Monster Mud Run at Loon Mountain – July 13!

We have some big news for you. Are you sitting down? We hope so, because you need to start conserving your energy. Like, now.


Even though it’s only been six months since last year’s Monster Mud Run, we decided to move this year’s run to Saturday, July 13!

It will still be the same fun, mud-splattered party it’s always been, and we hope you’ll continue to wear your craziest costumes. If the guy who dressed up as a toilet for last year’s race shows up again, we’ll be stoked. He nailed it.

At least he doesn't need to take bathroom breaks. Genius.

What will change is the race course itself. With help from the world’s foremost mudologists, We’ve designed a 5k course that will absolutely test your commitment to filth. From classic obstacles like the Snowmaking Boot Camp to new challenges like the Dumpster Dive, the new course is guaranteed to test you – but in a fun way. Check out the video from last year’s race, and get excited.

Here are just a few of the new obstacles you’ll see on the course this summer:

  • Monkey Bars – Think monkey bars are for kids? There’s no monkeying around with this undulating, slippery setup.
  • Wall Puzzle – You’ll need all of your problem-solving skills to scale this wall, which is pretty skimpy on hand holds.
  • Arachnophobia – Run through a giant spider web and try to maintain your composure. The good news?  No giant spider.


If you sign up by May 27, entry fees are just $55 for individuals, $110 for teams of two, and $220 for teams of four. To register for the Monster Mud run, visit or call 1-800-229-LOON. Day of registration will run from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the Governor Adams Lodge. Race heats begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue until 11:45 a.m.


Each Monster Mudder will receive a Monster Mud Run tech t-shirt and water bottle. Although racers must be at least 14 years old on race day, there will be plenty of activities for the entire family, including a “Mini Monsters” race for kids under 14, and a Life is Good® Good Vibes Village filled with games and giveaways.


The Mountain Club on Loon will also offer $99 rooms to racers, along with a $30 food voucher to the Black Diamond Bar and Grille. Just call 1-800-229-7829 to book your room, and be sure to mention “Monster Mud Run” to get your discount.

The Viaggio Spa will also offer racers a 40% discount on sports massages and 30% discount on Dead Sea Mud Wraps, if you somehow didn’t get enough mud during the race. Call 1- 800-229-7829 and mention “Monster Mud Run” for these specials. Based on availability.


Be sure to swing by the sick after-race party, where we’ll award prizes to the top male and female finishers, the top duo, and the top team of four. We’ll also award prizes for best costume and best team name. Can you come up with a more mind-blowing team name than “Chafing the Dream”? So far, no one has. This is your shot at greatness, so don’t waste it.

We’ll see you in the mud.
