Shirt sizes not guaranteed after 6/5/10. We will do our best to accomodate everyone. (We hope we can guess correctly using our Magic 8 Ball.)

    Events:
    Hill climbing, mud crawling, obstacle avoiding, trail running through good ol' Humble, Texas mud. The course is 5K-ish and guaranteed to make you muddy.
    There is also a 1 mile Mud Mini for children ages 3-7. This will allow them to run a mile of the race and get muddy if they have no interest in participating in the 5K distance. Children running the 1 mile must be accompanied by an adult. Children are not allowed to go in the mud unattended.

    Rules:
    - Wear your grungy clothes and old sneakers, because more than likely they won't be going home with you
    - There will be several fire trucks to hose down participants at the finish and "virtual" (imaginary) changing tents for participants
    - Bring a big trash bag, dry clothes and a towel
    - You may want to duct tape your shorts, jog bras, and shoes on
    - Leave your jewelry at home- Mud Monsters love to eat fine jewelry
    - Drink fluids before, during, and after your race
    - Do not dive head first into the mud pits
    - This is a fun run so help your neighbor if he or she gets stuck or loses a shoe
    - There will be emergency staff at the finish line
    - We are not responsible for your personal gear but we will have an attended drop bag area
    - Do not let your children go in the mud unattended
    - Wear a cool costume! There will be prizes based on creativity. Team themes, Mad Max, Smurfs, pirates, cheerleaders, critters, and guys in drag have been seen on the course before.
    - No pets, no strollers, no bikes, no rollerblades, no skateboards allowed on course
    - Bites and boo-boos are not our fault

    Course description:
    Untimed 5K-ish running, walking, crawling over, under, through, around mud, obstacles, slower participants, etc. We're planning to have plenty of mud, hills, and obstacles to keep ya'll busy for a while. Map The roads have changed a bit from the map, but it's pretty close to the course we plan to use. If we find areas with more mud, of course we'll run through those instead.
