Participating in the Big Muddy Challenge is just the beginning of a long-lasting relationship between us and our customers. Be it event related or not, if you need us for any reason, we urge you to send us a note through the form below or private message us through the Big Muddy Challenge Facebook Page. In the meantime here's a list of questions we're frequently asked, with some helpful answers.
The BMC is a rain or shine event. The race will not be canceled for rain. This is the Big Muddy Challenge! If there is lightning, we’ll delay waves until it passes. If there’s severe weather that prevents the event from being held at all on Saturday, it’ll most likely be moved to Sunday or the next weekend.
BMC courses range between 2 and 3 miles with an average twelve obstacles. BMC is proud to encourage participants to go at their own pace. You will hear equally loud cheers regardless if your team walks or runs. Average finish times range from 29 to 53 minutes. Additionally, all obstacles have clearly marked “walk around” paths as an option.
You will get wet and muddy. If you have brand new kicks or sweet gear it’s probably best to not wear them. Jewelry of all kinds are encouraged to be removed and left at home or in the car. Costumes however are highly encouraged!
Adults need a valid govt ID and a plan to let yourself shine.
Don’t worry about paper tickets nor hard copy waiver forms, your online registration gets you 100% ready for check in on race morning.
There is a $5 per car parking fee that will be collected by venue staff upon arrival. There is no charge for spectators and the event venue has waived fees to access the park for the Big Muddy Challenge community on event day.
At the Big Muddy Challenge we do not charge spectators to cheer and congratulate their family or friends along the course. For everyone’s safety we set up specific spectator areas to keep the course clear for participants. We will kindly ask spectators to remain in the designated areas as they celebrate.
Big Muddy Challenge has on course photographers for each event. Great social sharing and holiday card moments! Odds are the BMC photo team will capture a sweet photo of you and your team. The week after the event all participants can expect an email with FREE access to all photos available for download.
Beyond an incredible experience shared with family & friends, all participants receive a limited edition Big Muddy Challenge Finisher Shirt and FREE event photos. On-site sponsors also have plenty of give aways for the BMC community!
