Texas Warrior Mudout is BACK & better than EVER!
This year we introduce the ALL NEW individual competition - BATTLE OF THE ELITE !!
DO NOT WORRY! The original TEAM competition is still on with BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED categories.
Be the Change & Midland Athletic Company are proud to bring back this memorable race to Rock the Desert, Midland, TX! This 5k mudder obstacle course will feature 25 obstacles that will be sure to bring the WARRIOR out in you. And YES!... You will get seriously muddy!
Texas Warrior Mudout is benefiting Be the Change Permian Basin who are committed to bringing healing, hope, and connection to our teens in the area. Their goal is to inspire teens to be the change they wish to see in the world. This is achieved by working with students through a program called iMPOWER which delivers 16 one hour weekly sessions. Be the Change has successfully impacted thousands of teens in the Permian Basin and this event ensures they can continue to reach many more!
For the GROUP races you will sign up individually under the desired tab- BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED. Each group will determine if the group, as a whole, is BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, or ADVANCED to ensure correct time slot is assigned. Then, during registration, you will be REQUIRED to either join an EXISTING group or create a NEW group. IF you create a NEW group you will create a GROUP PASSWORD to share with other group members. Groups are required to have at least 3 participants.
