There are a number of different ways to participate in TMD!


MULTI-LAP FAST PASS: NEW for 2023 is the Multi-Lap Fast Pass option! This is an ADD-ON to any heat, designed for runners who are looking to get a little more time on the obstacles! Runners will first complete the full 5K course, and then be able to continue on to a specialized Fast Pass route, available only to them! This course bypasses most of the elevation and focuses on all the incredible obstacles around the bottom of the hill. This is a non-competitive add-on that allows runners to complete as many Fast Pass laps as they would like, up until a cutoff time TBD. Get a taste of an Ultra race experience with the Multi-Lap Fast Pass in 2023!

​INDIVIDUAL COMPETITIVE: This one is simple, it's a race to the finish line with bragging rights, medals, and prizes on the line for the top three female and male finishers. You'll run solo against the field in one of two competitive heats to see who ends up on top! The 5K race is one lap around the course, while the 10K Double Dare racers will take two laps. In order to post a valid time in these heats, all obstacles must be completed successfully by the racer.

INDIVIDUAL OPEN: Don't have a team or prefer to take on the challenge by yourself, but not really looking to compete? These heats offer a non-competitive opportunity to take on the course by yourself for the fun of it! You will receive a finishing time, but no prizes will be awarded in these heats.

​TEAM OPEN: Teamwork and fun are the name of the game here. You'll work together with your teammates to finish the TugMudDare course! There is no minimum or maximum team size, so grab some friends and assemble your team! Team heats are NOT competitive. Team's will receive a finishing time only for fun, no prizes are awarded in these heats.

​JUNIOR: The Jr.MudDare is run on a smaller, separate course than the TugMudDare. This run is open to all kids ages 3-15 years old. Children 5 and under require a parent or guardian to participate with them (no additional fee required). This is a fun run with all kids receiving a finishers medal for completing the course!
