WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR?

To maintain course safety, we are now starting in 4 waves. Individuals will start in the first two waves, and will be able to choose which wave during the registration process. Awards and results will be based on the fastest times from either wave 1 or wave 2, Teams (except Mixed teams) will start in the 3rd wave. Mixed teams will start in the 4th wave Waves will be 10 minutes apart.
NOTE: If you’re an individual, once you select your wave start, we’re unable to accommodate a wave change. Thank you!

You can now pickup your race numbers and commemorative t-shirts (as well as for friends and family) at our Packet Pickup “Mud Splash” Parties the Thursday and Friday before each weekend’s event. If you aren’t able to come to the party, you can have your race number mailed to you ahead of time for a $10 fee. You’ll then pickup your t-shirt with your race number on race morning.

For the best event experience, we encourage you to avoid the race morning crowd to pickup your race numbers and t-shirts on Thursday or Friday! While this pickup is not mandatory, we highly recommend it. As an individual participant, we ask that you bring a valid ID with you, and if under 18, a parent or legal guardian is present. The only other opportunities are to receive your race materials on race morning or by signing up for the $10 mailer.

NOTE: You may pickup for family and friends at packet pickup with their permission. Bring a copy of their ID, download the event waiver, and bring this signed waiver with you to pick up their packet. Teams will need a signed waiver from all 5 team members in order to pickup their team’s numbers (no ID’s required for teams). We’re sorry, but there are no exceptions – no waiver(s), no pickup.

Again, as an individual participant, we ask that you bring a valid ID with you, and if under 18, a parent or legal guardian is present.

Also new: Chip timing!

Download the waiver for packet pickup of friends and family. Remember: if you’re picking up for individuals, you’ll need a photocopy of their ID – no exceptions! Team captains can pickup for the entire team with their team members’ 5 signatures.

WHERE AND WHEN ARE THE MUD SPLASH PACKET PICKUPS?

Packet pickups are the Thursday and Friday from 5 pm – 8 pm before each weekend’s event(s). You can pickup on the Thursday or Friday if you are entered in that weekend’s event. Packet pickups are located at the South Mesa Club, 202850 San Jacinto Rd., Camp Pendleton (just inside the main gate of the base – super easy and quick to get to!).

Directions to the packet pickups: I-5 North to Camp Pendleton exit or I-5 South to Harbor Drive exit. Enter the Camp Pendleton main gate. Once on base, make your first right at Wire Mountain Road. Make a left on San Jacinto Road and the club will be on your left. Course talks will also be taking place at 6:00 pm, 6:45 pm, and 7:30 pm.

You can pickup your race number and t-shirt on race morning, however, be prepared for long lines at both!

HOW DO I REGISTER?

Registration for the World Famous® Mud Run is through online registration only – there is no mail-in entry forms accepted for this event. Please CAREFULLY select the event date you would like to run at the top of this page.

Entry fee is $58 per person. All team members must register together. REGISTER EARLY – each event day will be capped at 6,300 participants for each day and sells out early each year, sometimes within hours of the January 1st midnight opening.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY REGISTRATION WENT THROUGH?

We utilize active.com for our online registration processing. You will be receiving a confirmation email once your registration is successful. This will indicate which day you registered for, as well as if you bought a VIP package or opted for the mailer. If you do not receive a confirmation email from active.com after your register, please contact them directly at 1-877-228-4881 or support@active.com. They are available Monday-Friday 7 am -5 pm PST.

IF I CHANGE MY MIND, CAN I SWITCH EVENT DATES, SWITCH MY ENTRY TO SOMEONE ELSE?

Individual entries are non-transferable – you cannot transfer your entry to another individual and you are the only one who can use this entry. Also, entries are non-transferable between event dates. Make sure you are registering for the event day that you wish, as no individual changes can be made after you have registered online.

However, in order to maintain the number of 5-person teams in this event, we do allow team member substitutions. You can make the substitution by having your new member sign the downloadable waiver. This is all you need to do to make a team member substitution. There is no charge for a team member substitution.

Sorry, but there are no exceptions to these rules and we appreciate your support.

WHAT IS THE COURSE LIKE?

The Mud Run is a challenging 10K run with hills, tire obstacles, river crossings, two 5-foot walls with mud on both sides, tunnel crawl, slippery hill climb, and the final 30-foot mud pit. Along the course there will be 6 water points with our race staff and medical personnel staged at each, so you will be fully supported throughout the event. Click here to view the course map. Race individually military or civilian, within your age division, or as a member of a 5-person team. Choose the Open category with no restrictions on attire and footwear, or the Boots and Utilities category, which requires regulation military boots and utility trousers. There is a 2 hour 45 minute time limit on the completion of the course.

WHAT ARE THE RULES?

Number one rule: Have fun! The course and all obstacles must be successfully completed to qualify for awards. Teams are minimum/maximum 5 participants. All team members must cross the finish line together for the team to qualify for awards. Sorry, there are no race refunds and race numbers are non-transferable. Minimum age for participation is 13 years old. We are sorry, but no dogs are allowed on the course or in the Filthy Fun Fest venue.

HOW DO I BECOME A TEAM CAPTAIN?

Gather each team members information (date of birth, street address, email) and register your entire team together online.
Click here for the team member downloadable waiver that you can bring with you to packet pickup. Make sure all your current team members sign the waiver! On race morning, determine a meeting place for all your team members.

HOW DO I GET TO THE RACE?

I-5 North to Camp Pendleton exit or I-5 South to Harbor Drive exit. Enter the Camp Pendleton main gate. Continue on Vandegrift, following the RACE EVENT signs (8.5 miles) to the Lake O’Neill Recreation area. Bring a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration for yourself and a valid ID for all passengers.

Shuttles will be available to take you to the venue area beginning at 6 am running until 4 pm.

We’re not kidding when we say ARRIVE EARLY – allow a MINIMUM of TWO HOURS to drive from the front gate, park, shuttle, & check-in your bag. This means that we recommend you arrive at one of the gates no later than 6:00 am. You must be in the venue area prior to the first 9:00 am start. When aboard the base, please follow all posted speed limits.

WHAT IS THE FILTHY FUN FEST?

Live music, multiple restaurants and plenty of food for both breakfast and lunch, great vendors with giveaways, drinks and beer will be available throughout the day – be sure to stay for the fun – and be sure to bring some cash! There is also limited ATM’s on site. There’s a secured bag check area in the venue to drop off your gear while you run. Open showers and closed changing tents are available (note: you will need to shower prior to getting back on the shuttle buses – our shuttle drivers thank you!) There will also be a shuttle service for those who need a ride from the festivities.


DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A TICKET TO THE FILTHY FUN FEST?

No one is required to purchase a ticket for the Filthy Fun Fest; the event is a free concert that is open to the public including non racers.


Awards given to the top 3 overall finishers as well as the top 3 in each division, both military and civilian. Points for the 2012 MARSOC Hard Corps® Race Series awarded to the top 10 overall male and females in both military and civilian categories – individual entrants only.
