even have been checked out and cleared by a medical professional before attempting any event (if you have concerns). You will see a diverse array of fitness levels on display and body types from all over the fitness continuum. If you have the willpower to finish, there’s a spot for you at our starting line.

Do you have to be totally nuts to enjoy Mud Runs & Obstacle Races?

No, but it surely helps.

What should I wear to the event?

Whatever you want!

A word of warning about costumes – what you wear to the start line will be in tatters by the finish. If you start out with a tutu and angel wings, you’ll be dragging those sodden wings through every obstacle and mud pit and dealing with the chafing from your decorative tutu every step of the way. You may have looked cute & funny at the start line, but there’s a good chance you’ll look like a sewer rat at the finish line.

Costumes also fall way short on protecting the areas of your body that take the most abuse during an event: your elbows, knees, hands, forearms, shins and feet. We recommend a t-shirt with sleeves and pants/capris to protect knees and elbows, but feel free to wear anything you like!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

You must be at least 12 years old to compete at Wilderness Warrior. There is no maximum age limit on how old runners can be!

Spectators of all ages are allowed to attend and watch the event.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is provided, but transportation is provided by each individual. We highly recommend car-pooling if you're coming with freinds and family to save space in our parking area.

What can I bring into the event?

Can I compete with a team?

Absolutely, showing up on race day with a team is not only encouraged by race staff, it is a fantastic way to show that handsome guy from accounting that’s everyone is equal when they are adorned in muck. Seriously, participating with a team is extremely beneficial for first-timers as you have a built in cheering squad and support staff on every obstacle. Make sure you do your part for the group and help out as much as you get helped – or more. The best part about being in a team may be the awesome name, matching costumes or T-shirts!

If I can’t get over an obstacle, what can I do?

Let’s break it down into steps:

Step 1: Assess the obstacle before engaging; figure out its weaknesses and what elements of the barrier you can use. Are there stanchions or supports you could use to boost yourself up? Is one side easier to climb/descend/crawl through than the other?

Step 2: Watch other competitors and their success or failures and take notes – it also won’t hurt your karma if you help ‘em out and you just might get the same treatment from other competitors.

Step 3: Engage the obstacle and commit to conquering it; this means you use your momentum, strength and every bit of your mental fortitude to crush that obstacle. Every wall that you half-heartedly attempt to climb is a waste of your energy as you’ll have to try again after you fail.

Step 4: Didn’t tackle it? Follow steps 1-3 again, there may be a trick that you need to figure out in order to pass.

Step 5: If you’ve made it to this step and you’re still not past the obstacle, then you probably didn’t take the hint in step #2 about getting good karma by helping someone else – so go do it! Follow the Dirty Rule: “Do unto other mud racers as you would have them do unto you.” If you need to ask for help, then don’t be shy. Who knows, that person may need your help on the next obstacle, maybe they’ll even write you into their will in the event of a real zombie apocalypse – you’ll never know unless you ask.

Step 6: Hi… you’re still here? OK, this would be a good time to chalk this obstacle up to “I’ll get it next time” and bypass it carefully. IAs you pass, take one last look at that menacing barrier between you and immortality and vow to yourself that you will one day emerge victorious. Now, wipe that mud off your face and soldier on to the next obstacle!
