Our Course and Obstacles

Course Map

The map above is a sample layout of the MuckFest® MS course. The layout of each event course, including which obstacles are possible and their placement, is different based on each event site. However, for all events the MuckFestival area will afford spectators with great views of the obstacles for mucktacular photo opportunities.

Muckin' Corral

Muckin' Corral

This is where you’ll line up with your muck-mates to get ready to run. Be prepared for some mucky pre-run shenanigans.

Start

Start

It is customary to hoot, holler, quack or otherwise scream when you are released from the Muckin' Corral. A light drizzle falls from above to get you nicely primed for the mud ahead.

1. Triple Pits

1. Triple Pits

The slippy slapstick starts with three muddy ups and downs to get your heart pumping. Give a helping hand to any mucker mired in the mud.

2. Big Balls

2. Big Balls

One big, swinging pair is not enough. Try nine gigantic balls swinging over mucky trenches. Excellent photo op for friends and family!

3. Spider Web (Under)

3. Spider Web (Under)

Stretchy ropes and mud below, while muckers climb above. Oh, the tangled webs we weave!

4. Spill Hill

4. Spill Hill

Updated for 2015! We’ve added a low-to-the-ground “slither screen” to this muddy climbing hill. Now’s your chance to be the half-snake, half-mountain goat you’ve always dreamed of!

5. Tunnel of Love (Over)

5. Tunnel of Love (Over)

It’s a mini science lesson in friction when you throw a leg or more over this tubular tunnel. Just remember to move it along and keep it PG-13 if at all possible.

6. Shake & Quake

6. Shake and Quake

New for 2015! Choose one of three shaky bridges (no handrails) over a big pit of mucky goodness. It’s a test of nerves as you will get a serious case of the “jelly legs” while trying to stay vertical.

7. Tight Rope

7. Tight Rope

Updated for 2015! This one’s a real balancing act. This year we’ve interwoven the rope lanes, so now the ropes (and muckers!) crisscross in the middle. You’re sure to make a splash with this one.

8. MT. Muck-imanjaro

8. MT. Muck-imanjaro

A high ropey peak. Don’t worry about altitude sickness, just worry about how mucking awesome you’ll look at the summit!

9. Dragon Crawl

9. Dragon Crawl

It matters not whether you go under or over, you’re going to get wet, my friend.

10. The Spinner

10. The Spinner

Updated for 2015! A fun test of strength as our giant steel spinner takes you over (or into) the water. Assorted hand-holds added. Watch for mid-air acrobatics from some of the more circus-minded muckers.

11. Crash Landing

11. Crash Landing

New for 2015! Get a taste of what it’s like to be a stunt double. You’ll climb ladders up to a high platform and leap onto an authentic crash pad, roll down a muddy hill, then take a bow for your adoring fans and muddy minions.

12. Flying Muckers

12. Flying Muckers

New for 2015! Grab onto a zip line, step off a platform and soar like a dirty bird over a mucky pit on 35-foot zip-lines. May cause loud squawks, Tarzan yells, and chest-beating. A clean get-away from this one is unlikely. Loincloths optional.

13. Walk on Water

13. Walk on Water

You’ll feel pretty mucking awesome when running across the surface of the water and leaping ever-so-carefully over pontoon barrels, assuming you don’t end up in the water.

14. Muck Off

14. Muck Off

Take a flying leap with friends. This one’s a scream in more ways than one.

15. Swing Set

15. Swing Set

Do the thing you were never allowed to do in elementary school and jump as high as you can off the swings. Great photo op for your fans.

16. Skid Mark

16. Skid Mark

If your drawers weren’t mud-colored before, they will be after you take on the Skid Mark.

17. Tunnel of Love (Under)

17. Tunnel of Love (Under)

Updated for 2015! You went over it before, now you go through it for some sloppy seconds. This year, the tunnel is set free to roll, so aim well for a clean or not-so-clean entry.

18. Spider Web (Over)

18. Spider Web (Over)

You already ran under it and got caught up in the web of bungees. Now get some eight-legged exercise high above. Please don’t entomb your muck-mates in silk.

19. Belly Crawl

19. Belly Crawl

Updated for 2015! This year, you’ll be crawling under Puck, our giant inflatable duck. A little fowl-mouthed fun (sorry) before you finish.

Finish

Finish

Try and cross arm-in-arm or hand-in-hand with your team. Strike a muck-heroic pose, take a bow, and give the Puck monument a rub for continued good luck!

Muckfestival

Muckfestival

Updated for 2015! This is the epicenter of the muck-stravaganza—music, food, beer (or soda), games, MuckGear, a Lil’ Muckers area for the kids and awesome photo ops for obstacles plus the start and finish.

First Aid & Hydration

First Aid and Hydration

Real medical professionals, not just actors with stethoscopes and good hair.

Water for drinking, as opposed to water for dunking.
