Frequently Asked questions
When will the Cascadia Vehicle Tent (CVT) winner be announced?
We will announce the winner of the vehicle tent at 12:55 pm. The tent will be on display throughout the event. The winner must be able to take the tent after the event is over or arrange for pickup or delivery (shipping at recipient's expense).
What time will the mud run start?
The competitive timed wave starts promptly at 1 pm. The non-competitive waves will start at 1:15 pm in 5 minute intervals. Waves are selected at the time of registration and the wave numbers are listed on the participant bibs. Slower individuals or families with young children are asked to position themselves or their team at the back of their wave for safety and to ensure the enjoyment of all participants.
How long is the course?
Is the mud run timed?
Although the event is designed to be a non-timed, non-competitive family-friendly event, the race does include a timed wave open to 100 competitive participants (ages 16 and older only). Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and top three female finishers in the competitive/timed race.
Can we participate as teams or as a family?
Yes. There will be waves made up of all ages. Please note that at least one person age 12 years or older is required to be a "race partner" with anyone
8 years old or younger. If registering separately, please select the same wave on the registration form to ensure you get placed in the same race wave. Businesses are also encouraged to enter employee teams.
Is there a discount for teams?
It costs $200 to register a team of 10 participants. You will also receive a code that will provide a $5/per adult and $3/per child discount for any additional participants joining that team. The team captain creates the team and selects a wave. Each team member must select the same wave when they register. The system does not hold team member spots when a team is created, we encourage those creating a team to all register the same day or have the team captain select a wave with plenty of spots to fill.
What if the wave is sold out?
You will need to register for a wave that has open spots. We prepare participant bibs & packets as waves fill-up so unfortunately we are not able to add more spots or make adjustments. Plan ahead with your friends and family to ensure everyone gets in the same wave.
What do I wear?
This spring break event in the Pacific Northwest could see temperatures in the 70s — or it could be snowing/raining! The race goes on rain or shine, but check the weather forecast and bring extra layers just in case. But most important is to come prepared to get WET and DIRTY! There is a good chance that whatever you are wearing will never be the same again. Some participants bring knee pads and gloves to help with crawling and climbing! Duct tape can also be used to secure your shoes (so they don't get sucked off in the mud).
Can we wear costumes?
Go for it! We encourage you to get as creative as you want. Just make sure the costume does not impair your vision or make you trip or get snagged on an obstacle. There will be a prize for the best dressed.
Will you have a bag check at the venue?
Yes, there is a tent where you can check-in your items prior to your wave. Please do not leave any valuables. You will need to show your bib number or proof of ID to claim your items afterwards.
Will there be showers to clean off the mud?
Sort of. There won't be regulation bathroom showers, but the Sunriver Fire Department can rinse you off with their fire hose waterfall. Be sure to bring towels and a change of clothes. There will be tents to change in.
What do I do with my muddy clothes & shoes after the race?
You’ll want to bring large garbage bags for all your muddy stuff. Also, bring a towel and clean clothes to change into in the on-site changing tents.
Once registered, when and where do I pick up my race packet?
You can pick up your race packet the day before the race in front of the ice rink in The Village at Sunriver from 11am until 3pm. On race day you can pick up at the event site starting at 11:30am.
Where do we park?
Please try to carpool or get dropped off as event-site parking is limited. When site parking is full, all vehicles will be directed to park at SHARC (57250 Overlook Road). There will be free shuttles running between 11am-4:00pm to bring you to/from the event site. The pickup area is near the Overlook Road parking entrance. Go to the Getting Here tab for more information. Allow extra time for off-site parking and transportation to ensure you don't miss your wave.
I've never run a mud run; what makes it different from a regular run?
A LOT! This mud run is only 1.5 miles and is intended for ages 4 and up, including grandparents. The course has a half-mile run/walk, obstacles and multiple mud pits to run, crawl and jump through. Expect to get muddy – over and over again!
What if it snows or rains?
It means more mud and muck! The muddy fun goes on, rain or shine.
What kind of obstacles will there be?
The obstacles include walls of varying heights, tires to step through, a spider web weave, sloth crossing, mud crawl and over & under obstacles. The main obstacles are the mud pits and formed dirt berms. Some obstacles include water, but it's not very deep. If you are not competitive, don't worry. While we encourage you to try each obstacle, if it's more fun for you to skip it, we won't tell. The course is intended to be family-friendly, so take your time and enjoy yourself! NOTE: Timed event participants are required to complete every obstacle to qualify for awards.
Do I need to know how to swim?
No. The mud trenches are only a couple of feet deep. Unless you find it easier to be horizontal, you can slog through on your feet.
Will you have a designated kids’ race course?
No. This is a short course compared to most mud runs. This is a family event and we hope to see children, parents and grandparents out there together!
Don't forget, at least one person age 12 years or older is required to be a race partner with anyone 8 years old or younger.
Can I bring my dog?
No. For the safety of racers and spectators, do not bring pets to the event.
Will food and beverages be available to purchase?
There will be beverages, light snack and meal options available. Nearby Hola restaurant will also be open for lunch.
Will there be alcoholic beverages?
Yes. Sunriver Brewing Company and Hola! will have beer and margaritas. Each run participant 21 years and over will receive a voucher for one adult beverage. Bring cash for additional beverage or food purchases.
Valid photo ID is required for alcohol purchases.
How much does it cost to watch?
There is no charge to be a spectator and provide "cheer" support.
Can I buy merchandise at the event?
Yes, we will be selling a limited number of event T-shirts for men, women and children.
Can I transfer my registration or get a refund if I can't attend?
The ENTRY FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERABLE (no refunds, transfers, exchanges). You may not sell or give your bib number to another person.
Where can I stay?
There are numerous vacation rental properties in Sunriver. Click HERE for more information.
