What to Wear
We strongly recommend ‘QUICK DRY / COMPRESSION SPORTS CLOTHING’ long sleeve t-shirt and long pant, and long socks to make your course comfortable and provide protection. Running or hiking shoes (no metal cleats allowed) are sufficient to attempt the course. Keep clothing light, as you are guaranteed to warm up during the course. It is likely that after completing the event you will be wet and cold so a towel and warm change of clothes is an essential kit to bring on the day, so you can enjoy the post race festivities in comfort. DO NOT WEAR anything valuable and loose items such as spectacles and jewelry that can come off easily.

The Mud Warrior military inspired course are designed to physically mimics the functional, whole-body movements made by our ancestors' thousands of years ago: natural movements such as running, balancing, crawling, jumping, climbing, and carrying. Together with our Race Director, obstacles are tested by our military consultant to supervise and conduct various safety precautions so anyone can finish the course!
Course Safety & Aid Station: If you do not feel comfortable completing any obstacle, you DO NOT need to attempt it; simply let the marshal know and you can continue on to the next obstacle. You MUST be able to swim 25 meters if you attempt water obstacles. Every obstacle is supervised by 1 to 3 marshals for your safety and give guidance when needed.
If you have any difficulties on the course (e.g. injury or illness) please sit by the side of the course and ask one of your fellow Warriors to report your condition to the marshal or medic staff. Do not try to find a shortcut back to the Start/Finish area as this makes it very difficult for us to find you. Medical crews are stand by on site for participants needing urgent care. In the case of emergency, an ambulance is ready to deliver anyone to the nearest hospital.
Refreshments are available at the Finish Line. This is your photography moment to remember. Upon finishing, our staff will pass you the medal & finisher t-shirt.
