THE COURSE:
Don’t just read about it!  Check out the fun and obstacles from past mud runs.  Photos

Run, jump, and crawl through obstacles and mud.  This is a great course for both the seasoned mud runner and the newbie.  Nestled in the heart of the National Guard Armory at the Wilmington International Airport, this course is used for the Combat Mud Run and has been used by the military for training.  Our volunteers include active duty military, veterans, and ROTC!

THE 5K COURSE:  The 5K course offers just enough of a challenge for the athletic, but is friendly for participants looking to take on a mud run as a new challenge or prepare for those mud runs that have fire and electricity (no shocking here!).  Does one of the obstacles appear intimidating?  Don’t worry!  You can do 20 burpees instead of an obstacle.

THE MEATHEAD MILE COURSE: Needing more challenge?  The Meathead Mile course is the 5K with an extra mile of obstacles and running through rough terrain.

Here is what you can expect:  COURSE MAP
