FAQs

How do I register?

You can register online. We have a competitive (timed) registration option for individual males and females, a couples/team of 2 competitive category, or a competitive team of 4-6 team members.  If you would like to race just for fun and not be timed, you can register in our Just for Fun team option which is open to teams of 4 – 12 team members (see the Registration Section for more details).  Little Muckers Registration is also open online.   Everyone needs to complete a registration form and sign a waiver.  If you are registering as a team, please make sure your form includes the names of all your team members.

How big can our team be?

Competitive teams can be 4-6 people.  Just for fun teams need to be a minimum of 4 people and can go up to 12 maximum.  They can be male, female or co-ed.  Little Mucker’s teams can be from 2-12 team members.

What do we wear that day?

We suggest of course proper gear and footwear.  Gear Up for Outdoors is our official sponsor and would be happy to help you with clothing and footwear for training and race day.  We do encourage team costumes, t-shirts, face painting, hats, etc. There will be prizes awarded for best team costumes.

Do I have to know how to swim?

No.  If there are any water obstacles that are over your head, life jackets will be available. 

What do I get with my registration fee?

Along with the time of your life, you will receive a Mud and Suds (or Little Muckers) souvenir swag and other fun stuff in your race kit provided by our sponsors. 

I am not in the best shape, can I still participate?

Absolutely!  As with any fitness event, training is always a good idea to be prepared for the 5 km trail and terrain, completing the obstacles and most importantly to prevent injuries. We recommend some cardio a couple times per week paired with some upper body strengthening to help you get up and over the obstacles. However, you’ll have the option to bypass any obstacle that you’re not comfortable tackling.

I am pregnant/have a medical issue, can I still participate?

We may know how to put on an awesome event, but our prenatal/medical knowledge is limited.  Please consult your doctor and get his/her approval before registering.

What if I can’t complete a particular obstacle?

We would like you to try to complete each obstacle, but if you feel you can’t then you can go around.

What if it rains?

This event will go on rain or shine.  In the event of a lightening storm, the event will continue on the following day or weekend.  The Facebook page will have all the updates if this happens. 

What is the minimum age to participate?

The minimum age to participate is 12.  Anyone under the age of 18 participating must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver on their registration form.  If you have a child under 12 you can register them in the Little Mucker’s race.  

Where and when do I pick up my race kit?

Race Kit pick up locations and times will be posted here closer to the event date, and will also be emailed out to participants.  If you are not on our email list, please sign up here to get important race day info. 

Can we switch out a team member?

No.  All race registrations are non transferable and not refundable.  If you have another person you would like to add to your team, you can email us at info@mudandsuds.ca to find out if there is space available. 

What is the fundraising requirement?

Each participant is required to fundraise $100 for the Canadian Cancer Society.  Little Mucker’s are required to raise $50 for Camp Quality.  Once you register for the event you can then set up your fundraising link that you can use to collect donations online.  There is also a PDF fundraising sheet for each event that you can print out to manually collect pledges.  All donations are required to be turned in prior to the event when your race kit is picked up.  There will be prizes for the top competitive team, just for fun team, individual male and female, competitive couple and top Little Mucker individual and team with the highest amount of money raised for each charity.  Please see the fundraising section for more information.
