Hagg Mud went cupless in 2017! Hagg Mud will no longer have cups at any aid station for liquids. Please plan on bringing your own cup for aid station refreshment. We feel this is a smart thing to do for the environment. We will also be introducing new recycling initiatives to our race in order to limit our environmental impact.
Here are some important dates;
January 12th is the last day to order a long sleeve tech shirt for this years race. Race shirts are no longer included with your registration and must be purchased separately. Race registration will continue up until race day. There is no cap to the number of runners who can run either Saturday or Sunday. Tell your friends and family to sign up!

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Hagg Mud is a running event; it is not a walking event. We understand that walkers would like to participate but we need to keep in mind our volunteers that are working race day, so we must enforce cutoffs that require an average pace of 17:10 per mile. You will be pulled from the course if you do not make the stated cutoff times.
50K Start Time - 7:00am
Cutoff for the first lap is 12:00pm. Any runner not through the start/finish line for their second lap will be unable to continue. We are adding additional cut off times in 2018. You must be through the dam aid station by 1:15 pm and through the Fenders Blue aid station by 3:00 pm. This is a 17:10 minute average pace per mile.
25k Start Time - 9:00am
Please note if you register AFTER Tuesday February 13th, you can only pick up your bib at the event. Your bib will not be at either of the early packet pickups.
The 50K consists of a group start at Boat Ramp C parking area. New in 2018: we will be adding the loop around the Boat Ramp C parking lot at the start in order to spread out runners before hitting the trail. Runners enjoy a little over 3 miles of an out-and-back on a gravel road. This really helps runners to spread everyone out along the course. Please note that this is the biggest elevation change you will encounter for the entire race. When runners come back through the Sain Creek Pavilion, they'll have a chance to shed clothing and prepare for the trails. This is when the mud starts. You will run around Hagg Lake counter clockwise 2 times on the single track trail, pass by a 5 aid stations including the start finish, and eventually make your way back for the post race festivities.
The 25K consists of a group start at Boat Ramp C parking area running through the parking lot that helps spread out the runners. Runners will then go through the Sain Creek Pavilion and parking lot up Sain Creek Rd. Runners enjoy a little less than 1.5 miles of an out-and-back on a gravel road. Please note that this is the biggest elevation change you will encounter for the entire race. Runners will then come back through Sain Creek Pavillon to hit the trail. This is when the mud starts. You will run around Hagg Lake counter clockwise 1 time on the single track trail, pass by a 2 aid stations and eventually make your way back for the post race festivities.
