Can I form a team? Must we stay together?

Yes, a majority of FFMR participants run in groups to create and share muddy memories together! Feel the camararie by conquering a FFMR with friends, colleagues, and family!

Can I get a refund on my registration fee?
Unfortunately we cannot offer any refunds. If you find someone who is not already registered for an event and wants to take your place we can transfer your registration up to 30 days prior to the event date.  Please email info@filthyfunevents.com to do so.

What is the participant packet, when do I get it?
The participant packet includes your race bib, bracelet, Filthy Fun tech shirt, goodies from sponsors and other important information.  The packet must be picked up the day of the event during the registration process.  You will need photo ID for this, and should arrive at least one hour prior to your start time! 

Is there somewhere I can leave my bags?
We recommend leaving valuables at home and other items in your car.  We will provide a key drop by the Merchandise area for your convenience.

Can I wear a costume?
Absolutely, we love when people look as ridiculous as we do!  

What shouldn’t I wear?
 Filthy Fun Mud Run takes no responsibility for your belongings!  That being said, wear whatever you want that is appropriate for a family event.  Spikes/Cleats are not allowed.

My buddy is running late, can I get his packet?
No, for legal/insurance reasons we cannot allow this.  However, we will try our best to accommodate them with a later start time.

Must I sign a waiver in order to participate?
Yes, every participant over 18 will sign a waiver during online registration.  Participants under 18 require a parent/guardian electronic signature.

Can we take photos?
Absolutely, we want you to keep your muddy memories forever.  FFMR staff will take several event photos but cannot guarantee each participant's face will be captured. There will be several locations where spectators can photograph participants on the course as well as at the 7' FFMR Finish Wall.  All photos will be available for free download and sharing.

I’m Filthy, is there a shower area?
Indeed, and at most events a classic fire hose will do the job!

What awards can I (try to) win?
Awards for timed events will be given to the top 3 male and top 3 female individual finishers.  The course must be completed by 10:30AM and winners will be announced and awarded a FFMR trophy at 10:45AM.

My friends and family want to come, is there a fee?
That’s great!! In most cases there is not a fee.  Please check the event page for any parking/spectator fees specific for each event.

Is there any on-site parking?
Hopefully!  There will almost always be on-site parking, in the event that a facility does not have adequate parking Filthy Fun Mud Run will provide a shuttle to and from a nearby lot.  Be sure to check out the parking info for the event you are attending.  Parking fees may apply and carpooling is strongly recommended.  

Are pets allowed?
No…while we do love pets they must stay home!

Are there any obstacles that spectators can view?
Filthy Fun Mud Run always tries to create spectator viewing areas for some Filthy views, however, this is not always possible and spectators may not enter the course at any time.  

What is at the post-race area?
The post-race festivities are held in the common start/finish area.  It may include music, beer, food, sponsor tables, the option to purchase Filthy Fun Mud Run apparel and more.

Course Info

Is there more than one course?
We offer courses for anyone 4 years of age or older.  Please see your event's registration page for pricing and course details. 

Is there a time limit to finish the course?  
No, finish at your own pace…but the obstacles won’t get any easier!

What if I can’t complete an obstacle?
Please notify a nearby course official and we will assist you as needed.

I can’t swim, can I still participate?
Yes, there is no need to swim during the event.  However, there are water crossings and obstacles….so at least work on your doggie paddle!

Are there water stations throughout the courses?
Of course, we don't expect you to eat mud without a chaser... We will have multiple hydration stations throughout the course to keep you refreshed.  A 5k course typically has 2 water stations on the course and 1 at the finish line.

What if I get injured?
No worries!!  We have trained EMS personnel on site who will patch you up.  Just make sure a course official knows (we won’t question your toughness).
