- MUD FACTOR ADULT WAVES VS. MF KIDZ FAMILY WAVES

Mud Factor 5k Adult Wave Times

Mud Factor 5k adult waves are intended for participants ages 14 and up. While we recommend ages 14 & up, it's ultimately up to each parent whether or not their child under the age of 14 can participate. Anyone (including children of any age) must be registered in the appropriate "adult wave" time in order to access that specific wave time.

MF Kidz 3k Wave Times

The MF Kidz wave is a shortened running course (approx. 3k) with the same obstacles as the adult waves. MF Kidz Family waves are intended for children ages 4-13 to participate with or without their parents. Mud Factor allows parents to decide if your children are capable of running unattended. If your child is 14+ and you prefer for them to participate in the MF Kidz wave, that is also acceptable.

- WHAT TO BRING

Photo Identification

We verify your purchased event ticket against your photo identification. No other form of verification is available. You must have your Photo ID.

Waiver

A completed participant waiver is required for running the Mud Factor "Seriously Fun!" Mud Run. Download one via your cities event page or from the link  below.

Parking

Parking is $10 cash per vehicle. Motorcycles always park for free. You must park in our designated parking area only. No parking on streets or roads allowed. Absolutely no "walk-ins" from outside the event parking area will be permitted to participate in any Mud Factor event, no exceptions.

Extra Funds

Climbing obstacles and trudging through mud works up an appetite. Bring extra cash and get some refreshments or your very own Mud Factor merchandise!

Bag Check

Like a coat check, our bag check is available for participants to leave what they don’t want to hold onto while participating in the obstacle course for $5 cash. Mud Factor is NOT responsible for any items left anywhere, with anyone (including event volunteers / workers) outside of our Bag Check Tent.

Wash Off Station

We will have a wash off station with running water. Bring extra clothes, shoes, towels, etc. with you in your vehicle to change into. We also sell plastic car seat covers for $5 so you don't dirty up your car!

Get There Early!

You should arrive at least one hour before your wave time. The registrant on file must match a photo I.D. Checking in to the run requires a photo ID and completed participant waiver.

All registered runners will be issued a wave time specific bib assigned to your purchase.  Adult wave running bibs will allow you access to the course to run in a KIDZ Wave with a registered child, however, KIDZ Family Wave only bibs are not valid for adult wave running times.  You may change your wave time the day of the event at the venue.  See the header MAKING CHANGES for more details below

Check-in will remain open until 15 minutes before the last wave of the event.

MF Kidz Family Waves

A parent or guardian will pick up bibs for minors.  Your children do not need an I.D. for check-in. Everyone accessing the course needs to be a registered runner and have a runners bib.  No exceptions.

Parents may use their adult wave running bib in an MF KIDZ Family wave, or register in a KIDZ Family Wave only themselves to participate with or supervise their children.  Adults must be running with a child to participate in the KIDZ Family Waves.   Learn more about MF Kidz
