Obstacle Course Information

Please see the Course Map and familiarize yourself with the Obstacle Rules to prepare yourself for taking on the Goodwill Mud Run course. In an effort to create a fair playing field for participants, course previews or practice runs are strictly prohibited. Trespassing on the Goodwill Mud Run Obstacle Course opens up participants to the potential for injury and places Goodwill Industries in a position to withhold a team from racing.

Wear clothing that you don’t mind throwing away. Organizers recommend participants wear pants that fasten tightly as drawstring shorts and pants tend to get stuck and come off in the mud. A running, trail or some form of hiking shoe/boot is recommended. You cannot run barefooted and NO flip flop or slip-on sport shoe will be allowed. Some participants find it helpful to duct tape their shoes to their feet.

Kid Zone

The Kid Zone is open to children ages 4 and up. Parents/guardians must sign a waiver for their children to run through the Kid’s Zone course. A Kid’s Zone participant does not receive an event t-shirt with registration.

T-Shirt & Costume Contest

The Goodwill Mud Run has a separate T-shirt and Costume contests. Let the photographers at the registration table know your team would like to enter either contest and at that time they will take your picture. Goodwill Mud Run race organizers will vote on the contest entries the week after the event. The winning team from each contest will win $150; Runner-up team in each category will receive $100. Have fun, but please keep t-shirt designs and costumes “family friendly.”
