Race day registration is available!  On Saturday morning from 8:45 – 10am, come to the festival tent in the base area at Purgatory Resort and we’ll get you signed up.

Get muddy and conquer the obstacles on this adventure race that is fun for the whole family.  This is one of Purgatory’s most popular events of the year.

This mud run has more than 20 great obstacles, tons of mud, and the most amazing scenery of any mud run around!
