The Del Mar Mud Run 5k is back at the historic Del Mar Fairgrounds for its 4th consecutive year. One of the most fun mud runs in the world, it has attracted celebrities, international media and participants from across the country.
All participants will receive:
If you register for the morning time slot your run will start at 8am, 9am, 10am or 11am.
If you register for the afternoon time slot your run will start at 12pm or 1pm.
We will send out an email to all participants approximately 2 weeks prior to race day letting you know what time your run will start. Times are first come, first serve so the sooner you register the earlier you run! If you sign up as a team you are guaranteed to be put in the same start time. If you have a specific time request you can send it to email@example.com and we will do our best to accommodate it.
We launch runners onto the course every two minutes, so you are guaranteed to start within a half hour of your designated start time.
Participants can sign up as an individual or as part of a team! See below for details and pricing info.
