Want an idea of what you’re getting yourself into?? Here you go! The Del Mar Mud Run is for fun-lovers of ALL athletic abilities, ages 13 and up! Don’t worry – you are more than welcome to walk this epic obstacle course if you’re not the running type… P.S. Costumes encouraged! See you in the mud!

Get ready for some good, dirty, ridiculous fun on this “Tour de Mud” through a 5K run/walk course at the legendary Del Mar Fairgrounds!

The Del Mar Mud Run course is professionally designed to utilize wading, jumping, climbing and balance skills throughout a mud- and fun-intensive course! Mud runs are ALWAYS better with friends, so get your favorite crew together and let’s GO!

Suggested attire and gear

A few things to keep in mind before you hit the mud…

  • Tie your shoes tight so the mud doesn’t suck them off your feet! P.S. Don’t wear your brand-new expensive running shoes, stick to the ones you’re cool with getting dirty!
  • Loose clothes will slow you down especially if you have pockets that will hold water and mud!
  • We highly encourage costume-wearing to make it even more fun!
  • A complimentary bag check will be available prior to the race for keys, wallets, cell phones, etc.
  • A change of clothes and a spare towel for post-race cleanup is highly recommended unless you are riding in someone else’s car… then don’t worry about it!
  • Please note: The Del Mar Mud Run is not responsible for any items lost on the course during the race, so please do not wear any valuable items (ex. jewelry).
