Frequently Asked Questions:
1) I am new to the racing world and am concerned that I may not be able to complete some of the obstacles. Are all obstacles mandatory? Or, can a person go around (ex: swinging vines/climbing wall them if they can't accomplish it?
Absolutely! We encourage you to complete the obstacles but we will not push you past your comfort zone. If you feel more comfortable bypassing the obstacle you are welcome to do so as long as you continue to have fun!
2) Can we register as a team or do we have to register individually?
We ask that everyone registers individually so that we get everyone's risk and release forms that they sign during the registration process. While registering you can choose to be on a team, just make sure you pick the right team name.
3) Can I transfer my race entry to another person? If yes, how do I do that?
Absolutely! Give us a call or send us an email with the name of the individual you would like to transfer your registration to and we can get it all done for you.
4) Can team members start at different times?
Of course! The results will not be totaled until the end of the race, so your teammates can run at separate times if they choose. They can watch you and cheer you on, or race with you and help you scale the huge walls!
5) How old do I have to be to volunteer?
We require that our volunteers be over the age of 15 to help us.

Not exactly. Although those events are great, WonderMud is different.

We also feature local food vendors to make this day as community oriented as possible.
