2017 Spring Combat Mud Run Results

When & Where

Saturday, April 15, 2017

National Guard Armory
2412 Infantry Rd.
Wilmington, NC


The Combat Mud Run offers two distances:

5K/Meathead Mile

The 5K/Meathead Mile offers an extra mile of obstacles to the 5K for those looking for an extra challenge.


Start Times

8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. – Wave Starts

When you register, you will be asked to select a Start Time. Please know the start time is an estimated time so all participants do not arrive at the same time, creating long lines.

Plan to be at the start line 5 minutes prior to your Start Time wearing your race number on the front of your shirt.

The Spring Combat Mud Run Is Back!

Run, jump, and crawl through obstacles and mud. This is a great course for both the seasoned mud runner and the newbie. Nestled in the heart of the National Guard Armory at the Wilmington International Airport, this course is not only used for the Combat Mud Run, but has been used by the military for training. The volunteers include active duty military, veterans, and ROTC.

Don’t just read about it. Check out the fun and obstacles from past mud runs.  COURSE PICS

Course Information

THE 5K COURSE: The 5K course offers just enough of a challenge for the athletic, but is friendly for participants looking to take on a mud run as a new challenge or prepare for those mud runs that have fire and electricity (no shocking here!). Does one of the obstacles appear intimidating? Don’t Worry! You can do 20 burpees instead of an obstacle.

THE 5K/MEATHEAD MILE COURSE: Needing more of a challenge? The 5K/Meathead Mile course is the 5K with an extra mile of obstacles and running through rough terrain.
