Mud Titan Elite Rules:
Overall – Athletes must complete all obstacles as specified in the Mud Titan Elite Rules in order to be eligible for Awards/Prizes, which are awarded to the Top 3 Male and Top 3 Female athletes Overall and Age Group competing in the Mud Titan Elite Wave.
Rule Changes – For safety or logistical reasons, Mud Titan management may change/alter the rules for an obstacle at any time. If a race official or obstacle attendee instructs you to do something that is contrary to the written rules of an obstacle, follow their verbal instructions. Should you disregard verbal instructions from race officials or obstacle attendees, you will be reported to Mud Titan management who will then rule on the matter.
Attempts – Obstacles may be attempted an unlimited number of times. (There are no workout alternatives.) If you are unable to complete an obstacle on your first attempt, you must make your way to the far right lane (Retry lane) or obstacle area to make additional attempts. This is to avoid impeding athletes behind you who are attempting an obstacle for the first time.
Mud Titan Elite Wristbands – Each Mud Titan Elite athlete will be given a Black Mud Titan Elite wristband. (If you do not receive a wristband prior to entering the start line corral, contact a staff member immediately to request one.) Running without the Mud Titan Elite wristband disqualifies you from cash prizes/awards. The black Mud Titan Elite wristband must be worn in addition to your timing chip bib.
Mud Titan Elite Wristbands – If an athlete cannot complete an obstacle and decides to move on to the next obstacle, they must immediately turn in their Mud Titan Elite wristband to the nearest race official or obstacle attendee. If for some reason there is no race official or obstacle attendee present, please remove your wristband and place it on the ground beside the obstacle. If you do not turn in your wristband at the non-completed obstacle you will be reported via radio to Mud Titan management and disqualified from eligibility for prizes/awards.
PLEASE NOTE: Athletes who still have their wristbands at the finish line MUST check in at the RESULTS TENT with the finish line staff. If you do not check in at the results tent to let us know you successfully completed all obstacles and still have your Mud Titan Elite wristband, you will NOT be eligible for prizes/awards.
Obstacle Non-Completion – Even if you can’t complete an obstacle and have lost your wristband, you can still finish the race and receive your finish time. However, you will no longer be eligible to receive prizes/awards.
Assistance – No physical assistance is allowed at any time during the Mud Titan Elite wave. Do not help another athlete with any obstacles. If assistance is provided or received, this will result in obstacle non-completion.
Bib – Mud Titan Elite athletes MUST display their bib prominently on their person at all times during the race. Bibs must be worn on either front of shirt or front of shorts/legs do not place bibs on: arm, head, back, etc.
Course – Athletes must follow ALL course markings. If you become lost or off course, please return to the last known “on course” location. If you cannot find your way back, find a member of the Mud Titan team and they will assist you. Mud Titan Management will have decision-making authority if any issues arise with completing the course as intended.
Obstacles – If you do not understand how to complete an obstacle, please ask a race official or obstacle attendee and then follow instructions as specified.
Fair Play – You may not intentionally impede the progression of another competitor. This behavior may result in obstacle non-completion and the loss of your Mud Titan Elite wristband.
Checking Your Results – Mud Titan Elite results will be broken down into two categories: one for those who successfully completed all obstacles and kept their Mud Titan Elite wristband and the other for those who did not successfully complete all obstacles and lost their Mud Titan Elite wristband.
Category 1 (eligible for prizes/awards)
1 – Mud Titan Elite Male – 100% Obstacle Completion
1 – Mud Titan Elite Female – 100% Obstacle Completion
Category 2 (not eligible for prizes/awards*)
2 – Mud Titan Elite Male – Non-Completed Obstacle(s)
2 – Mud Titan Elite Female – Non-Completed Obstacle(s)
*See Age Group Awards (below) for the exception to this rule.
Age Group Awards – Athletes must complete all obstacles as they are intended in order to be eligible for Top 3 Male & Top 3 Female age group awards. Obstacles can be attempted as many times as needed. There are no workout alternatives. If, and only if, no athlete within a specified age group completes all obstacles successfully, the fastest times in that age group will be used to determine award eligibility. Athletes MUST be present at the awards ceremony to receive cash prizes/awards. We will not mail prizes/awards out after the race.
If only two males complete all obstacles in an age group, they would earn 1st and 2nd place. Then, 3rd place would be awarded to the fastest male finisher in the “Below 100% Obstacle Completion” results group.
If only one female completes all obstacles in an age group, she would earn 1st place. Then, 2nd and 3rd place would be awarded to the fastest two finishers in the “Below 100% Obstacle Completion” results group.
Clothing & Footwear – You may wear gloves, compression gear, padding, knee/joint braces, tape, etc. No spikes or cleats allowed.
Gear – You may not carry any gear that is used to provide physical assistance with an obstacle. All gear, such as nutrition, clothing, etc., must go through, under, and over all obstacles with you.
