Muddy Buddy


Partners begin in the same wave with the biker beginning the race first and the runner starting shortly after. The course is approximately 6 miles long and is separated into 5 legs by obstacles along the way. The first obstacle is near the one mile mark. Assuming that the biker is traveling faster than the runner, the biker will first approach the obstacle transition area. The biker will drop the bike and conquer the obstacle and start running to the 2nd transition/obstacle. The runner will then approach the first transition area, conquer the obstacle, find the bike and start riding to the 2nd transition/obstacle area. The team will continue to leap frog throughout the course switching between biking and running. Because the course has five legs, the person who is the stronger biker should begin the race biking, and the stronger runner, should start out running so they are doing three legs of their stronger discipline, and two of the other.

There will be five obstacles on each Muddy Buddy course. Mystery events could be challenges such as a cargo net crawl, a wall, 30′ inflatable slide, and balance beam. At every race teams will have to conquer the famous Mud Pit before crossing the finish line together.

The race divisions include All Male, All Female, Coed, and Beast (team combined weight over 400 lbs.) Divisions are broken down as follows: 45 and under, 46-55, 56-65, 66-75, 76-85, 86-95, 96 and over. Those ages are the combined ages of the two team members on race day. There will also be a Masters division for all teams with a combined age of 96+. The Beast category will be open and not separated by gender. Medals will be awarded to the top 5 teams in each division by gender or by age.
