The Best 5k Mud Runs in Raleigh-Durham

Obstacle Course Racing can be intimidating but Average Joe’s Mud Run is all about the fun. We don’t time the run, and participants of all ages (no restrictions there) are encouraged to skip any of our 18 fixed obstacles….or try them multiple times, depending on how you feel.  Average Joe’s is friendly to your wallet as well with the lowest youth and family pricing for any full-scale course around. We’re adding a HUGE, 100′ Slip-n-Slide near the end of the course, and water balloons will rain down from launching stations in the open areas. After the race, you can grab a bite and enjoy some live music, head back to the slide, or hit the mud dodgeball fields for open play and our complimentary Avg. Joe’s Dodgeball Tournament. And, of course, Race T-Shirts and one free beer for everyone! More Info>>

Other Mud Runs come and go, but the Zombie Escape consistently delivers a truly apocalyptic mud run experience!  Its a 5k obstacle course, with a twist! Your mission is to slog through 18 muddy obstacles and 4 treacherous zombie infested zones without losing your “health” flags. The Zombie Escape at Panic Point rolls out for the EIGHTH time on April 29, 2017. If you’ve never raced with us, you don’t want to miss it.  50,000 gallons of water bring the mud to life.  Great food, amazing live music, and the most spirited racers you’ve ever seen! Its “Killer Cardio” at its finest. Whether you’re a serious OCR veteran competing in our early Elite Wave, or a couch potato doing your first mud run, this race will train you, challenge you, and bring out your inner conqueror.
