Unlike other mud events that charge anywhere from $20 to $40 per person just to come and watch, our spectators are totally free! We only ask for a $10 per car fee to park. So carpool and save a couple of bucks, but enjoy watching your friends and family without paying! Enjoy listening to the DJ and purchasing food from our vendors while your crazy friends and family slip and slide through mud! We have several spectator friendly areas and shortcuts for you to get there. Maps will be available the day of the event to guide you.

  • Free inflatables for children. Children must have an adult accompany them at all times.
  • Watch your family and friends challenge themselves from your lawn chair or work the course with them.
  • No tailgating, alcohol, smoking, or pets.
  • Please be aware that the campus does have classes, students who live on campus and employees who work on the weekend, and that all buildings are off limits for participants.
