About This Activity

Fun for the "Adults" and then fun with the Kids!

The morning waves will all be for our racers 12 & up, while the afternoon wave(s) (times TBD) will be reserved for families. If you are an adult with children 12 & under and have paid your race entry, you may run the course in the morning and then AGAIN in the afternoon along with your kids. Wait, let us repeat that in bolder text:All paid adults may race in the morning adult waves and again with their registered children (under 12) in the "family" waves.

7 Acres of MUD.We start with our corn field, which is home to our Fall Festival Corn Maze, and flood it, till it, and bulldozer it to create a gooey, thick swamp of mud for us to set up the course!Some Tips:Tie your shoes REALLY good, a little duct tape wouldn't hurt to keep 'em on. If you lose 'em, there's a very good chance you won't ever see them again. (Who knows, they could sprout up in the field next year!)Ear plugs are a really good idea during the race, and make sure to bring towels, flip-flops and a change of shorts for afterwards. Don't worry about the shirt - you'll have a sweet Farm Fun Mud Run tee to slip on after a quick, cold shower!Expect to get wet & muddy from head-to-toe, so don't bring anything along with you that isn't waterproof (ahem, smartphones hate mud) and you don't want to potentially lose or get ruined. Of course, leave all your jewelry at home - this isn't a fashion show or a night out on the town! A Dozen (or so) Obstacles - Big & SmallWhile mud is the biggest obstacle (covering every square inch of the 7-acre farm) there are also some fun and slighjtly challenging obstacles to tackle! Walls, cargo nets, tubes, balance beams, tires of ALL sizes to flip, crawl through, run over, carry... you'll surely be "tired" of seeing radials for a while! Simply put - if you're looking for an extreme, challenging course - keep looking. We created a course for safe, family-friendly fun and not for the weekend warrior who's looking to win... well, anything. There are no awards, no timers, and no attitudes. Show up and have fun, help others, and contribute to a family atmosphere - got it?StuffAll racers get a sweet FARM FUN MUD RUN T-shirt and finisher's medal - if you don't get stuck in the course! "Showers" are provided - that is, if you consider cold water from hose a shower! Vertuccio Farms features a great concession stand in the family area, or you can pack a lunch and watch the kiddos have a blast on the Extreme Bouncy Pillow, Train Rides, Slides and more. Please, no outside alcohol - this is a family-friendly event!
