FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What if I’m not “in shape”? Can I still participate in this run?
Our run is fun, yet challenging. You in no way need to be a fitness guru to be able to participate, walking the course is COMPLETELY acceptable! Just know there are obstacles and inclines that you’ll need to be able to get through. You are the best judge of what your body can do.
What is the age limit?
Not only do we have our 5k, but we have our Mini Mudder (about a mile long), which is great for small children and elderly participants.
What should I wear?
This is truly a matter of opinion. Some people like to wear costumes and matching team shirts, some wear their usual workout clothing…some wear tutus! Wear what you can get through the mud in. We suggest snug fitting clothing, preferably something that wicks away moisture from the skin. GOOD SHOES! Some swear by wrapping your shoes in duct tape, (yes, people have lost shoes in the mud pits.)
Should I bring water?
We do offer water stations, and in some cases, you’ll need both hands free to get through an obstacle.
What does my registration fee get me?
The first 1000 registrants will get their own Rockin’ the Desert Mud Run T-Shirt, finisher’s medal, number bib, timing chip…and don’t forget…memories of splashin’ through the mud that’ll last a lifetime!
