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. 1.86 miles) 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.

Effective 4/02/2021, we have attempted to simplify the process to make changes to your existing registration online; therefore,  information may differ from what is published elsewhere.

You may transfer your registration to someone else, change your running (wave) time, or switch to another Mud Factor location or future event date by re-registering for the event using a voucher code provided by Mud Factor after initiating a change request.  There is an additional fee and specific deadlines to facilitate any changes.  

DEADLINES for online changes:

Switching registrants (transfer) or changing your wave time online must be completed at least 7 days prior to the event date to allow Mud Factor staff to process the request and forward a voucher code.
